Turner Classic Movies presents the first-ever comprehensive documentary on Hollywood glamour girl Rita Hayworth in the documentary Rita (2003). Rita thoroughly chronicles Hayworth's career and provides behind-the-scenes glimpses into her life and her marriages to high-profile men Orson Welles and Prince Aly Aga Kahn, among others.
Highlights include a rare interview with the star's daughter, Yasmin Aga Kahn, as well as never-before-seen color home movie footage from the 1940s, 1960s and 1970s, rare family photographs and commentary from Hayworth herself throughout the program from an interview taped shortly before Alzheimer's ravaged her memory.
Narrated by Kim Basinger.
