Rita Hayworth: The Love Goddess is a 1983 American made-for-television biographical film directed by James Goldstone. Based on the 1982 biography Rita Hayworth by John Kobal, it deals with real events in the life of actress Rita Hayworth from 1931 to 1952. It was broadcast by CBS on November 2, 1983.



Born Rita Cansino, Rita Hayworth rises to the top of Hollywood becoming a World War II "pinup girl" next to Betty Grable and for three years she is one of the top movie actresses in the world. However, her personal life does not match her professional success. Happiness eludes her in her tumultuous relationship with tyrannical studio executive Harry Cohn who often exploits her. She also has an unhappy marriage to Orson Welles and to Prince Aly Khan.
