Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man – Ava Gardner

While I’m thinking about tragic Hollywood love, here’s Ava Gardner – her own voice, thankyouverymuch – singing “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man” from Show Boat (1951). She and Frank Sinatra had another of the most heartbreaking stories in all of Hollywood, as far as I’m concerned, and I choose to believe (with very little evidence to back it up) that she’s just singing about Frank here and in “Bill” (later in the movie).

Also, how beautiful is it possible for one person to be? Cripes.
