Rita Hayworth sings “Put the Blame on Mame” as the much lusted-after wife of a mob boss (George Macready) and ex-flame of his bitter henchman (Glenn Ford).

“Cynical, pessimistic and thrilling.” – Sheila O’Malley, Criterion

“Despite critical drubbing (‘high-class trash,’ sniffed the Daily News), in one of the biggest box office bonanzas of its year and now a bona fide film noir classic – the high of 1940s screen eroticism.

Down-and-outer Glenn Ford’s ‘You’ve no idea how faithful and obedient I can be’ pledge to Buenos Aires nightclub magnate George Macready is threatened when the boss later produces a wife – Rita Hayworth.

‘There never was a woman like Gilda!’ shouted the ads, and there never was a star as electrifying as Hayworth, from her hair-tossing first close-up; to her teasing bumps and grinds, dressed in black satin gown, to the strains of “Put the Blame on Mame;” to the screen-igniting sensuality of her scenes with an uncharacteristically fiery Ford.

Gilda boasts some of the most feverish noir dialogue of the decade and the screen’s first multi-sexual ménage á trois – an element totally unnoticed by contemporary critics.” — Film Forum
