Rita Hayworth looks at Jean Louis costume design sketches, 1944
Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford on break from filming Gilda, 1946
Rita laughs gaily on the set of Cover Girl (1944), a Columbia musical with Gene Kelly, Phil Silvers, and Lee Bowman, which began shooting during Rita’s romance with Orson Welles. Orson occasionally visited the set, and it was obvious to all that the couple were madly in love. Rita’s happiness transferred onto the screen, and she was at her most spirited and lovely in this charming film.
