    Description

    Gilda (Columbia, 1946). French Grande (46.5" X 63.25").
    Renowned French artist Boris Grinsson is credited with this glorious image of Rita Hayworth in her most important role. As Gilda, Hayworth portrayed the ultimate femme fatale, luring men into their demise through her raw sexuality. In this particular case, one of the men was her ex (Glenn Ford), and the other is the man who's now her husband and her ex's employer (George Macready). An atmosphere of jealousy and doom threatens to tear down the two men's business and personal relationship as Gilda sings, dances and provokes them into a final confrontation. Gilda was a highlight of the film noir genre, a genre recognized early on by the French and epitomized by this incredible image. Heritage has presented the re-release French grande for this pivotal title, but this is the first original release in that format. The poster displays nicely after touchup to the folds, horizontal misfolds, creases, and a small chip in Hayworth's chest. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
