Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

All film noirs need deceit, betrayal, dialogue hard as diamonds--and dames even harder than that. But Gilda is the only one with the dame front and center, and for good reason. Rita Hayworth shimmers in the 1946 classic, which spins on a tortured plot involving the title character (Hayworth); her imperious husband (George Macready), a ruthless casino owner and head of an Argentine tungsten cartel (!); and Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford), Gilda's ex-lover and now her husband's go-fer. But no one watches Gilda for the plot, except to learn that all the characters have secrets--perhaps even ones they would kill for. Hayworth captures Gilda's vulnerability beneath her devil-may-care front ("If I'd been a ranch, they would have named me the Bar Nothing"). Not to be missed: Hayworth's slinky striptease to "Put the Blame on Mame." --Anne Hurley

Product Description

The legendary Rita Hayworth sizzles with sensuality and magnetism as she sings "Put the Blame on Mame" and delivers a dazzling performance as the enticing temptress Gilda. In the story of GILDA, Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford) goes to work for Ballin Mundson (George Macready), the proprietor of an illegal gambling casino in a South American city, and quickly rises to become Mundson's main man. All iswell until Mundson returns from a trip with his new bride Gilda - a woman from Johnny's past. Mundson, unaware of their previous love affair, assigns Farrell the job of keeping Gilda a faithful wife.Fraught with hatred, Gilda does her best to antagonize, intimidate, and instill jealousy in Farrell- until circumstances allow him to get even.

Customer Reviews

Rita Hayworth and her co star had a great chemistry.
Ms. S.B.
Of course, love and hate are opposite sides of the same coin and this is especially true of Gilda and Frank.
Ron Braithwaite
And that silky black dress - I think I speak for all of the viewing females when I say, I want that dress!!!

Rita Hayworth's immortal film that haunted her throughout life and career, once quoted about the men in her life as, "They went to bed with Gilda, and woke up with me...".
Infamous and seductive in its most popular days, Gilda is a film that represents some of the best and memorable scenes from the film noir genre. The beauty of this film is in the silent moments. It is in the contrast of the shadows and light in every scene from the moment when Glen Ford enters the film from a darken alley to Rita Hayworth tossing her hair over her shoulder. What is impeccable about the film is the chemistry of the cast, and style of the film itself. Several particular scenes that stand out:
---Gilda's sultry performance of "Put the Blame on Mame".
---Gilda and Johnny dancing for the first time at the club.
---Gilda's curse of damning the woman who wronged Johnny.
---Gilda's declaration of hate for Johnny, " I hate you so much, I'd destroy myself just to take you down with me..."

Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford star in Gilda, a noir thriller set in Buenos Aires. Ford plays Johnny, a down on his luck gambler who is picked up by a casino owner. Johnny quickly becomes the casino owner's right-hand man--with a pact that women and gambling don't mix. Then Johnny's boss comes back from a trip with a new wife, Gilda,played incandescently by Rita Hayworth. Gilda is a typical noir femme fatale. She acts fast and loose but is actually just trying to get her guy jealous. Of course, her guy isn't her husband--its Johnny.

This odd little story is highly likeable for about three quarters of the film, when it makes a strange detour. Fortunately for us, the story gets right back on track at the end.

Ford does a good job as the loyal and jealous Johnny. He is vibrant, athletic and serious. Hayworth's beauty glows and gleams. She is given quite a few song and dance numbers. Her dancing is talented but strangely loose limbed. The movie steams with chemistry between Ford and Hayworth which is fortunate because the plot is more than a little cockeyed. The filming is gorgeously contrasted black and white with the requisite shadowy interiors.

Indeed. I've hated women like that too, it usually translated into some of the most passionate sex
and most ardent damage to my home, cars, golf clubs, shoes, life, etc. haw haw

The best of the "Holy Cripes, look who's working for my new husband in an Argentine Casino" Noir-nivals.
Rita Hayworth is absolutely stunning in the role as Gilda, and the chemistry and tension between her and
Johnny Farrell (Ford) is incredible. You know instantaneously when they are reunited that somebody got
hosed pretty badly, and the hosing ain't over cause thats just what follows these two.

A 5 star flick except for the last 20-30 minutes which lapses into total predictability, and the underlying
attraction between Hayworth's husband (Ballin) and Johnny Farrell. Fantastic black and white clean transfer,
and a ten minute featurette on Hayworth's career. A devoted heterosexual declares this film 4 Keys.

In discussions about classic cinema "Gilda" is a movie that deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Casablanca (Two-Disc Special Edition). "Gilda" has a darker plot and the characters are not as noble, but story, cast, costumes, and music combine to create screen magic. Think of "Gilda" as a riveting Anti-Casablanca.

Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford) is an American drifter who has somehow landed in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He needs cash to survive and takes his chances using loaded dice to gamble with sailors. Quitting while he is ahead, Johnny leaves the dice game with a big bankroll and is accosted in the port by a gunman. To his surprise, the holdup is thwarted by a passerby, Ballin Mundson (George Macready). One thing leads to another and eventually Johnny becomes Mundson's devoted right hand man and the manager of his very lucrative casino business. After taking an extended overseas business trip, Mundson returns to Buenos Aires with a bride - Gilda (Rita Hayworth). Mundson introduces Johnny and Gilda, hoping these two important people in his life will like each other. He doesn't realize that Gilda and Johnny have known each other in the past, and both have been trying to escape their painful shared history together. Sparks fly between them as Gilda does everything in her power to torment Johnny, and Johnny is equally determined to make Gilda feel cheap and insignificant. After sixty years, the tension between Hayworth and Ford is still palpable.

Rita Hayworth was at the height of her beauty and touted as the sexiest woman alive when "Gilda" was made in 1946.

Gilda (1946)
Directed: Charles Vidor, With: Rita Hayworth,, Glenn Ford,
George Macready
A typical melodrama of the forties, with an unusual advantage: it had in it the sex goddess of the times, Rita Hayworth, then, at 27, reigning supreme, for no other female star could match her sexual bravado, beauty, if not talent. Talent, not for winning Oscars, but for subjecting an audience to a hypnotic state reserved only for celestial figures that became flesh. There are a couple of other factors that make this oldie still watchable and memorable. Glenn Ford, early in his career, gives a magnetic performance as her frustrated lover, who finally wins her, but who had to undergo the conflicts of loyalty to his boss and overcome his dislike for the type of women he thought his inamorata represented. And the final reason is George Macready himself. A polished villain, scarred on one cheek, wielding a cane with a stiletto in it, he is one of those villains Hollywood produced in the `40s and `50s--Basil Rathbone, George Sanders, James Mason, among others--that audiences loved to hate. He is corrupt and totally unscrupulous, running an illegal casino in Argentina, but fatally smitten by the charms of Hayworth, and insanely jealous.

The mix is good, though the plot is murky. We don't quite know whether Macready is a megalomaniac Nazi and what the cartel he presides over really is, but we have the tension created among the three intensify as the movie progresses, and Hayworth's dancing and "singing" at the right moments add to the allure of this movie, semi-forgotten for its message (there is none) but reminding us what Hollywood had at its disposal women of the silver screen whose sex appeal (without much bare skin) has never been duplicated.
