Death of famed actress/pin-up girl Rita Hayworth...

Item # 660432

May 16, 1987

LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 16, 1987 

* Rita Hayworth death (1st report)
* Hollywood movie - film actress
* World War II era pin-up girl
* Best title to be had?

The top of the front page features 3 photos of classic film star/World War II pin-up girl Rita Hayworth, beneath which is a one column heading; "Rita Hayworth, 'Love Goddess' of '40's, Dies". The article carries over to page half of page 26 and includes another photo. Two more photos on page 27.
Hayworth achieved fame during the 1940's as one of the era's top stars, appearing in a total of 61 films over 37 years. The press coined the term "love goddess" to describe Hayworth after she had become the most glamorous screen idol of the 1940's. She was the top pin-up girl for GIs during World War II.
Great to have this report in a newspaper from the capital of the entertainment industry.
The complete first section with pages 1-30, very nice, clean condition.
