Eva Bartok (18 June 1927 - 1 August 1998), was an actress born in Budapest, Hungary as Éva Márta Szőke Ivanovics. She began acting in films in 1950 and her last credited appearance was in 1966. She is best known for appearances in Blood and Black Lace, The Crimson Pirate, Operation Amsterdam, and Ten Thousand Bedrooms.
During World War II, a teenaged Bartok, the daughter of a Jewish father and a Catholic mother, was forced to marry Hungarian Nazi officer Géza Kovács; the marriage was annulled after the war on the grounds of coercion of a minor. She had four other marriages, all of which ended in divorce, including her final marriage, to actor Curd Jürgens (1955-56). Her daughter Deana was born in 1957, shortly after the marriage to Jürgens ended. Three decades later, Bartok claimed Deana's biological father was actually Frank Sinatra, with whom she had a brief affair in 1956.
During the 1950s, Bartok reportedly suffered from ovarian cancer but experienced an allegedly miraculous recovery after being spiritually "opened" into Subud. She died on 1 August 1998 in London.
