A new poll question has been posted on the home page and the previous one has been archived. The Links page has also been updated.

August 22, 2005:
I changed the home page poll today and I have archived the previous one, "Rita's exceptional dancing abilities made her a great star in musical films. The studio chose to dub her singing, but Rita precisely lip-synched many memorable tunes. Which is your favorite?" “Put the Blame on Mame,” from Gilda won. The new poll states, "The skilled artists and technicians at Columbia helped young Margarita Cansino become Rita Hayworth, but there were notable instances in her career when craftsmen at other studios aided her in attaining stardom or new acting achievements. Which of Rita’s films away from “home” is your favorite?" As you may have noticed, I changed the home page photos as well.

March 11, 2005:
A new poll went up today and I have archived the previous one, "Which of these major male stars of the 40's would you most like to have seen star opposite Rita Hayworth in her prime?" Clark Gable received 24% of the votes. Cary Grant came in second, with 16%. The new poll states, "Rita's exceptional dancing abilities made her a great star in musical films. The studio chose to dub her singing, but Rita precisely lip-synched many memorable tunes. Which is your favorite?" It was rather difficult for me to choose but I picked the gorgeous "Dearly Beloved," from You Were Never Lovelier. Incidentally, I have always thought that would have been a better title for the film than You Were Never Lovelier. Besides being the more beautiful of the two songs, it fits in perfectly with the film's plot.

December 27, 2004:
I have archived the previous poll, "It may not be your favorite, but which film first made you "love" Rita Hayworth?" It had reached 556 votes. Gilda won with over half the votes, while Cover Girl came in a distant second. The new question is, "Which of these major male stars of the 40's would you most like to have seen star opposite Rita Hayworth in her prime?" Yes, she made Only Angels Have Wings with Cary Grant early in her career, but Jean Arthur was the leading lady. And Fire Down Below with Robert Mitchum came late in her career rather than in her prime, as I've specified..."prime" referring to Rita in the 1940's. I look forward to seeing what you all think! Happy Holidays!

October 22, 2004:
News of the passing of Rita Hayworth's daughter, Rebecca Welles, has been posted in the News Flash section.

September 28, 2004:
I changed the poll question. The old one, "One of Rita's most beloved films is the musical comedy Pal Joey, co-starring Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak. What is your favorite Rita scene from this classic?", having reached 219 votes, has been archived. "The 'Zip' mock strip-tease number" won, and "Sinatra serenading her with 'The Lady is a Tramp'" came second. Don't forget to vote on the new poll, "It may not be your favorite, but which movie first made you "love" Rita Hayworth?"

June 4, 2004:
New news has been added to the News Flash page.

April 18, 2004:
I finally changed the poll question! The old poll, "I promise, no more repeat questions, but since there are so many new visitors since the site opened in 1998, I ask: What is your all-time favorite Rita Hayworth movie?", after reaching 400 votes, has been archived. Naturally Gilda won, scooping up nearly half the votes! The new poll is kind of a repeat, but it's not! There are new choices! It states "Similar question but with new choices. Which of the following roles Rita was either tested for or planned for her, do you most wish she had played?" Also, new news has been added a few times recently and again today!

January 19, 2004:
To all frequent visitors I apologize for not updating in such a long time! Today I changed the poll question. The old poll, "It was of great frustration to Rita that the studio insisted she be dubbed in musical numbers. For her part, she mastered synchronizing her motions with each "vocal ghost" she ever had. Whose voice do you think was best suited to Rita's?", after reaching 182 votes, has been archived. Anita Ellis (Gilda, Down to Earth, The Lady from Shanghai) took 62% of the votes! The new poll states "I promise, no more repeat questions, but since there are so many new visitors since the site opened in 1998, I ask: What is your all-time favorite Rita Hayworth movie?" This will be the first and last repeat question! Additional updates (to the galleries) coming in the near future!

October 26, 2003:
As you may have already noticed, I changed the pictures on the homepage today. I also changed the poll question, finally. The old poll, "Rita never stopped developing as an actress, as evidenced by performances in her later films. Which of these movies is your favorite?", after reaching 250 votes, has been archived. Pal Joey (1957) beat out Separate Tables (1958) by a narrow margin. The new poll states "It was of great frustration to Rita that the studio insisted she be dubbed in musical numbers. For her part, she mastered synchronizing her motions with each "vocal ghost" she ever had. Whose voice do you think was best suited to Rita's?" Because she could carry a tune, the fact that her singing was dubbed always bothered Rita. But as a studio contract actress, she was powerless to change the situation. Though her dubbers changed over the years she truly was a master lip-syncher and it looked very real. Some were better suited to her speaking voice than others however, so which one did you think was best? I think Nan Wynn is my favorite, for her voice, but I think Anita Ellis' singing best matched Rita's own voice, so that's who I voted for. She worked on Gilda, Down to Earth, The Lady from Shanghai. What do all of you think?

