That's Susan Hayward - Rita Hayworth. The song by the New Vaudeville Band is "Dear Rita Hayworth," but I can't find it, either.
Personally, I think Rita was the most beautiful woman that ever lived. My favorite Hayworth movie is Cover Girl,, with Gene Kelly and an amazing performance by Phil Silvers. Who knew that Sgt. Bilko could sing and dance?

The best is surely Gilda, though I do like Only Angels Have Wings. Among the weirdest is The Lady in Question, a French film transposed to Hollywood -- Rita plays the Simone Signoret part.

yours,

Peter T.

Then there's "They Came To Cordura" -- now there is a dark film, the climax of which is Rita Hayworth giving herself to a thug so that the hero can get some sleep!!!

no doubt there ARE 500 people who can't spell, never see what they are reading, and don't bother to look it up before they put the wrong name on a web site.... Google is an extraordinary window on the carelessness and ignorance that pervades a portion of the population.

Phil Silvers (Sargeant? Sergeant? What's the correct spelling of the Army NCO rating? Bilko.) had begun developing his multitude of talents in Vaudeville, before there was ever TV. Quite a goodly number of the early TV greats had that education.
Yes, Rita Hayworth was a stunner. And had more than her looks to recommend her.                      Tw

From: Jim Dixon

Here's my transcription from the video on YouTube – see link above. I'm not sure about the line "hot water and a telephone". It sounds like "hot water on the telephone" but that made no sense to me.


DEAR RITA HAYWORTH
As sung by the New Vaudeville Band

1. Dear Rita Hayworth:
I'm sending off this letter to the USA.
I thought you like to know
That I saw you in the daily press today.

2. Do you still make movies?
Could you send a picture for my bedroom wall?
If ever you're in England,
You'd be welcome if you'd like to call.

BRIDGE:
You won't find no other girl
Sharing my room with me.
I have hot water and a telephone,
And though I guess you'd think I'm more than slightly mad,
If you could drop a line, I'd be so glad.

3. Dear Rita Hayworth:
Surely I must be your number-one fan.
For twenty-seven years
I've loved you ev'ry way that I can.

[The New Vaudeville Band were a one-hit wonder; they recorded "Winchester Cathedral" in 1966.]

Hmmm. In this day and age, this would be grounds for Rita to get a restraining order...

Joe Offer, it's just personal opinion I know, and Yes, Rita was a stunner, but surely Gene Tierney was the most beautiful woman ever on screen. Not as big a star as Rita, but SO beautiful, the object of my early teenage fantasies.
