Charles Vidor’s Gilda (1946): Summer of Noir GIFs, Day 15

“The sculptural shoulders of Rita Hayworth effortlessly bear the whole weight of the film. The new Lola-Lola of the ‘atomic age,’ she is the worthy representative of a certain American eroticism… Within the noir series, Gilda was a film apart, an almost unclassifiable movie in which eroticism triumphed over violence and strangeness.”

—Raymond Borde and Etienne Chaumeton, Panorama du Film Noir Américain
