GILDA

Dir. Charles Vidor (USA, 1946) 110 mins

Just arrived in Argentina, small-time crooked gambler Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford) is saved from a gunman by sinister Ballin Mundson (George Macready), who later makes Johnny his right-hand man. But their friendship based on mutual lack of scruples becomes strained when Mundson returns from a trip with a wife: the supremely desirable Gilda (Rita Hayworth), whom Johnny once knew and has now learned to hate. The relationship between Johnny and Gilda, a battlefield of warring emotions, becomes even more bizarre once Mundson disappears.
