Spend Sunday afternoon in the company of the ultimate bombshell Rita Hayworth as we screen the film that gave her her first big break, followed by the film that was to define her career.
Only Angels Have Wings, Howard Hawks’ buoyantly entertaining action-adventure, is set in Barranca, a South American port city swathed in perpetual fog, where a band of mail pilots struggle daily to get their planes through a treacherous mountain pass. Cary Grant is the leader of this daredevil group whose cool style is tested by the arrival of a wisecracking blonde (Jean Arthur) and an ex-mistress (Hayworth in her first serious screen role).
Classic film noir Gilda weaves a complex web of desire and deceit… Glenn Ford plays Johnny, a gambler rescued from a beating by George Macready’s German casino owner, Mundson. Employed in his new benefactor’s casino, Johnny finds himself caught between his sense of loyalty and his desire for his host’s sultry wife, Gilda (Hayworth), a woman he was once involved with. Full of Freudian symbolism, sexual innuendo and a terrifically vampish performance from Hayworth, whose rendition of ‘Put the Blame on Mame’ is guaranteed to turn heads.
