The Barefoot Contessa

Written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and starring Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner and Edmond O'Brien, The Barefoot Contessa is a 1954 Oscar winning film about the life and loves of fictional Spanish sex symbol Maria Vargas.

With extraordinary beauty, talent and grace, Maria Vargas (Ava Gardener) was born to be a star. Aided by American movie director Harry Dawes (Humphrey Bogart), she attains great success and fortune in Hollywood's land of dreams.

But, though she gives her all for stardom, there is one thing Maria will never compromise - her soul. No matter what the cost. The Barefoot Contessa will dance to no one's music but her own.

The Barefoot Contessa is one of the shining lights in the often maligned career of the legendary beauty Ava Gardner. For that reason alone it is truly a Classic.
