To see how the movie’s chosen lovers looked together Ava was also tested in a love scene with her fledgling costar. The intensely masculine ex-circus acrobat Burt Lancaster was still new to that sort of intimacy on a soundstage and gave a less than professional response to the demands of the scene. Some years later, asked by a French filmmaker what it was like the first time he kissed Ava Gardner for the camera, Lancaster said proudly “I got an erection.” Apparently such a rampant hard-on that the entire crew broke up over it. Ava good -naturedly accepted it as a compliment.

We’re all forgotten sooner or later. But not films. That’s all the memorial we should need or hope for.

Edmond O’Brien, Ava Gardner, Burt Lancaster, and an unknown man on the Universal lot for the filming of The Killers (1946). I was amazed to find this!
