 Rita’s surprise elopement in the middle of shooting Cover Girl to marry Orson Welles.The press had a field day describing it as the marriage of Beauty and the Brain. (September 9, 1943.)
According to co-star Lee Bowman:
'Rita arrived on the set the day we were shooting the film's wedding scene. She looked very lovely sitting there in her wedding dress while the crew were setting up. Rita sat there with her hands in her lap, her eyes very big and a lovely big pussy smile on her face. When any of us asked, “What is it, Rita?” she'd just shake her head and say, “Mmm, I've got a secret.” Wouldn't say anything else. The first we knew what it was came during the lunch break when somebody brought us the papers with the headlines.'
