The most prolific staple in film noirs has to be the femme fatale. One look and you're done for.

After casino owner Bailln Mundson (George Macready) saves gambler Johnny Farrell's (Glenn Ford) life, he hires him as his right-hand man. But Mundson returns from a trip with new wife Gilda (Rita Hayworth), things become complicated.

Boy, no wonder this is Hayworth's most prolific role. Her character of Gilda is prone to make men melt. Along with Hayworth's work, Gilda is an excellent film noir. The black-and-white photography, the smoky and exotic setting, and the score make Gilda what it is: a classic.

My Rating: ****1/2
