Dachshunds in Pop Culture: Rita Hayworth

Rita Hayworth Gave Good Face

Who?  Oh, we think you know. Rita Hayworth (born Margarita Carmen Cansino; October 17, 1918 – May 14, 1987) was an American film actress and dancer who attained fame during the 1940s as one of the era's top stars. She appeared in 61 films over 37 years and is listed as one of the American Film Institute's Greatest Stars of All Time. 
Hayworth was a top glamour girl in the 1940s, a pin-up girl for military servicemen and a beauty icon for women. In 1949 Hayworth's lips were voted best in the world by the Artists League of America.
And oh yeah - she was of course a Dachshund Lover.  Seen above with her handsome black and tan smooth 'Knockwurst,' (she called him Knocky), the archives of People Magazine reports that she had two other Dachshunds:  'Lilac' and 'Mink.'

Ms. Hayworth was never better than in the 1946 film Gilda.
