Gilda (1946)

Directed by Charles Vidor, written by E.A. Ellington (story), Marion Parsonnet (screenplay)

“I hated her, so I couldn’t get her out of my mind for a minute.”


Cynicism dresses the stage as a down on his luck but talented grifter gets an honest job at a casino from the head of a cartel that saves him from a mugging. His new boss meets and impulsively marries a woman from his past which forms a dangerous love triangle further complicated by murder.


A stunning Rita Hayworth freezes time with her first look toward the camera, and she plays the type of man-eating femme fatale capable of destroying everything around her. The cast turn in great performances, especially our grifter Glenn Ford, but the film sizzles because of her.



Always happy to hear from book lovers. Please feel free to comment!
