When the Depression wiped out her family’s savings, she and her father went to Tijuana, Mexico to perform in clubs because she was too young to perform in Hollywood. Hayworth was the top pin-up girl for GIs during World War II.
Rita Hayworth was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 1980, which is said to have contributed to her death at age 68.
