With scintillating performances in Gilda and more, Rita Hayworth was a box office draw and a pin-up idol of the 1940s and 1950s. But there was more to Hayworth than her gorgeous looks and her status as a Hollywood “love goddess.” She was an accomplished dancer and a terrific actress, and she had the chance to show off in her lone appearance on Suspense. We’ll hear her as a murderess contending with a blackmailer in “Three Times Murder” (originally aired on October 3, 1946). Then we’ll hear her playing for laughs opposite George Burns and Gracie Allen in an episode from March 21, 1944.
