Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noir Classic! August 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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..."

4.0 out of 5 stars "Hate is a very exciting emotion!" October 10, 2006
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scorching - As In Hot!!! February 27, 2006
The first film I ever saw starring Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford, this 40s noir gem is just too hot and steamy for words!! Sure, the Production Code at the time prohibited any graphic or blatant sexual references, but the performances and innuendo more than make up for it.

The rich black and white cinematography, wonderfully constructed sets, and Rita's dance numbers, as if that's not enough to take one's breath away. The strong, sensual heat generated between Hayworth and Ford is guaranteed to make you very hot beneath your collar. Was there ever a better portrayal of a sizzling love/hate entanglement?

There is a hinted homosexual undertone in the relationship between sinister casino owner Ballin Mundson (George Macready) and his right-hand, Johnny Farrell (Ford), but as soon as Ballin's provocative new wife, Gilda (Hayworth) arrives on the scene, that pretty much goes out the window. The priceless expression on Johnny's face when he discovers that Mundson's bride and his ex-lover are one and the same (amid the famous hair-toss), is a moment that just cannot be beat. Ballin becomes all the more evil and controlling, at first only to Gilda (sensing that she and Johnny knew each other before), but then his bizarre business dealings and plans begin to unravel, leading to a great plot-twist.

Gilda succeeds in arousing Johnny's jealousy through her flirtations with other men, while he tries to keep her supposedly "indecent" behavior from the boss. As much as he claims to despise her, it is obvious that neither one have gotten over the hurt of their "past association". When Johnny has the opportunity to punish her for what he believes to be her sinful behavior, the sparks between them go up another notch. Those slaps that they inflict on each other (love hurts!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gilda April 9, 2007
"Gilda" was Rita Hayworth's vehicle to
cinematic immortality. She plays the
Grande Dame of Femme Fatale; the seductive
High Priestess of all bad girls and
Women of the world. Blatant voyeurism
is more than justified when it comes to
reasons for watching this film. Hayworth is
perfect and she strolls through this movie
with the confidence and sex appeal of a
super model down a runway.

The plot is no disappointment, either. Johnny Farrell (Glen Ford)
wears multiple hats: first, Gilda's "chaperone/protector,"
and later, her husband. In between, Gilda makes
life hell for Johnny (the man who wronged her way back when)
by leading a care-free life of hedonism;
at Johnny's emotional expense, no less. The two are later married
after Ballin Mundson (Gilda's husband and Johnny's boss) fakes his
death to escape the law. Johnny inflicts emotional anguish on
Gilda by restricting her freedom. Gilda rebels and runs away. Her
famous "Put the Blame on Mame" striptrease is her classic
statement of rebellion. From there, more clever twists
and turns finally result in Gilda and Johnny finally recognizing
their true love for each other.

Don't think twice; get this movie. It's guaranteed enjoyment
for any fan of Hollywood's silver screen era. It's also
a "must-buy" for Rita Hayworth fans.
