Scarlet Witch and Ava Gardner

I'm sure we've all read about how much Jack Kirby loved the movies. But had he seen these Ava Gardner images when coming up with the Scarlet Witch's look? Back then movie stars' images weren't as available as they are today. But take a look: tousled chestnut tresses, check. Chiseled bone structure, check. Shapely figure, check. And yeah, even a dimpled chin. 😉
