's review

really liked it

Written by John Kobal, the film historian and photo archivist. I had expected this to be a pictorial, like his book on Marilyn Monroe, but in fact it's a full-scale biography - though illustrated throughout. First published in 1977, when Hayworth and many who knew her were still alive, it's essentially a tribute to the woman behind one of the century's great movie stars. Barbara Leaming's biography, published after Hayworth's death, looks more deeply into her personal life. Put together, these two biographies give quite a rounded look at Rita, though Kobal, like Leaming, tends to gloss over her later work.
