October 17, 1918 – May 14, 1987

Actress, dancer and all-around bombshell, Rita Hayworth, captivated Hollywood audiences throughout the 1940s and ’50s. Glamorous and talented, she was the quintessential Golden-era beauty. Her personal life was quite public and tremendously busy.  She once quipped that men “fell in love with [her iconic character] Gilda, but they wake up with me.”  She was married five times, including to actor/director Orson Welles and Prince Aly Khan.  Rita struggled with alcohol most of her life. She died from complications from Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 68.