September 10, 2003:
Today I added four new pages to the Rita's Golden Movies section. All pre-stardom films, more difficult to locate, so I thought you would appreciate information on them –Under the Pampas Moon (1935), Girls Can Play (1937), The Shadow (1937) and The Renegade Ranger (1938). I have also added news to the Rita News Flash page.

August 29, 2003:
I have changed the poll question on the homepage...finally. The previous one was, "Last time I had you consider classic films. This time, in which of these modern-day blockbusters can you perhaps imagine Rita playing the leading lady?” The results have been archived. "Pretty Woman (1990 -Julia Roberts)" won, and "Moulin Rouge (2001 -Nicole Kidman)" finished second. The new poll says, "Rita never stopped developing as an actress, as evidenced by performances in her later films. Which of these movies is your favorite?" Rita's acting abilities matured as she did as a woman, undoubtedly because she had more to draw from as she grew older. I made "later films" start with Fire Down Below (1957). She made it after a four year absence from the screen and it was the first time she played an "older" woman type (she was actually only in her late 30's). Pal Joey (also 1957) will probably come out on top, but I am anxious to see what everyone picks. My vote goes to Separate Tables, though I adore Pal Joey as well. Check back soon for more updates!

August 13, 2003:
News has been added to the Rita News Flash page.

July 17, 2003:
I have added five new pages to the Rita's Golden Movies section. All pre-superstardom films, more difficult to locate, so I thought you would appreciate information on them –Paddy O’Day (1935), Meet Nero Wolfe (1936), Who Killed Gail Preston? (1938), There’s Always a Woman (1938) and Affectionately Yours (1941). I have also changed the poll question on the homepage. The previous one was "Not to detract from the ladies that acted so marvelously in the parts (some are among my favorites), but which of these classics can you most envision Rita in?” It has been archived. I let it go to 113 votes. "Casablana (1942 –Ingrid Bergman)" won, and "The Postman Always Rings Twice" came second, though after Casablanca, the rest were pretty close. The new poll says, "Last time I had you consider classic films. This time, in which of these modern-day blockbusters can you perhaps imagine Rita playing the leading lady?" I thought I would continue in the same line of thinking, though I think this new one is more difficult to picture than the last poll! It’s hard to imagine, considering the kinds of things that go on in movies these days, but I want you to think more in terms of Rita’s interpretation of the characters from the movie choices. That is to say, I don’t mean for you to picture Rita doing the exact same things as these actresses, but more of what she would have done with the part. I picked Pretty Woman, with Julia Roberts. It’s sort of a “modern-day classic” and I like it, so that’s what I voted for. I’m anxious to see what you all think.

July 5, 2003:
I added a page about The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt to the Rita's Golden Movies page. It was one of her early films, made in 1939, but she has an important role in it.

June 22, 2003:
Additional photos have been posted in Gallery 1 (childhood pictures), 6, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, and 15. I apologize that on the photos of her as a child I have the site address a bit larger than usual. It was done in an effort to keep them somewhat exclusive (though you may have seen them before). They're still enjoyable anyway! In the movie specific galleries, new photos are in You'll Never Get Rich, Tonight and Every Night, Gilda and The Lady from Shanghai. Down to Earth has been split in two with a few new photos added and a separate Fire Down Below Gallery has been created that also contains some new additions. I have also changed the poll question. The previous one, "Whether it be for looks, for the dynamics between them or because you just like the actors, which is your favorite onscreen love triangle involving Rita?" reached 136 votes and has been archived. Naturally "Rita - Glenn Ford - George MacReady: Gilda” won, with " Cary Grant - Jean Arthur - Rita Hayworth: Only Angels Have Wings" in second. The new question is "Not to detract from the ladies that acted so marvelously in the parts (some are among my favorites), but which of these classics can you most envision Rita in?" Quite difficult to say, as they are all pretty well known films. I happened to pick Leave Her to Heaven, a 1945 film that starred Gene Tierney. This does not mean I think she could have done better than Gene; it’s just a role I can see Rita playing. By the way, Leave Her to Heaven is a terrific movie, and Gene was so good in it she was nominated for an Academy Award for “Best Actress.” In some cases the choices are the actress’ signature film, so just choose whichever one you can most imagine Rita playing.

