About The Event
Few films illustrate the value of looking “beyond the femme fatale” more than Gilda. Rita Hayworth’s performance in the titular role is of course iconic, equaled in the pantheon of femmes fatales only by Barbara Stanwyck’s Phyllis Dietrichson in Double Indemnity (1944). But the hold that Gilda exerts over the men in her life achieves a deeper resonance once we view the film in the light of the woman who produced and co-wrote it: Virginia Van Upp.
