CELEBRITIES I HAVE KNOWN
I never knew nor even met Rita Hayworth, but on a memorable occasion I once glimpsed her. It was on a Saturday afternoon at the Fox Beverly in Beverly Hills. I had gone to see Separate Tables, and Rita was there to see herself. The film had ended, the lights had come up and a fairly sizable audience was filing up the two aisles. As I neared the back of the theater, I spotted her in the middle of the last row, alone. She was wrapped in a luscious reddish fur coat. Atop it, on the shoulders, was that luscious red hair. I stopped one moment and stared and she saw me. Then one of my GREAT moments happened. She winked at me, slid further down in her seat and looked straight ahead. I walked on and so did everyone behind me. I had been the only person to see her, and I floated home.
See you at the movies,
