She is also another old Hollywood star that married a prince although that marriage didn't work out.
i have that box set and those are my faves as well - i just love the long ago and far away scene in cover girl

I was reading a biography on her that said that she was extremely insecure about herself and she had to have a lot of work on her to get her to be as beautiful as she was. If I remember right her father was very bad to her and molested her which resulted in her always needing a domeneering man in her life, which is why she had such bad marriages.

But she is really a lovely woman despite those things.
I haven't seen any of her movies all thoguh i would like to, can anyone recomment any really good ones. I have been wanting to see Gilda for a while but havn't yet.

My favorite picture of her.

And my version of it.


Also a quote from her.

"After all, a girl is - well, a girl. It's nice to
be told you're successful at it."
:::Rita Hayworth:::

One of my favorite classic Hollywood actresses. I've only seen one of her movies from when she was older but she was still beautiful in it. I always saw a resemblance between her and a young Marilyn Monroe, another fav of mine.

Nice drawing.

The only "work" that Rita Hayworth had done on her was getting her black hair dyed red and her hairline raised by (painful) electrolysis. This was initiated by the studio heads rather than by Rita herself. Other than she is all natural. I have heard, however, that she wasn't all that confident. One quote from her sums it up nicely: "Men go to bed with Gilda, but wake up with me."

Some trivia: the character of Maria Vargas (played by Ava Gardner, the woman in my avatar) in the film The Barefoot Contessa (1954) was based on Rita Hayworth.

Some good Rita movies to start off with are:
Cover Girl (1944)
Gilda (1946)
The Lady From Shanghai (1947)

That is exactely what I read, I didn't mean to make it sound like she is totaly fake. I know she had a extreme widows peak and they had to fix that. But yes that is what I read.

Thank you for your help and compliment.

I agree that she was a great dancer. I would have liked to have seen her in more musicals.

How many musicals was she in? So far, I've seen her in Cover Girl and Pal Joey. In Pal Joey, she didn't dance much...I want to see her dance !

The only other musicals I've ever seen apart from the ones you mentioned keroppi are You Were Never Lovelier and You'll Never Get Rich. Another musical Rita Hayworth is in is Tonight and Every Night but I haven't seen it yet.
