    Gilda (Columbia, 1946). Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
    No other image of Rita Hayworth comes close to being as iconic as this style B one sheet. She 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. This poster looks lovely after professional conservation to correct fold wear, misfolds, extra vertical folds, and a few tears and scratches in the interior. Some toning is still apparent within parts of the image. There was a trim along the lower border below the printed text, trims along the side borders that extended slightly into the background, and a trim along the top that reached into the upper background by approximately 1". Airbrushing has been applied to the borders and white text.
