Rita Hayworth: Put The Blame on Mame

I recently saw a clip of Rita Hayworth doing the infamous “Put the Blame on Mame” number from “Gilda” (1946). When it comes to sensuous sex appeal, this number has it in spades. Even fully clothed, Rita Hayworth makes Madonna seem like a total yawn.

Imagine how stoked I was to learn that a Rita Hayworth-Gilda doll had been produced 10 years ago; I was even more excited to actually be able to GET one...all in the course of a week (gotta' love the internet!). Since she can wear Gene’s clothes, I plan on using her for a number of photo shoots; here are my first attempts.

  1. hi,
    i have this doll too. i LOVE it and i'm a HUGE fan of Rita Hayworth. i've had the doll for about 10 years and have never taken her out of the box. recently my sister moved in with me and her dog peed on the box (it was in perfect condition)i'm heartbroken! the doll is okay, but the box is ruined. do you know where i can get another box for her? do you use the one yours came in? i'm willng to pay whatever you think is fair - just for the box. any info is greatly appreciated. thanks:-) my e-mail is thanks.
