#Fact
1 Charlton Heston wrote about Rita Hayworth's brief marriage to James Hill. Heston and his wife Lydia joined the couple for dinner in a restaurant in Spain with the director George Marshall and Rex Harrison, Hayworth's co-star in "The Happy Thieves." Heston wrote in his memoir that the occasion "turned into the single most embarrassing evening of my life", describing how Hill heaped "obscene abuse" on Hayworth until she was "reduced to a helpless flood of tears, her face buried in her hands". Heston writes how they all sat stunned, witnesses to a "marital massacre" and though he was "strongly tempted to slug him" (Hill), he instead simply took his wife Lydia home when she stood up, almost in tears. Heston wrote, "I'm ashamed of walking away from Miss Hayworth's humiliation. I never saw her again.".
2 Funeral service for Rita Hayworth was on May 19, 1987, at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills, California. Pallbearers included actors Ricardo Montalbán, Glenn Ford, Don Ameche, agent Budd Burton Moss, and the choreographer Hermes Pan. More than 500 mourners, including film greats, fans, relatives and friends, crowded into the Church to hear Rita Hayworth eulogized as a "sweet, kind, gentle lady" who was actually shy away from the cameras. This recollection of Miss Hayworth, was given by Jane Withers, a child actress in the 1930s and a friend of Miss Hayworth. Internment was at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California. Miss Hayworth's daughters, Rebecca Welles and Princess Yasmin, walked behind the coffin.
3 On May 15, 1987, President Ronald Reagan issued the following statement on the death of Rita Hayworth: "Rita Hayworth was one of our country's most beloved stars. Glamorous and talented, she gave us many wonderful moments on stage and screen and delighted audiences from the time she was a young girl. In her later years, Rita became known for her struggle with Alzheimer's disease. Her courage and candor, and that of her family, were a great public service in bringing worldwide attention to a disease which we all hope will soon be cured. Nancy and I are saddened by Rita's death. She was a friend who we will miss. We extend our deep sympathy to her family.".
4 In February 1987, Rita Hayworth fell into a semi coma and she died three months later.
5 In July 1972, she was scheduled to replace Lauren Bacall in the original Broadway musical "Applause" playing at the Palace Theatre in New York City. She changed her mind when she felt she would have insufficient rehearsal time before opening. Anne Baxter replaced her.
6 In 1962, she left the leading role in the three-act Broadway stage comedy "Step on the Crack", after three weeks of rehearsal because she realized the play still needed a great deal of rewriting. The play opened in the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York City on October 17th and closed the next day after one performance.

#Quote
1 [on her husbands] They fell in love with Gilda and woke up with me.
2 I've always been so bored with the empty stuff I've had to play. But I've always been happiest when I've had a definite character slant to a role.
3 Sensitive, shy -- of course I was. The fun of acting is to become someone else.
4 [on her marriage to Edward Judson] I married him for love; he married me for an investment.
5 All the action in the screenplay for Separate Tables (1958) took place in a seaside hotel in England, which was a mecca for tourists in the summer and a haven for the desperate and lonely in the winter.
6 Orson Welles was trying something new with me on The Lady from Shanghai (1947) but Harry Cohn wanted The Image -- The Image he was going to make me until I was 90.
7 Sometimes when I find myself getting impatient, I just remember the times I cried my eyes out because nobody wanted to take my picture at the Trocadero.
8 I didn't like dancing very much, but I didn't have the courage to tell my father, so I began taking the lessons. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. That was my girlhood.
9 I couldn't get used to the New York weather. On one occasion, I was laid up for a week because I caught a severe cold rushing from the dance studio, still soaked with perspiration, back to the hotel for voice lessons.
10 I was never sick during The Lady from Shanghai (1947). Poor Orsie [Orson Welles] was the one who was sick; Harry Cohn made him sick.
11 Who wouldn't prefer having breakfast in bed to getting up at the crack of dawn and having a cup of coffee in a studio makeup department?
12 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.
13 I rode on horseback, though I was terrified of them. That was when I was doing westerns. They were something else again. And I did them because that was work, that was my job. So I don't start from the top.
14 I wanted to study singing, but Harry Cohn kept saying, "Who needs it?" and the studio wouldn't pay for it. They had me so intimidated that I couldn't have done it anyway. They always said, "Oh, no, we can't let you do it. There's no time for that; it has to be done right now!" I was under contract, and that was it.
15 [on why she divorced Orson Welles] I can't take his genius any more.
16 [early in her career about husband Eddie Judson] I owe everything to Ed. I could never have made the grade in Hollywood without him. I was just too backward. My whole career was his idea.
17 Increasingly, stars are recruited from the ranks of professional models, with the result that today's starlets are better dressed and better groomed than ever before, though it is doubtful if they are better actresses.
18 After all, a girl is... well, a girl. It's nice to be told you're successful at it.
19 We are all tied to our destiny and there is no way we can liberate ourselves.
20 No one can be Gilda 24 hours a day.
21 Basically, I am a good, gentle person, but I'm attracted to mean personalities.
22 Every actor, every director, everybody needs an Oscar. You have to have that little statue in Hollywood, or else you're nothing!
23 The fun of acting is to become someone else.
24 I think all women have a certain elegance about them which is destroyed when they take off their clothes.
25 What surprises me in life are not the marriages that fail, but the marriages that succeed.
26 All I wanted was just what everybody else wants, you know, to be loved.
27 [1974, when asked what she thought when she looks at herself after waking up in the morning] Darling, I don't wake up 'til the afternoon.
28 I never really thought of myself as a sex goddess; I felt I was more a comedian who could dance.
29 [when asked what had held up her dress in Gilda (1946)] Two things.
30 I haven't had everything from life. I've had too much.
31 [To writer Virginia Van Upp] Every man I have ever known has fallen in love with Gilda and awakened with me.
32 [on her husbands] They fell in love with Gilda and woke up with me.
