“Situation Wanted”

Last year I spent most of December celebrating Ava Gardner’s birthday month by singing songs from her films and making videos of myself cooking recipes from her family cookbook. I didn’t get to all of her recipes or songs (in all truthfulness I was not able to find the sheet music), however over the course of this last year I was able to find more sheet music to songs she sang. Recently, I recorded the song “Situation Wanted” from the 1949 film “The Bribe” – an underrated noir film. She was dubbed by Eileen Wilson in the film, but I still think Ava did a great job starring as night club singer Elizabeth Hintten and performing this song in the film. The music is by Nació Herb Brown and lyrics by William Katz. Enjoy!!
