Joanne Morris (now Doyle) Imitates The Rita Hayworth Hair Throw Back
Rita Hayworth in her first screen appearance in the movie Gilda, as she threw back her
head and tossed her hair, she was asked by the club promoter, "Are you decent Gilda,"
she responded sexily, "Me? Sure, I'm decent." Her thick mane of hair was sent flying as
she rose up.
I had wanted to go to my fathers home for the weekend for a visit and my younger sister,
Joanne, was working in town as a hostess. She had that large mouth smile that Hayworth
had, so I planned on using her for the model. First I cut her hair as she wanted it cut, and
then a friend called boo and I did her makeup. The photo was not well balanced so I had
to recrop in photoshop and clone lots of areas on the right side so that it looked centered.
I am printing many photos now that I never got around to printing before, most never
seen by myself. In total it looks like I took 4 photos, and only this one, with Joanne throwing her hair.
