Fashion in films :: Gilda (1946)


Si hay alguna película que convirtió a su actriz en un mito erótico, es sin duda Gilda. Dirigida en 1946 por Charles Vidor y protagonizada por Rita Hayworth  (Gilda) y Glenn Ford (Johnny Farrell), la película narra la historia de un tormentoso triángulo amoroso.

En su época, le película resultó un auténtico escándalo tanto por lo que representaba Gilda (una mujer extremadamente sensual , atractiva y libertina) como por el insinuante striptease que protagoniza  y que culmina con la bofetada más famosa de toda la historia del cine.

Un clásico para ver una y otra vez...


¿SABÍAIS QUÉ...?

- Rita fue doblada por Anita Ellis en todas las escenas de canto, excepto en la última dónde también toca la guitarra

-La bofetada fue tan fuerte y le pilló tan de sorpresa a Rita que las lágrimas fueron reales

If there is a film that converted its star in an erotic myth, that’s Gilda. Directed by Charles Vidor in 1946 and starred by Rita Hayworth (Gilda) and Glenn Ford (Johnny Farrell) it tells the story of a stormy love triangle.

At that time, the film was outrageous not only for what Gilda represented (an extremely sensual, attractive an libertine woman) but also for the glove striptease that finished with the most famous slap in the film history. 

A classic to see time and again…  


DID YOU KNOW IT...?

-Rita was dubbed by Anita Ellis in all the signing scenes except the last one where she also plays the guitar

-The slap was to hard and unexpected thta Rita's tears were for real



EL VESTUARIO
El francés Jean-Louis fue el encargado del diseño de los inolvidables vestidos de Rita Hayworth, algunos de los cuales se han convertido en auténticos iconos de la moda (en su opinión el vestido negro de satén que lleva cuando canta Put the blame on Mame en la escena del striptease fue "el vestido más famoso que diseñó").

THE WARDROBE
The French born Jean Louis was the designer of the unforgettable gowns Rita wore, some of which have became timeless fashion icons (like the black satin strapless dress she wears when she sings Put the blame on Mame during the  striptease scene which according to his own words was "the most famous dress I ever made")



The famous striptease is worth watch it!!
