What gives with this lady anyway?

She was the only one for Frank Sinatra despite all the better looking women he dated.  So obssessed with her, he wrote a song I'm a fool to want you.   Well he probably wrote the lyrics.  Someone else did the music.  Frank was known for singing, not song writing.  Anyway she was "pretty" but not drop dead gorgeous.  Great song by the way.

 

Here they are preparing for their wedding.  From Lost in History.  A women a man carried a torch for.  Poor guy.  Little did he know....

I can see the photo just fine and I still don’t know who you’re talking about. That woman is not someone I recognize. Is she still alive? Frank Sinatra died 20 years ago. Is this mystery woman  relevant to anything happening today?

I don't understand what you are saying, but if you are questioning Ava Gardner's looks, you need to have your eyes examined.  That said, do you truly feel that only the drop dead gorgeous are worthy of love?  And, by the way, Frank never won any beauty awards.

Ah, Ava Gardner.  Aside from the merits (or lack thereof) of the Ava-Frank pairing, I find her to be stunningly beautiful.  To me she has a vivid, one-of-a-kind presence on screen.

Yep.  She was supposed be very beautiful. He carried a torch for all his life.  Sad.  She broke his heart.  I don't see the obsession.  She looks like an average women.  Nothing special...

Didn't she die of Alzheimer's?  Or am I thinking of some other movie star he was involved with?

He was a skinny little guy - don't know what she saw in him
