Linda is beautiful and can sing and dance
15 November 2019 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

Nice fast moving biopic of Rita Hayworth. Linda Carter is stunningly beautiful here and shows off her wonderful singing and dancing skills. In fact she is more gorgeous than the real Rita Hayworth. Quite illuminating is her marriage to Aly Khan and the clash of values regarding having mistresses.

So sad to find out about the recent tragic fate of her grand children in the news.

They did biopics better in the 80s and 90s.
