Frank Worth was just seventeen when he photographed Rita Hayworth in the garden of her home in 1939. The images were not processed for over sixty years.
She came to prominence originally as a dancer in the film "Dante's Inferno" (1935), but her big break came from roles in "only Angles have Wings" (1939) and "Blood and Sand" (1941). Both became huge successes. She became the femme fatale in the film "Gilda" (1946) and an ex-stripper Vera Simpson in the film "Pal Joey" (1957).
Photograph is derived directly from the Estate of Frank Worth, accompanied with a sequentially numbered tamper proof holographic seal and with the Estate Seal of Frank Worth and a facsimile signature.
