Slink into Noirvember at Vidiots and don’t forget to put the blame on Mame, boys! Rita Hayworth scorches the screen in this flaming hot Film Noir. Love, hate, jealousy, and dirty money intermingle in Argentina as a small-time gambler begins working for the husband of his old flame. Barbs and sparks fly between Hayworth and Ford as they navigate their love-hate relationship through dagger-sharp dialogue and undeniable chemistry. Hayworth is beyond mesmerizing throughout, but particularly dazzling in a series of provocative musical numbers demonstrating her decades of dance training and her lithe and effortless body movement. It would be a crime to miss this sultry classic.
