Gilda

"Good"

Gilda Review


The definitive Rita Hayworth vehicle is this film, Gilda, her most famous film, shot when her career was beginning to slow down. Whether dancing, singing, or tempting a pair of men in an Argentine casino, Hayworth is a burning presence in ever scene -- every scene she's in, anyway. Hayworth is absent for the first 22 minutes of the movie, during which Charles Vidor sets up a plot about a troublesome gambler (Glenn Ford) who later enters into Gilda and her rich husband's life. Oh, and they have a past together, too. I could forget Ford, but Hawyworth deserves all the attention she gets throughout the film.
