Eddy Judson

When they first met Rita was making pictures under the name of Rita Cansino. Eddy became her manager and started getting jobs for her at almost every studio in a string of low-budget "B" movies to get the attention of studio heads. Because he had helped her so much in her career Rita thought he loved her so on November 17, 1937 Rita Hayworth became the third Mrs. Edward C. Judson. He was 44. She was 19. Sadly, as the story goes, he turned out to be doing it all, not out of love for Rita but so he could collect the money from it. Apparently, he was confescating the money she earned but even though he collected all the money, he was making Rita's name alot better known. Soon after they were married Eddy got her a contract with Harry Cohn at Columbia Pictures where she was transformed from Rita Cansino to Rita Hayworth and became a major star. By 1942 however, Rita finally filed for a divorce from Eddy and on March 24, 1942 it was finalized.

Orson Welles

The story goes that Orson Welles saw Rita Hayworth on the cover of Life magazine and fell in love instantly. Supposedly it was true. After that he went around telling the the world he was going to marry Rita. It was seen as a sort of obsession with him. It was as if he had to have her. Finally, the charming Welles swept her off her feet won her over. Between takes on Rita's latest movie, Cover Girl, on June 26, 1943 they were wed. She regarded him as a genius and was sort of in awe of him. They were two of the biggest stars in movies at the time so the Hollywood press made them one of our most famous Hollywood couples. On September 17, 1944 Welles and Hayworth became the parents of Rita's first daughter, Rebecca Welles. There were difficulties in the marriage from the beginning however and by the time Orson had written the script of The Lady From Shanghai for Rita had already filed for divorce from him. She starred in the movie opposite him but soon after, on December 1, 1948 the divorce was finalized. Of her marriage to Orson Rita said, "I admire him greatly. We just don't get along"

Prince Aly Khan

Rita was still married to Orson Welles when she first started seeing the celebrated playboy, Prince Aly Khan. In the beginning their romance caused a scandel because he too was married. They were seen everywhere together and columnists followed every move they made. Rita obtained a divorce from Welles and soon after, on May 27, 1949 she and Prince Aly Khan were married in Chateau de L'Horizon, France. Their marriage made Rita the first movie star to become a princess. She left Hollywood to live in Europe with her prince, daughter Rebecca and new-born child, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, born on December 28, 1949. The press called it "The Romance of the Century" and even made a movie, titled Champagne Safari, about Prince Aly and Rita's second honeymoon in Africa. Sadly, there marriage wasn't as happy as it was made out to be and Rita moved back to Hollywood with her daughters. The press now said "It looks like 'The Romance of the Century' is going to be 'The Divorce of the Decade'." In early 1953 Rita obtained a divorce from her husband of less than four years, Prince Aly Khan. However, their daughter, Princess Yasmin, said many years later, in an article in a magazine, "There were always good feelings between them, and although their marriage didn't work, theirs was a truly good relationship."

Dick Haymes

Rita became involved with actor/singer Dick Haymes in 1953 between the filming of Salome and Miss Sadie Thompson. So when Rita was on location in Hawaii, during the production of Miss Sadie Thompson, Haymes went to visit her. While there, it was discovered that Haymes was not a U. S. citizen (he was born in Argentina) and because of the McCarran Act, which stated that any non-U. S. citizen who was working in U. S. and left America without government permission would be deported upon return to the U. S., he could not go back. He had gone to Hawaii, which was not yet part of the United States but it was an American posession so there was a big legal situation about whether he should be allowed back into America again. So they allowed him back until they could decide what to do with him. Finally, after many court appearances it was decided he would be allowed to stay. Through the entire ordeal Rita was loyal to Haymes and stuck by him. So in Las Vegas, on September 24, 1953 Rita and Dick were married. For both the bride and groom it was marriage number four. Not long after their wedding however, rumors surfaced that Haymes was physically abusive toward Rita on many occasions. After less than two years of being husband and wife, in late 1955, their marriage ended in divorce.

James Hill

They were married on February 2, 1958. In the beginning theirs was a loving, caring relationship but after a while it turned into something of a drinking partnership. He saw in her a true comedic talent and became set on the idea that she could become a great comedienne. At this point in her life Rita just wanted to retire from filmwork and paint. His parents were even on her side and they tried to talk James out of his need to see her in comedies. It didn't work. He wanted to her to remain in films and realize his dream of seeing her as the world's most beautiful comedienne. He talked her into finishing Separate Tables, she made They Came to Cordura so they could buy a house, he talked her into doing The Story on Page One because it was supposed to be her debut as a great comedienne. But the script didn't work out. She made The Happy Theives but right after it finished it's location filming in Madrid, Spain Rita filed for their divorce.
