  • Gilda

    1946. USA. Directed by Charles Vidor. Screenplay by Marion Parsonnet. With Rita Hayworth, Glenn Ford, George Macready, Joseph Calleia. Audiences continue to swoon over Hayworth’s performance as the erotic, unattainable Gilda, trapped in a hateful ménage a trois with brooding sadist Glenn Ford and chilly German casino owner George Macready in Buenos Aires. Costume designer Jean Louis is said to have used John Singer Sargent’s portrait of Madame X as the inspiration for the black gown in which Hayworth famously performs her sly striptease, “Put the Blame on Mame". Digital projection. 110 min.
