Rita Hayworth plays femme fatale Gilda in this Charles Vidor film noir. Causing strife between two bad guys, Johnny (Glenn Ford) and her husband Mundson (George Macready), Hayworth performs one of her most famous numbers, “Put the Blame on Mame” (sung by Anita Kert Ellis). Although it won no awards surrounding its release, the Library of Congress chose Gilda for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry in 2013 for its historical and aesthetic impact.
