Hungarian-American actress, the youngest of three beautiful, glamorous European imports to Hollywood, with older sisters Magda and Sari (Zsa Zsa). Though the three were much-married and the focus of a great deal of frothy gossip, Eva actually had a long list of film and stage credits, and from 1965 to 1971 co-starred with Eddie Albert in the highly successful TV sitcom, "Green Acres."

Gabor was raised in an upper middle class family with governesses and an education in Fortner Institute in Budapest. From the time she was four she wanted to be an actress. She started classes at 15 but had to quit as her parents thought that acting was too vulgar a vocation.

At 18, she met Dr. Eric Drimmer, a Swedish-American doctor at a party; she married him and moved with him to Hollywood. Speaking only halting English, 5' 2" and 106 lbs, she was nonetheless signed by Paramount. She played in a poor film, "Forced Landing," in 1941 and after one more film, was dropped.

In 1942 Gabor divorced Drimmer and the following year, married millionaire realtor Charles Isaacs; they divorced in 1949. By 1945 her two sisters had joined her along with her mother, Jolie, who had divorced their father.

She played in a string of minor films, TV and plays, with her own TV interview show for a year and a half. During the '50s she and Zsa Zsa were in high profile, both gorgeous women, witty and sophisticated. All three sisters did a nightclub act during 1953 that was not their best idea; Eva herself reported that it was really bad. Jolie and Magda went into business with a jewelry shop in New York. Zsa Zsa was establishing a series of marriages, books and movies, and Eva began to move more solidly into theater. In early 1958 she played in a revival of Noel Coward's "Present Laughter."

On 8 April 1956 she married surgeon John Williams for less than a year, and on 4 October 1959, married New York stockbroker Richard Brown. They divorced in 1973. She married Frank Gard Jameson Sr., an aerospace executive on 21 September 1973. The couple divorced in 1983. Gabor, herself childless, became a stepmother to Jameson's four children.

Gabor died in Los Angeles on 4 July 1995, aged 76, from respiratory failure and pneumonia, following a fall in a bathtub in Mexico, where she had been on vacation.

Source Notes

Dana Haynes quotes her, client, "between 12:00 and 1:00 PM," rectified to 12:24 PM by Haynes. All three Gabor sisters are vague about their ages and some sources give 1926 for Eva, others give 1921.

Sy Scholfield quotes same date in "Those Glamorous Gabors: Bombshells from Budapest" by Darwin Porter (Blood Moon, 2013), pp. 9-10: "[Her mother] partied with friends until midnight of February 10, 1919 . . . At two o'clock as the evening was winding down . . . labor pains set in . . . She was rushed home, where once again, the midwife . . . assisted her during childbirth." No time of birth given in the book, except that it was after 2am and would have been even later "since the doctor who'd been summoned didn't make it on time."
