"There never was a woman like Gilda!" declared the original poster, and there never was anyone to capture the imagination like Rita Hayworth, whose first appearance is a classic star introduction. Her dance routines raised more than a few eyebrows, and not without cause, as choreographer Jack Cole based them on the act of a well-known exotic dancer. Columbia's low-lit studio recreation of Buenos Aires is quintessential 1940s film noir - the alluring tale of a small-time card-shark (Glenn Ford) whose boss has married a woman he once knew... If you've never seen it, it's about time.

"One of the biggest box office hits of 1946, directed by Charles Vidor, saw Rita Hayworth in a career-defining performance as the ultimate femme fatale. This was the first film noir that I ever watched, and what an impression it made on me! Not only does it depict one of the best examples of sexual tension within a complex love triangle, it offers us a femme fatale who gets to live another day." - Dr Jacky Collins


This screening will be preceded by a discussion hosted by Dr Jacky Collins.
