NOIR CITY X: GILDA / THE MONEY TRAP
The price of admission gets you in for the double bill, plus live entertainment.
Featured musical performance by David Olney & Sergio Webb
(1946, Columbia, 110 min.)
Rita Hayworth created her Hollywood "Love Goddess" legend in this tailor-made romantic drama, first of several sex-charged pairings with costar Glenn Ford. The film's amazing sexual symbolism slipped past the censors (and most viewers) at the time; today the film is regarded as one of the greatest examples of a director "working around" the Production Code. Screenplay by Marion Parsonnet; adaptation by Jo Eisinger; story by E. A. Ellington. Directed by Charles Vidor.
THE MONEY TRAP
(1965, MGM/WB, 91 min.)
Thirty years after steaming up the screen in Gilda, Glenn Ford and Rita Hayworth were reunited, poignantly, in this '60s-style homage to old-school film noir. Director Burt Kennedy gives a hard, jazzy edge to the proceedings, winking toward the film's 1940s roots, while giving the full '60s-style sex-bomb treatment to costar Elke Sommer. Screenplay by Walter Bernstein, from the novel by Lionel White.