May 26, 2003:
As you've probably already noticed, I changed the pictures on the homepage today. I also added a page about Fire Down Below to the Rita's Golden Movies page. This was the comeback following Rita's second four-year absence from the screen, from 1953 to 1957. I have also changed the poll question on the homepage. The old poll, "At times in Rita's films she lost her 'goddess' cool and exposed a fiery temper. Which is your favorite scene of this kind?", after reaching 160 votes, has been archived. "When she slaps Glenn Ford silly in Gilda" won, and "Inflaming lover Tyrone Power with a torrid dance in Blood and Sand" ranked second. The new question is "Whether it be for looks or for the dynamics between them, which is your favorite onscreen love triangle involving Rita?" This was tough for me to choose because some created great chemistry, some simply looked fabulous together and two or three involve some of my favorite actors. It was the latter that influenced my pick: the Cary Grant - Jean Arthur - Rita Hayworth triangle from Only Angels Have Wings. I love all three of them! Though Rita wasn't exactly "after" Cary in the movie, she was the woman from the past that Jean was leery of, so it qualified as a "love triangle". I'd like to know what the rest of you think so be sure to vote! I also added a few pictures to the Cover Girl gallery the other day.

April 6, 2003:
I ended the poll question, "Which is your favorite romance scene from Rita's films?" and archived the results. Once again the Gilda choice won - "The scene in Gilda's bedroom after the carnival in Gilda". I really thought this time the other movies had a chance! "The garden scene/"I'm Old Fashioned" - You Were Never Lovelier" took off to an early lead but ended up third. Anyway, the new question is the last poll's opposite, "At times in Rita's films she lost her 'goddess' cool and exposed a fiery temper. Which is your favorite scene of this kind?" I chose "Telling off missionary Jose Ferrer in Miss Sadie Thompson". Her performance was wonderful in that film and this scene was so well done! All previous results are on the poll archive page. Don't forget to vote!

March 29, 2003:
Today I added news the Rita News Flash page.

March 8, 2003:
I finally ended the poll question, "Rita's beauty was truly timeless. One of her 1942 releases was You Were Never Lovelier. In which of these films do you feel she really was 'never lovelier'?" after reaching 159 votes (I like to end them at 100). I have archived the results. Gilda won and Cover Girl and You Were Never Lovelier were neck and neck for second and third place, respectively. The new question is, "Which is your favorite romance scene from Rita's films?" Your choices are not musical numbers except for two, since in musicals, love is most often expressed in a song. My pick is "The garden scene/"I'm Old Fashioned" in You Were Never Lovelier," but I'm also very partial to the Parisian rooftop scene with Glenn Ford in The Lady in Question, though I wonder if that choice will receive any votes since it's an early film. Old results are on the poll archive page and the new one is up so don't forget to vote!

February 17, 2003:
Today there have been changes made throughout the photo archives. New additions are in: Gallery 1, 5, 7 and 11. The You'll Never Get Rich Gallery has been split in two with a few new photos added. A separate Blood and Sand Gallery has been made that contains a few new pictures. Also, there have been alot of revisions and changes made throughout the site during the last few weeks that you may come across. Have a nice day!

February 14, 2003:
Happy Valentine's Day to all! Today I ended the poll question, "Rita's musical roots were in Spanish dances. During her heyday in Hollywood they were all the rage. Which Latin-flavored number from her movies is your favorite?". I have archived the results. "The 'Amado Mio' mambo from Gilda won easily and the rest of the votes were pretty evenly divided. "The toreador dance with Anthony Quinn in Blood and Sand" came in second. I put up a new question, "Rita's beauty was truly timeless. One of her 1942 releases was You Were Never Lovelier. In which of these films do you feel she really was 'never lovelier'?" Rita had a kind of beauty that endures and will continue to endure. It was not uniquely "40's", which makes it still be universally admired. In my personal opinion, Rita was at her most breathtaking in Down to Earth. As always, all the old results are on the poll archive page. The new poll is up so don't forget to vote! The next update will be to the photo archives.

December 30, 2002:
Today I added some new pictures throughout the galleries. The ones to receive new additions are: Gallery 1, 3, 5,9, 10, 11, 14, and the You'll Never Get Rich Gallery. I have also opened Gallery 15, which has one new picture in it. The rest of the photos have just been shaken up throughout the galleries, as I always do when I add new pictures, but everything is still there. Enjoy and have a happy new year!

Decemeber 24, 2002:
Today I ended the poll question, "With her unsurpassed dancing abilities, Rita was a natural for musical films. Which of these is your favorite?". I have archived the results. Cover Girl came in first and You Were Never Lovelier in second. I put up a new question, "Rita's musical roots were in Spanish dances. During her heyday in Hollywood they were all the rage. Which Latin-flavored number from her movies is your favorite?" This one was really tough for me but I had to go with "the flamenco routines from The Loves of Carmen" (which were choreographed by her father). Rita had a real passion for this style of dancing and it's very apparent in this film. The numbers are nothing short of spectacular. Anyway, all the old results are on the poll archive page, and the new poll is up and running. Don't forget to vote and I wish you all a very happy holiday season!

December 1, 2002:
I have completely re-done and updated the Rita on Video page so it now includes merchandising links, new releases, DVD's and music. I also remodeled the Books page.

