Rita Hayworth, Gilda
There are many (lucky for us!) Rita Hayworth promotional pictures from her iconic role as the title character in Gilda. Gilda (1946) was directed by Charles Vidor and stars Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford. It’s a legendary film, mostly due to the fact that Rita Hayworth is so remarkably well…. she was so remarkably Rita!
However, when (if?) you get past her ridiculous beauty, you will find this to be a wonderfully-directed, exceptionally well-acted, and very well-written movie. It’s one of my favorites. It’s also the movie that introduced me to Glenn Ford and made him such a favorite.
It’s funny, a lot of the Gilda Promotional pictures of Rita Hayworth are sultry and gorgeous (like the one below), but for some reason, the photo above is my favorite. It, to me, is more representative of the person lovely Rita actually was.
