Rita Hayworth’s most memorable role sees her as a mobster’s wife – the ultimate femme fatale.
Dir Charles Vidor
With Rita Hayworth, Glenn Ford, George Macready
Small time gambler Johnny (Ford) arrives in Buenos Aires, where he quickly gains favour with a local mobster, only to find out that his ex-lover Gilda (Hayworth) is his new boss’s wife. Hayworth plays the ultimate femme fatale in one of her most beguiling screen roles, of which she once famously said, ‘every man I knew went to bed with Gilda... and woke up with me.’
