Rating: 5/5 -- While Gilda's ending perhaps edges towards easy sentimentality, its story is one of emotional complexity, variant readings, and problematic eroticism. Full Review
Rita Hayworth's entrance is pure Hollywood starcraft: a perfectly lit close-up as she whips her head into frame, her hair lashing back and revealing her bright face and wide, mischievous grin. Full Review
'Gilda' is memorable for the minutes of one dubbed song, one dance. But, ah! that one sexually confident shimmy is enough. Full Review
ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Rating: 4.5/5 -- The limitations of the Hays code forced writers and directors to get creative, and so much of what's really happening in Gilda is buried beneath the surface. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- The plot elements aren't always riveting, but the subtext of the pas de trois never disappoints. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- A real 1940s Hollywood treat. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Cast and crew spin a twilight magic.
London Evening Standard
GILDA is the film that gave the world the indelible image of Rita Hayworth in that tight gown, lovingly removing that long glove as she sings, "Put the Blame on Mame." That's enough to justify a viewing, but the film has more, including a bewitched, bothered, etc., performance by a never-better Glenn Ford. GILDA is an intricate noir in which Hayworth, as the titular femme fatale, is placed by her mobster club-owner husband in the care of Ford, a small-time hood who also happens to be her ex-lover.
