Gilda (PG)

Drama, Film-Noir, Romance

The sinister boss of a South American casino finds that his right-hand man Johnny and his sensuous new wife Gilda already know each other.

The critical consensus

Hothouse passions were rarely steamier than in Charles Vidor’s 1946 thriller, and the close-knit triangle set-up plays itself out in classic noir style.

****(*)Philip Kemp, Total Film, 12/07/2011

Examples of film noir don’t come much headier or more perverse than Charles Vidor’s sultry little number.

****(*)Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 21/07/2011

A real 1940s Hollywood treat.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 21/07/2011

Gilda stands up remarkably well.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 22/07/2011

A classic film noir well worth revisiting on the big screen.

Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 22/07/2011

First released in 1946, Gilda is a wonderfully perverse noir classic that comes over as a cross between Casablanca (an intentional influence) and Hitchcock's Notorious (which appeared just weeks after Gilda).
