All right, now that is not even fair. No woman's armpit looks like that ever. She is like one of those fembot Stepford Wives. Please tell me your secret, dead Rita Hayworth.
Johnny Farrell is a former cheat that begins to work for a crooked casino owner, who just happens to be married to Johnny's ex lover. Extreme sexual tension ensues. We get some great iconic scenes like the performance of the song "Put the Blame on Mame" and the sexy hair flip. I have tried to pull this off and said "I'm always decent." I don't think it had the same effect.
This was a fun film for me to watch. Rita Hayworth is absolutely gorgeous, which is reason enough to watch it. I mean, I was drooling and I am straight. Still, even without that, this was a solid romance and definitely worth its place on The List.
Rita broke two of Glenn Ford's teeth when she slapped him.
Rita would later say that "men would go to bed with Gilda and wake up with me." That's incredibly sad!
Not her real singing voice.
