Éva Gábor

Eva Gabor (February 11, 1919–July 4, 1995) was a Hungarian born actress. With the original Hungarian diacritics her name is Éva Gábor.

Eva was born in Budapest, Hungary, the daughter of Vilmos Gabor and Jansci Tilleman (or Jolie Gabor). Her elder sisters are Magda Gabor and Zsa Zsa Gabor, who came to the U.S. AFTER her, and outlived her, despite her being the youngest sister. Gabor's maternal family was Jewish and her maternal grandparents died in the Holocaust. Biographers speculate that her paternal family were originally Jewish as well, but converted to Catholicism in order to assimilate, although this has not been confirmed.

Her first movie was Forest Landing (1941) at Paramount Pictures. She acted in movies throughout the 1950s; in the 1960s, she appeared in her well known TV role on the sitcom Green Acres, in which she portrayed Lisa Douglas, a New York wife living on a farm.

In later years, she was involved in some animated Disney movies, providing the voice of Duchess in The Aristocats and the voice of Miss Bianca in The Rescuers and its sequel, The Rescuers Down Under.

Like her older sister Zsa Zsa, Éva was known for her string of marriages, but Eva was a successful businesswoman as well. Zsa Zsa had nine husbands, and Eva had five husbands:

  1. 1939–1942 Erik Drimmer, Swedish physician
  2. 1943–1950 Charles Isaacs
  3. 1956–1956 John Williams, American physician
  4. 1959–1972 Richard Brown
  5. 1973–1983 Frank Jameson

Eva Gabor died at the age of 76 in Los Angeles of respiratory failure after suffering from food poisoning. She is interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Westwood, California.
