The most glamorous screen idol of the 40s, the top pin up girl during WWII, the typical product of a male dominated Hollywood was in reality a woman of whom Orson Welles rightly said “she was suffering her whole life”.

Rita Hayworth, a sex symbol or rather a victim of the star system? Julia & Clara Kuperberg follow her life story using rare interview material with Rita Hayworth and many other knowledgable contributors. Clips from films such as Only Angels Have Wings, You'll Never Get Rich, You Were Never Lovelier, Blood and Sand, Gilda, The Lady from Shanghai, The Affair of Trinidad, Salomé, Pal Joey and They Came to Cordura will underpin the filmmakers' findings.
