This woman was so beautiful and exciting that Life Magazine put her on their cover 5 times. In the 40's, Rita, who started out as a dancer, appeared in musicals with both Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. However, she wanted a dramatic career and after several films as the "other woman", she finally was noticed in a film starring James Cagney, The Strawberry Blonde in and soon became a much sought after star. When the war started, Rita, along with Betty Grable became the top "pin-up girl" for service men. This led to a film, Cover Girl starring Gene Kelly that reinforced her celebrity power and she soon became one of the top stars in the world.