November 27, 2002:
Today I added two new features to the Features Page: Rita's Columbia Pictures family, about the people that brought to life the Rita Hayworth image for the screen, and Rita's Female Co-Stars, which is pretty self-explanatory. I often get comments about the features pages. I think you'll like these. Also, I recently changed the look of the message board slightly and today I changed the picture featured on it, as well as the pictures on the homepage as you've probably already noticed. Thanks for your patience!

November 16, 2002:
Today I ended the poll question, "What is your favorite just prior to super stardom Rita film?". I have archived the results. The Strawberry Blonde won and "other" beat out Only Angels Have Wings for second place by one vote. I put up a new question, "With her unsurpassed dancing abilities, Rita was a natural for musical films. Which of these is your favorite?" I have included both comedies and dramas. This was a really tough one for me but I went You Were Never Lovelier. So, all the old results are on the poll archive page, and the new poll is up and running.

September 3, 2002:
I ended the poll question, "Rita's two films with Fred Astaire, You'll Never Get Rich and You Were Never Lovelier were said to have been her favorites. What's your favorite scene from these 2 films?". I have archived the results. The entire "I'm Old Fashioned" scene from You Were Never Lovelier won and The "Shorty George" number from the same film came in 2nd. I put up a new question, "What is your favorite just prior to super stardom Rita film?" I phrased it that way because I just let you choose from the eight films she made right before her star making turn in Blood and Sand, even though she made many films before then. I started from Only Angels Have Wings because unfortunately, most of the films she made prior to that are not readily available to fans. I didn't know how many of you have seen them, but if you ever get the chance, watch those "B" movies! They are great fun to watch and you feel like you have stumbled onto a hidden treasure! :-) And if any of them are your favorite, you can choose "other". In case any of you wonder how I vote on my own polls, I'll tell you know starting with this one. Here my favorite is definately The Lady in Question. Anyway, all the old results are on the poll archive page, so you can check them out there because the archive page you look at when you vote, in the pop-up window, is incomplete. Well, don't forget to vote on the new poll!

August 22, 2002:
Today I added just a few new pictures in the galleries to fill out some of the ones that were uneven in the last rows. The ones to receive new pictures are: Gallery 6, Gallery 9, the You'll Never Get Rich Gallery, the Cover Girl gallery and the Tonight and Every Night Gallery.

August 18, 2002:
Today I added a new feature to the Features Page. It is an exclusive four part interview with the author of the latest book written about Rita, Caren Roberts-Frenzel: Click here to read the interview

July 19, 2002:
Lots of changes and additions to the galleries! I'll start off by saying I changed all the banners for the galleries because I decided the old ones were way too big. That said, there are a ton of new pictures throughout the galleries (to make up for not adding any in so long). I usually give a run through of where to find new pictures but it would take way too long so it will suffice to say that there are new pictures in every gallery except for Gallery 5 and the Angels Over Broadway gallery. You will find at least one new picture in every other gallery though. Anyway, the other changes are: Gallery 14 was added, the Gilda gallery was split into two parts, and so was the Cover Girl gallery and finally, the old "Movie Images" gallery was separated, so now Music In My Heart and Angels Over Broadway have their own individual galleries. You've also probably noticed already that I changed both pictures of Rita on the homepage. I also reworded a few things. Hope you like my choices and enjoy the new pictures!

July 12, 2002:
Today I updated the Rita News Flash page. The Links page has also been updated so there's no broken links, but I plan to re-vamp the entire page soon anyway. (If you ever do find any, please tell me.)

July 3, 2002:
Today I added a page about Susan and God to the Rita's Golden Movies page. It was one of her first appearances in a major "A" film and she made the most of her supporting role.

June 26, 2002:
Today I added a page about Convicted to the Rita's Golden Movies page. It's one of her early Columbia "quickies" that's kind of hard to find so I decided to tell you all about it. It was filmed in 1937 and released the following year. Today I also ended the poll question, "Rita had the best designers creating the best gowns for her films. Choose your favorite set of Hayworth fashions." The question got alot of response from the fans and was ended at 163 votes. I archived the results of it. "The Jean Louis genious of Gilda won by a landslide as I had figured it would, with 41% of the votes, and in a far away second place was Irene's You Were Never Lovelier gowns with 15%. You can see the rest of the results in the Poll Achive page. I put up a new poll question that asks, "Rita's two films with Fred Astaire, You'll Never Get Rich and You Were Never Lovelier were said to have been her favorites. What's your favorite scene from these 2 films?" Don't forget to vote and come back soon for new pictures that will be added shortly! :-)

May 9, 2002:
I recently remodeled the 3 biography pages a bit. I changed the color scheme and changed around some of the pictures of Rita throughout the pages. I also added a few bits of information here and there to the actual biography.

