    One of my favorite images of Margarita Carmen Cansino.

      “I was certainly a well-trained dancer. I’m a good actress: I have depth. I have feeling. But they don’t care. All they want is the image.” Rita Hayworth

      Not to hint there isn’t blazing beauty here, but that’s a lot of smoke, maybe some was wafted into set by an obliging prop man?

    I have been speculating, silently and internally, whether I regard Ms Hayworth as having the best figure ever to grace the silver screen.
    I’m not sure I’ve reached a conclusion, but I’d certainly have paid to watch her perform ‘Zip’.

      I think I’ve only seen Gilda once, a video rental, which should date it — and what I remember most were the reactions of the gentlemen I was viewing it with 😉 . So, the movie…so-so…but Rita…was a WOWZER.
