Classic Film: Gilda (1946) at the El Cerrito Theater

Simply one of the best classic films - and early Noirs - made! Gilda in the black dress is an icon of 1940's Hollywood. Aside from its absorbing storyline, Gilda is an excellent character study of fascinating personalities played by Rita Hayworth, Glenn Ford, and George McCready. Not a classic film to be missed! There's some fun movie trivia that I'll share with you while we're waiting for the curtain to go up.

When wealthy Ballin Mundson (George Macready) rescues down at his heels gambler Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford) and invites him to the Buenos Aires casino he owns, both men get more than they wagered on. Farrell convinces Mundson to hire him as casino manager, but is shocked when Mundson introduces his new bride, Gilda (Rita Hayworth). Later, Mundson reveals to Farrell that his primary business is control of an international tungsten cartel that he plans to use to further his fascist ends.

Start time is 7pm, I will meet you in the LOBBY at 6:30p so we can all sit together. Please purchase your ticket online or at the box office. I'll email my cell to everyone in case you need to reach me.

See you at the movies!