April 29, 2002:
I accidentally ended the last poll a week ago and haven't been able to post a new one until now! Sorry for the delay! But it's all okay now because not only was I able to archive the last poll and post a new one today, I finally updated the Features page! And the new poll question is in connection with the new "feature", but I'll talk more about that in a minute. About the last poll, the question was, "Rita was one of many pin-up favorites during World War II. Besides her, who is your favorite war-time glamour girl?". To my utter amazement, "none" received the most votes- 34%! So 34% of Rita fans are only "Rita fans"? I'm guessing the outcome might have been different if I had put Marilyn Monroe or Bette Davis, etc., but I wanted it to be about actresses who were really Rita's contemporaries, same kind of star, same time. Anyway, besides "no one", Betty Grable got the most votes, and Gene Tierney trailed her by just one vote. Good choices, they're my two favorites of the ones I had you choose from too. Anyway, back to the Features update. Now "The Rita Hayworth Fashion Page" has been featured on this site for years now, but the other day I was looking at it and thought it was really bad! So, it's been completely re-designed and expanded to at least 3 times it's old size. The NEW Rita Hayworth Fashion Page is 3 pages packed with photos and information that you must not miss. The second and third parts were really one page split in half to reduce loading time, called Jean Louis and Rita Hayworth: A Master and His Muse, they are dedicated to the 10 Rita films Jean Louis worked on. The first of the 3 pages is dedicated to some of her other films and her off-screen and early career fashions. The pages turned out beautifully if I do say so myself and are among the ones I'm proudest of so you must have a look. About the new poll- it says, "Rita had the best designers creating the best gowns for her films. Choose your favorite set of Hayworth fashions." Look through the new fashion pages to help you decide.

March 17, 2002:
Today I finally ended the poll question, "Other than Glenn Ford in Gilda, who do you think had the most chemistry with Rita onscreen?". It was at 126 votes. I archived the results of it. Fred Astaire won for his screen igniting chemistry with Rita in You Were Never Lovelier and Tyrone Power came in 2nd for their pairing in Blood and Sand. I put up a new poll question that says, "Rita was one of many pin-up favorites during World War II. Besides her, who is your favorite war-time glamour girl?" I was curious as to which of Rita's contemporaries you guys like. Of course I couldn't include everyone I wanted to, like Ava Gardner who was a popular pin-up girl of the time but more a 50's star than a 40's star, or Marlene Dietrich who was definitely one of the greatest contributers to the war effort, having spent most of the war years on the front lines in Europe entertaing the troops, but she's not as distinctly a 40's star as the others I included in the poll. Anyway, you can still see all the old poll results on the poll archive page. By the way, I know I haven't done a "real" update in a long time but fear not- I will be adding some exciting new additions to the site in the near future- some pictures, an interview and a few other things. I've actually been working on another site I am creating- about another of my favorite actresses! It's not quite done yet but I hope you'll all like it. Anyway, don't forget to vote on the new Rita poll and look for some new updates in about a week. :-)

January 20, 2002:
Some of you may have noticed the old poll question was no longer working. Right as the poll was about to finish the server that provided the it underwent changes and without notice they just shut down the poll. Unfortunately I don't really remember how it was going. There were 93 votes on it though. The question was "Most fans either love or hate The Lady from Shanghai. To those who love it, what is your favorite scene or aspect of the film?" "Rita singing 'Please Don't Kiss Me'" won by a landslide but I'm not sure what the rest of the results were like. I remember the rest of the choices were pretty close, the hall of mirrors scene, Rita's new look, her pairing with Orson and the costumes all did well. Anyway, the good news is that a new poll is now up and running on the homepage so be sure to vote on it. The question is "Other than Glenn Ford in Gilda, who do you think had the most chemistry with Rita onscreen?" There are 10 choices and I know some of you will think I'm leaving some people out but since I can't include everyone I just put the 10 co-stars I think she had the most chemistry with.

January 3, 2002:
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a great time over the holidays! Well, I've updated the most popular section of this site, the galleries! As always, the new pictures are all throughout the galleries. There's 3 in Gallery 1, 1 in Gallery 4, 2 in Gallery 5, 4 in Gallery 6, 1 in Gallery 8, 2 in Gallery 9 and 4 in Gallery 12. Also there is 1 new photo in the Down to Earth gallery, 1 in the The Lady from Shanghai gallery and 1 in the You'll Never Get Rich gallery. Also, before there used to be a "Movie Images 2" gallery with pictures from You Were Never Lovelier and Tonight and Every Night. I added new pictures to both sections so I just made them separate galleries: 1 new in the You Were Never Lovelier gallery and 3 in the new Tonight and Every Night gallery. Also, I have a new scanner now that scans images with much better quality than my old one so I rescanned alot of the color pictures so they look alot better now. I plan to rescan alot of the galleries pictures little by little. Well, that's all for this update. Enjoy them and happy new year!

