More focus on her greatness, less focus on her problems and this would be a better documentary
30 June 2012 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In "Rita Hayworth Dancing Into the Dream" we have the chance to know more about the glamorous star of films like "Gilda", "The Lady from Shangai" and "Separated Tables", her life, the stardom in Hollywood, her five marriages and the final and painful years until her death in 1987, after suffering with Alzheimer.

Through testimonies from fellow actors like Jack Lemmon, Glenn Ford and Frank Langella, the choreographer Hermes Pan, one of her daughters and many others the documentary offers more of things we probably didn't want to know than things we would like to discover. It's main focus was in telling her problems, her vulnerability, the failed marriages and the disease instead of showing the good moments of her career, the success and fame. It painted Hayworth as someone worth of pity, and that despite of all the things she conquered she wasn't very happy. Of course the interviewed people here know more about her than anyone else (in a way) but I don't feel this on her, I believe she was more than just that, she was strong, caused impact on people on screen and off screen, a magnetism that is quite rare these days. She had a little bit of Gilda in herself so, this presentation of being too fragile didn't convinced me much and I'm sure most of her fans won't agree with that.

Aside from this issue, there's some good stories too (her great chemistry with Fred Astaire), good archive footage that goes from her early films to scenes of her funeral. And the immortal clips from her outstanding works.

It's good but it could've been better if it wasn't excessive in presenting her low moments. She was bigger than that and we know it. 6/10
