Femme Fatales: The Women of Film Noir screening - Gilda
Gambler Johnny Farrell (Glenn Ford) is rescued from a gunman by Ballin Mundson, the sinister boss of an Argentine casino, who later makes Johnny his right-hand man. Their association is based on a mutual lack of scruples and is strained when Mundson returns from a trip with a wife: The supremely desirable Gilda (Rita Hayworth), whom Johnny once knew and learned to hate.
Friday's screening will be introduced by CultureMap contributor Regina Scruggs, member of Houston Film Critics Society and Broadcast Film Critics Association. Sunday's screening will be introduced by Peter Vonder Haar of Film Threat.
