Description

    Gilda (Columbia, 1946). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
    Rita Hayworth absolutely smolders in her most famous role as the sultry femme fatale from this Charles Vidor film noir, a performance so evocative it would come to seal her status as a Hollywood legend. The scintillating love-hate triangle that unfolds between Hayworth, George MacReady, and Glenn Ford is perhaps the most torrid affair to ever hit the silver screen, its abundance of ill-fated passion and unfiltered loathing overflowing into a tale of underworld treachery. Even more scandalous, Hayworth's portrayal as the seductive Gilda pushed the restrictive Production Code to its limits, her level of sheer sex appeal considered almost voyeuristic in its day. No other image of Hayworth comes close to being as iconic as this style B one sheet, which looks beautiful after light touchup to the folds, pinholes in the lower corners and upper black background, a minor chip in the "R" of "Rita," and a small bit of paper loss above the bottom border to the left. The right, left, and top borders have been trimmed by one inch, with a portion of the white border remaining around the image area, while the bottom border is intact with all of the original copyright information. Professional restoration has replaced the missing paper. Despite these issues, the interior of the poster is in wonderful condition, with brilliant colors that highlight Hayworth's illustrious beauty, a piece worthy of any collection. Fine+ on Linen.