November 27, 2001:
Sorry for taking so long to update this time! I had more computer/scanner/photo editor problems than I care to think about. Anyway I added some new pictures throughout the galleries. There's 1 in Gallery 1, 3 in Gallery 5, 2 in Gallery 8, 2 in Gallery 9, 1 in Gallery 11 and 1 in Gallery 12. Also there are 3 new photos in the Cover Girl gallery, 3 in the The Lady from Shanghai gallery, 2 in the You'll Never Get Rich gallery, 2 in the Affair In Trinidad gallery, and 1 in the Gilda Gallery. 21 I think, all together. In case you've ever wondered why I don't just lump all the new pictures together in one spot it's because the galleries are loosely (very loosely) in chronological order. Some are a little mixed around but I try to avoid doing that when there's room and it'll fit in with the design of the page. Anyway, I also added a page about The Story On Page One to the Rita's Golden Movies page. It's a courtroom drama Rita starred in that was released in 1960. I have alot of ideas for some changes throughout the site so you can look for them in the near future. For now, enjoy the updates!

October 18, 2001:
Today my poll question, "None of these actors ever starred in a film with Rita. Some of are from her time, some not. If you could star a young Rita opposite any of them in whatever period each is from, which would you choose?" reached 114 votes, so I archived the results of it. Clark Gable won, with 25% of the votes. William Holden came in 2nd place with 19%. I put up a new poll question, "Most fans either love or hate The Lady from Shanghai. To those who love it, what is your favorite scene or aspect of the film?" So, the new poll is up and running so be sure to check out the results for the last poll and submit your vote for the new one.

August 21, 2001:
Not much today, I just changed the pictures on the homepage and created new banners. One has replaced the old banner at the bottom of the homepage and there are others on the Links page. So those of you who want to link to this site can use one of those banners. I made a few because I couldn't decide what pictures to use, so just pick your favorite. I also moved around the books page a little.

August 9, 2001:
Today my poll question, "Of course there'll never be another Rita Hayworth (not even close)- but which of these modern-day movie stars comes the closest to reminding you of Rita (whether it be for looks, style or anything)?" reached 126 votes (I'm late!!!) so I archived the results of it. Catherine Zeta-Jones won by a landslide, receiving 55% of the votes (there were 8 choices!). The rest of the votes were more evenly divided, with Ashley Judd in 2nd place with 14%. Anyway, I put up a new poll question, "None of these actors ever starred in a film with Rita. Some of are from her time, some not. If you could star a young Rita opposite any of them in whatever period each is from, which would you choose?" You can vote for anyone from Charlie Chaplin to Brad Pitt! So, the new poll is up and running so be sure to check out the results for the last poll and submit your vote for the new one.

July 23, 2001:
Major update today- some 60 photos have been added to the galleries! First of all, the whole Galleries page has gotten a complete face lift- new color scheme and I created banners for each gallery instead of just having one photo represent each gallery as it was before. The regular (non-movie related) galleries have also gotten a new color scheme. As for the new photo- there are 2 new pictures in Gallery #1, 1 in Gallery #3, 4 in Gallery #5, 4 in Gallery #7, 5 in Gallery #8, and 2 in Gallery #9. I also added galleries 10, 11 and 12. There are 5 new pictures in Gallery #10, 4 in Gallery #11 and 7 in Gallery #12. As for the movie galleries- There are 5 new photos in the Movie Images 2 gallery, 2 in the You'll Never Get Rich Gallery, 4 in the Cover Girl Gallery, 2 in the Gilda Gallery, 4 in the Down to Earth Gallery, 3 in The Lady from Shanghai gallery and 2 in the Affair In Trinidad gallery. Suffice it to say- new pictures are everywhere. I hope you enjoy them all!

June 19, 2001:
I'm so sorry I've neglected my site for nearly two months! ;-) Anyway, I finally got some free time so today I finally changed the poll question, "Which of these would you choose for the big picture on the homepage of this site?" I said it'd be a two week poll but it ended up being more like two months (oops!). It reached 135 votes. I archived the results of it. The picture you guys chose for the homepage has been put up, as you've probably noticed already, it's from her famous "pin-up" photo session for Life magazine. I also changed the smaller picture on the homepage to a publicity shot of her from 1945. I put up a new poll question, "Of course there'll never be another Rita Hayworth! (not even close)...but which of these modern-day movie stars comes closest to reminding you of Rita (whether it be for looks, style or anything)?" I know this is a hard question folks, actually I don't think anyone today comes close to Rita, but perhaps I'm biased? Anyway, to be honest with you I just couldn't think of anything else for the poll question. I put together a page with pictures and information about the choices I gave you: The new Rita's??? (well, they can try). Bear in mind this question is not "who looks the most like Rita?", choose the person you think best fills Rita's shoes in today's Hollywood. I also added this page to the features page. Anyway, the new poll is up and running so be sure to check out the results for the last poll and submit your vote for the new one. I also updated the Rita Hayworth News Flash page today with some very exciting Rita news!

