Ernest Hemingway’s famous short story called “The Snows Of Kiliminjaro,” a modern classic, is a fable pointing to man’s primary purpose as the seeking of the unobtainable. The movie of the same name, although billed as by Hemingway, owes little to his plot and less to his theme. A successful pot-boiling author (Gregory Peck) is first shown dying of blood-poisoning on the African veldt below Kiliminjaro. awaiting the arrival of a rescue party while his wealthy wife (Susan Hayward) does her best to get him well. In flashback form, he recalls his past. These memories contain some stunning scenes, some stunning women (Ava Gardner. Helene Stanley. Ava Norring. Hildegarde Neff). But none of them make much sense or helps explain what makes him tick. Modern Screen (Dec 1952-Nov 1953).

Ava Norring, a Hungarian-born actress [benefitted from] the protective (and at times smothering) embrace of the old studio system that had “discovered” Norring in a Look magazine photo and set her up in Hollywood. “Everything was easy for me,” Norring recalls. “The studio took care of everything—they found me a place to live and took me where I wanted to go. I never had to do anything.” But during the few years Norring left for New York to spend time raising her children, that system vanished. When Norring, who had made only three pictures, tried to work again, she found the door was closed to her. … Today she resides at the Motion Picture and Television Fund’s retirement home for actors and other Hollywood professionals. Norring has a pleasant room with a patio overlooking rolling lawns.  Los Angeles Magazine.

Motion Picture Home to remain open, admit new residents: Three years after a controversial decision to close Hollywood’s best-known nursing home, the Motion Picture & Television Fund has reversed course and said it would immediately begin admitting new residents to the historic Woodland Hills facility. “It’s been a long wait, but I couldn’t be happier,” said Hungarian-born actress Ava Bliss, an 87-year-old resident of the home whose credits under the name Ava Norring include the 1952 film “The Snows of Kilimanjaro.” “It means that I don’t have to worry any more about whether I have to leave tomorrow or the week after.” LA Times.
