Gilda

Really an iconic film. Rita Hayworth, and really what’s there to say about her? She made looking that good way too easy. And Glen Ford, who seems to have been forgotten amongst his peers. But who in Gilda and The Big Heat, gave such hard-edged performances that he deserves a better memory.

As for the film, has hate ever been more enjoyably captured. Not accurately, for those are unpleasant films that can capture hate truthfully, but enjoyably. Hayworth and Ford seethe and plot against each other. So much so, that the plot becomes an afterthought. Really, who cares if the villian’s might be Nazi’s or Nazi sympathizers?

Let’s watch our two protagonists hate.
