Riassunto: IS MARIE THE SECRET ONLY CHILD OF AVA GARDNER? Ava Gardner, MGM films' leading lady of the 1940s and 50s, beautiful, strong-willed wife of Mickey Rooney, then Artie Shaw and finally Frank Sinatra, heart-breaker of Howard Hughes and others, never had a child? Or did she? Ava was born in December 1922. She grew up poor in rural North Carolina, youngest of seven children of Mary Elizabeth and Jonas Gardner. In her teens she blossomed into a beautiful young woman. Professional photographs taken while she visited her eldest sister in New York City led to a screen test and eventually to a sizzling Hollywood career. Marie Elizabeth Foglia was born in April 1938 in New York's Borough of The Bronx. Her father, William Foglia, had theatrical connections in New York City and was a movie extra. At five, Marie was put temporarily into an orphanage with her younger sister. She recalls that while there she was visited by her father and by Ava Gardner, who said that she was Marie's mother, but could not take her back with her because her own mother had just died. In the ensuing decades, numerous visits from Ava occurred. Ava Gardner would have been 15 and unwed at the time of Marie's birth. Oddly, Marie's birth certificate was sealed - and not at birth but when Marie was 15, two years after Gardner and Sinatra married. She has sought to get it unsealed, to no avail. She would welcome DNA testing with a Gardner relative. Ava Gardner's Daughter? explores the strengths and weaknesses of Marie's story. It describes the investigations that have attempted to answer that central question. Douglas Winslow Cooper, Ph.D., is a retired scientist, now a freelance writer and book-writing partner. He is the author of Ting and I: A Memoir of Love, Courage, and Devotion, available through Outskirts Press and elsewhere. Marie Elizabeth Foglia is a mother and semi-retired clerical worker and supervisor. She has long sought to get conclusive evidence of her mother's identity.
