About Rita Hayworth

Rita Hayworth (October 17, 1918 - May 14, 1987) lived a life that played out like a spectacular movie. She was a Spanish dancer who transcended cultural stereotyping to become a great American movie star, a producer of her own films, a princess, a loving mother of two, and a style icon. Rita Hayworth's name conjures up the glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age, the victory of WWII, and the smoldering magnetism that made her the most famous and publicized woman of her era. The greatest indication of Hayworth's still potent powers as a love goddess may be the millions of dollars raised every year in her memory to fight Alzheimer's disease, the illness that tragically claimed her life in 1987.
