Rita Hayworth, Present at the Creation

In August 1941, LIFE magazine ran a photo of up-and-coming movie actress Rita Hayworth. The striking redhead in a silky nightgown became one of the most famous pin-ups of World War II. Monday on Morning Edition's Present at the Creation series, NPR's Susan Stamberg reports on the snapshot's appeal and on Rita Hayworth's life.