April 30, 2001:
Today I updated the Rita News Flash page with information about Pal Joey coming the big screen in Los Angeles!

April 22, 2001:
Today my poll question, "The following are roles offered to Rita which were eventually never made or made with another female lead. Which of these roles do you most wish Rita had played?" reached 116 votes (I'm late!!!) so I archived the results of it. The role of Karen in From Here to Eternity is the unrealized Rita role most people wish she had made and the role of Laura in Laura came in 2nd. I put up a new poll question, "Which of these would you choose for the big picture on the homepage of this site?" So I'm basically asking which is your favorite photo. This is a special, temporary question and it will only be up for two weeks. I put together a page and gave you 10 pictures to choose from. The photo that gets the most votes gets put on the homepage of the site. So you can see your choices by clicking here. The new poll is up and running so be sure to check out the results for the last poll and submit your vote for the new one!!!

March 29, 2001:
I'm really having trouble keeping a mesage board! The first one I made got deleted for some unknown reason. Then I made a new one and the server decided to shut down all the message boards. So, I have created another new one. This time at Bravenet. I reposted all the old messages so that's why it says that all the messages were posted on the same day. I hope all who have posted before will post again. The Rita Hayworth Message Board. I hope you'll all enjoy it!

February 20, 2001:
Today I added some sad news concerning Rita to the Rita Hayworth News page.

February 6, 2001:
Today's update is a page about the movie, The Rover. This is one of Rita's last films, an Italian production also known as L'Avventuriero. It co-stars Rita with Anthony Quinn and Italian beauty Rosanna Schiaffino. The page has been added to the Rita's Golden Movies page.

January 21, 2001:
Today I changed the biography pages a lot. I changed a few of the pictures, made a few corrections and added a lot of interesting information throughout. Not much in "The Early Years but there's new information in "The Middle Years" and "The Later Years". I want to apologize for the loading of the pages, well, really just the "Middle Years" page. I tried to eliminate some pictures so the page would load quicker but I felt every picture on the page was absolutely necessary. Well actually, my computer loads the page pretty quickly. I guess it all depends on the computer you're using but if it takes a long time to load I'm sorry! But do check the pages out, I think they turned out well. Also, today this site has reached a new level of efficiency, I added a search engine to the site. It gives results only from this site so you'll be able to find exactly what you're looking for if it's on the site. Here's a page I made for it: Search this site.

January 15, 2001:
I added many more pictures to the galleries. There is 1 new photo in Gallery #1, 1 in Gallery #4, 3 in Gallery #7, 10 in Gallery #8, and 3 in Gallery #9. There is also 1 new photo in the Cover Girl gallery, 3 in the Gilda Gallery, 4 in the Down to Earth Gallery, 1 in The Lady from Shanghai gallery and 1 in the Affair In Trinidad gallery. Also, there's 1 new picture in the Angels Over Broadway section of the Rita Movie Images 1 gallery. The Lady from Shanghai gallery, which has 7 new photos. Also, those of you have been been to this site before have probably already noticed I changed the small Rita Hayworth picture under the big picture on the homepage. It's a publicty shot taken of Rita to publicize Down to Earth.

January 4, 2001:
Today I added pages about 2 of Rita's movies. The first is Dante's Inferno, in which Rita makes her official feature film debut. The second is The Strawberry Blonde with James Cagney and Olivia DeHavilland. It's on of the films that lead to Rita's stardom. These pages have been added to the Rita's Golden Movies page. I also re-vamped the Down to Earth page. (It's just has a new background and slightly different look).

December 9, 2000:
Two small updates today. First, I updated any outdated links on the links page and deleted any sites that are no longer available. Also, I have no idea why, but the server deleted the message board I had made for the site...so I created a new one today...unfortunately all the old posts were deleted too...so I hope all you had posted before will post again. The Rita Hayworth Message Board is just a forum for fans to talk about Rita's life and career. I hope you'll all enjoy it! If your messages don't appear right away, don't worry, they will soon.

November 22, 2000:
Today my poll question, "Which of these is your favorite Rita Hayworth look?" reached 108 votes (I'm late! My poll runneth over!!) so I archived the results of it. I was very surprised by the results. It was very close the whole time. "Rita's natural, candid look" won by 1 vote, very interesting, it beat "Gilda's cool sophistication", anything with Gilda in it has won every past poll question. Well, this is one time we can say that the real Rita finally beat "the image". Also interesting is the fact that "Rita's lovely Latin Bombshell look" was in first place for a while there, the look Columbia Pictures decided was not marketable. Anyway, the top three choices were only 1 vote apart. I'm glad more people voted this time! I put up a new poll question that I hope will be as successful as the last, the poll says, "These are all roles offered to Rita which were either never made or made with another actress. Which of these roles do you most wish Rita had played?" I also put together a page so you can read all about your choices, Rita's unrealized films. I made this new page part of the Features page and added a link to it under the new poll on the homepage. Anyway, the new poll is up and running so be sure to check out the results for the last poll and submit your vote for the new one!!!

