Rita Hayworth Dances To The Bee Gees

The lovely film star Rita Hayworth was also an accomplished dancer. A clever person on You Tube has managed to include numerous clips of her dancing, to the background of one of the Bee Gees’ biggest hits. The timing is really good, and it is a joy to watch.

Thanks to my blogging friend, David Miller. He sent me this to cheer me up. And it did.

  1. The original “Lovely Rita”. . .
    Yes, love, love, love this one from a few years back on YouTube.
    She was a Quadriple Threat: Sing, dance, act, looks.
    You can hear her sing in Gilda, but most of all, she was considered one of the, if not ‘the’ best Hollywood dancers of all time. Her parents were both professional dancers, and I think her dad was also a choreographer.

    She was also a dead ringer for a girl born in the Elephant in 1930, Molly Bridger. . . My mum.

    Most I’ve smiled viewing any of your posts ever Pete!

    Big, big ‘Thank you’ to David Miller!

  2. She was so beautiful and talented! My wife and I watched a 1958 film the other day called “Separate Tables,” with Hayworth, Burt Lancaster and the wonderful British actors David Niven (who won an Oscar for the role), Deborah Kerr and Wendy Hiller. If you haven’t seen it, you should watch it sometime! Thanks so much for sharing this delightful video.

    1. Glad you liked the clip, Frank. I have seen ‘Separate Tables’ . It was based on two plays by the excellent British playwright, Terence Rattigan, and he wrote the screenplay.
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Hello! Yes, I read about that. It was very good, and the acting performances were superb. I’d never heard of the film, but ran across it on a streaming service we get called Tubi. When I saw that Niven had received an Oscar for his performance and the film had been a Best Picture nominee, I knew it would be worth watching!
