Heralded as a new team in motion pictures, Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford are off to a flying start in Gilda.
November 19, 2020
Completely disregarding the very obvious and eye-appealing fact, that Rita Hayworth is one of the world's most beautiful women, we are going to award her our personal accolade for also being one of the most dynamic and distinguished actresses.

If it's escape you want in a movie, you will find surcease from the worry of today's scary headlines at the Music Hall, where Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford are pitted against each other in a lusty battle of hate and love.
November 19, 2020
The captivating Miss Hayworth turns in what is perhaps her best performance as the reckless Gilda.
November 19, 2020
Not since the archaic days of Theda Bara and her brazen ilk has sex appeal been set forth in so rampant a fashion on the screen.
November 19, 2020
A sumptuously sordid story about crime, major and minor, in Buenos Aires.
November 19, 2020
In Gilda, you get a smart, expensively-produced drama, deliberately and quite successfully sensational.
November 19, 2020
It's really good pulse-tingling cinema presented in good adult taste but there are sequences from which adolescents might draw the conclusion that all that shimmers is not heavenly light.
November 19, 2020
It establishes and sustains an atmosphere amoral, sumptuous and even passionate; it is an atmosphere to which American films often appear to aspire and which they seldom attain.
November 19, 2020
A South American melodrama rather fuzzy as to plot but with some excellent acting and a few effective scenes.
November 19, 2020
It's a whizzer, this one just the sort of movie, spelled capital MOVIE that can't miss, because it's got nearly everything.

This reviewer is completely baffled as to... what happened during the picture, and what the whole idea was. But maybe it was because she was just so overwhelmed by the astounding characterization of Rita Hayworth in the title role.

It has been a long time since so many handsomely dressed people became involved in so unpolished a romance for the delight of those who go to the movies.
August 26, 2020
Gilda is a sultry melodrama, heavily laced with intrigue, in which Rita Hayworth dissipates as much sex-appeal as the screen will bear.
August 26, 2020
Credit is due Charles Vidor for his expert direction, for, despite the bewildering and somewhat pointless script, he has given to the proceedings a sense of excitement and suspense that grips the spectator from start to finish.
August 26, 2020
There is fine, serious acting by Glenn Ford, a character study by Steven Geray that is a rare treat to witness, and some imperial German arrogance from George Macready, complete with duelling scar.
August 26, 2020
Ford still managed to sustain the intense pessimism and world-weary cruelty... that made Farrell one of the most ambiguous anti-heroes of the 1940s.
August 26, 2020
The chief weight of the grim drama falls on the shoulders of Rita Hayworth, who presents Gilda with alluring skill. Glenn Ford makes Johnny a cool but likeable scoundrel, with George Macready, whose Mundson is a cold and very unllkeable scoundrel.
August 26, 2020
[Ford], more than anyone, gives the film a tense, vibrant quality which overcomes the imperfections of plot.
August 26, 2020
Commotion, excitement and glamour are to be found in abundance in an offering that uses tested melodramatic ingredients to good purpose and sustains the suspense satisfactorily.
