Gabor got her big break in the 1952 film “Moulin Rouge,” in which she earned critical praise for her portrayal of Jane Avril. In the decades to come, she would appear in scores of films, TV shows and talk shows, often portraying femme fatales or exaggerated versions of herself.

Born Sari Gabor in Hungary, she was nicknamed Zsa Zsa by her family. A Californian for nearly 50 years, Gabor never lost her signature accent or aristocratic European tendencies, and called almost everyone “dahlink.”
