Directed by Charles Vidor and released in 1946, Gilda is played superbly by Rita Hayworth in what was her first major dramatic role. It is also the film for which she is most remembered.
Glenn Ford plays her former lover, a gambler who washes up in Buenos Aires, arriving at the end of the road in her husband's nightclub.
Gilda's legendary one-glove removal to 'Put The blame On Mame' is iconic.
Hayworth, a proficient dancer and Fred Astaire's stated favourite partner, danced in a totally different way in Gilda. Indeed, she is startling.
Brilliant cinematography by Rudolph Maté enhances the moodiness of the club scenes to great effect.
