Gilda (1946) Film Review

DIRECTOR: Charles Vidor
BOTTOM LINE:   Feast your eyes on Vidor’s stylish direction, Rudolph  Maté’s lush black-and-white cinematography (unusual for a noir film), the Jean Louis gowns and, of course, Rita Hayworth as Gilda, one of Hollywood’s most iconic heroines.  Although both Glenn Ford and George Macready always insisted that they believed their characters to be gay, director Charles Vidor disagreed. Personally, I find it difficult to detect a gay subtext in this movie. In fact, the story is so muddled that it is difficult to uncover anything at all
