Zsa Zsa Gabor had a prolific career, rivaled only by her famous personal life, gaining attention around the world as one of the 20th century's most famous socialites.
She was well known for calling people, "Dahling," and basically being Hollywood's first and only Glamour Queen.
Before moving to the United States, Gabor was crowned "Miss Hungary" in 1936, and then emigrated in 1941. The actress had an incredible career that spanned 40 years, including starring roles in films like the original Moulin Rouge and a role as Minerva in the Adam West Batman TV show.
In memory of the lovely Zsa Zsa Gabor, who sadly passed away earlier today, lets remember her 5 best roles...
Zsa Zsa Gabor played the role of Minerva in the original live-action Batman series in 1968.
In this episode titled Minerva, Mayhem and Millionaires, Minerva runs a health spa in Gotham City. She has been using her Deepest Secret Extractor which is disguised as a piece of spa equipment. With this, she pulls off a number of robberies, until Alfred goes under cover.
Although Batman, Robin, and Batgirl defeated her, Minerva went along quietly as she has plans to start a spa section at the local prison.
Zsa Zsa Gabor starred in the original 1952 Moulin Rouge as Jane Avril.
The real Jane Avril (9 June 1868 – 17 January 1943) was a French can-can dancer made famous by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec through his paintings. Extremely thin, 'given to jerky movements and sudden contortions, she was nicknamed La Mélinite, after an explosive.
Moulin Rouge is set in Paris in the late 19th century, following artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in the city's bohemian sub-culture in and around the burlesque palace, the Moulin Rouge.
A Nightmare On Elm Street 3
There came a time in Zsa Zsa's life that she began playing herself and showing up in some of our favorite movies like A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors from master of horror, Wes Craven.
She appeared in the dream sequence in which a Dick Cavett interview is interrupted by Freddy Krueger, who then does his thing.
Queen Of Outer Space
Queen of Outer Space, which has become a silly sci-fi cult movie, was released in 1958.
Zsa Zsa Gabor played the starring role of Talleah, a beautiful alien who tried to help the captured astronauts overthrow the evil queen.
Capt. Patterson (Eric Fleming) and his space crew (Dave Willock, Patrick Waltz and Paul Birch) crash land on Venus and are captured. They learn the planet is under the dictatorship of cruel Queen Yllana (Laurie Mitchell), a masked woman who has banished men from the planet.
In the palace the astronauts are aided by a beautiful courtier named Talleah (Zsa Zsa Gabor) and her friends (Lisa Davis, Barbara Darrow and Marilyn Buferd). The women long for the love of men again and plot to overthrow the evil queen.
Touch Of Evil
Touch of Evil is a 1958 crime drama film noir, written, directed by, and co-starring Orson Welles.
Zsa Zsa Gabor played the role of a naughty night club owner.
Touch of Evil is one of the last examples of film noir in the genre's classic era (from the early 1940s until the late 1950s). Since its release, the film's reputation has grown in stature, and it is now widely regarded as one of Welles' best films, and also one of the best classic-era films noir.
Touch of Evil is a stark, perverse story of murder, kidnapping, and police corruption in a Mexican border town.