November 12, 2000:
Today's update is a page about the movie, Tales of Manhattan. This all-star cast movie contains about 15 big stars of the day including Rita, Ginger Rogers, Henry Fonda and many more. It's been added to the Rita's Golden Movies page. I also updated the Rita News Flash page with my latest Rita news.

October 19, 2000:
I know I'm 2 days late with this but since Rita's 81st birthday was on the 17th I wanted to update the site. I finished the update today. I added tons of pictures to the galleries. There are 2 new photos in Gallery #1, 3 in Gallery #2, 1 in Gallery #3, 1 in Gallery #4, 2 in Gallery #5, 4 in Gallery #7 and 8 in Gallery #8. Also, I had to add Gallery #9, which has 1 new photo in it. There are also 2 new photos in the Cover Girl gallery, 2 in the Gilda Gallery, 1 in the Down to Earth Gallery, and 1 in The Lady from Shanghai gallery. Also, there are a few more major changes to the galleries. I completely deleted the Rita Silver Screen Images gallery, which had pictures from Tonight and Every Night and Affair In Trinidad. Now I've made a separate Affair In Trinidad gallery, which has 1 new photo in it and I took the Tonight and Every Night pictures and put them into the Rita Movie Images gallery #2 with pictures from You Were Never Lovelier. In that gallery there are 2 new pictures in the You Were Never Lovelier section and 1 in the Tonight and Every Night section. Rita Movie Images gallery #2 used to have You'll Never Get Rich pictures in it also but I took those out and made a separate You'll Never Get Rich gallery, which has 3 new photos in it. So basically, I just put my You Were Never Lovelier and Tonight and Every Night photos into one gallery and gave You'll Never Get Rich and Affair In Trinidad their own galleries. I think I wrote too much and made this all a bit confusing. :-) But, to put it simply, there are new Rita pictures all over the galleries. I know you'll all like them!

September 30, 2000:

September 14, 2000:
Today my poll question, "What's your favorite scene in the movie Cover Girl?" reached 100 votes so I archived the results of it. The make-over for the Vanity cover scene won with the scene where Rusty first interviews for the modeling job in 2nd place. I put up a new poll, the new question is, "Which of these is your favorite Rita Hayworth look?" I also put together a page so you can see what your choices are, Some of Rita's looks. I made this new page part of the Features page and added a link to it under the new poll on the homepage. Anyway, the new poll is up and running so be sure to check out the results for the last poll and submit your vote for the new one!!!

September 6, 2000:

Also, to fit the new pictures I had to create two additional galleries, Photo Gallery #8, which has 5 new photos. The other new gallery is The Lady from Shanghai gallery, which has 7 new photos. Also, those of you have been been to this site before have probably already noticed I changed the background of the homepage of this site as well as the small Rita Hayworth picture under the big picture on the homepage. It's a publicty shot taken of Rita in 1945. Also, there are a few, minor changes on the Gilda page. Hope you enjoy all the new pictures!

Also I've created a new movie images gallery containing photos from 2 of Rita's pre-stardom films, Music in My Heart and Angels Over Broadway, the new gallery is called Rita Movie Images Gallery #1. This new gallery has 5 new photos in the Angels Over Broadway section. It's the "prequel" of Rita Movie Images Gallery #2 which has pictures from You'll Never Get Rich and You Were Never Lovelier.

In keeping with the "What's your favorite scene in..." poll I started last time, the new poll question is, "What's your favorite scene in the movie Cover Girl?", I chose Cover Girl this time because many of the fans I've talked to say Cover Girl is their second favorite Rita Hayworth movie, after Gilda.

I've also made the Tonight and Every Night pictures part of the Rita Screen Images Gallery with 1 new picture from that movie in it.

Also, I put the pictures from The Lady from Shanghai in the Rita Screen Images gallery, so now that gallery has pictures from Down to Earth, The Lady from Shanghai and Affair In Trinidad. And finally, to reduce loading time and because I needed more room I've added a Photo Gallery #5 that has 1 new photo of Rita in it. Hope you enjoy seeing all the new pictures!

Today I made Rita Quiz #2. I made it because I think quiz #1 was a little too easy. This new quiz has questions that are a bit tougher. Try it out and see how you do!!! I also added a "Did You Know...?" section to the Rita Hayworth FAQs page that will give the answers to some of the tougher questions of the new quiz. But first try taking the quiz without reading the "Did You Know..." section!
