Recreating Gilda

As some of my longtime readers may recall, I listed the poster for George Vidal's 1946 film noir Gilda as the 17th best of all time (please note, that list is most certainly outdated - or, at least, the lower rungs are). Gilda is getting a cinematic re-release in England - lucky sods - and with it comes a gorgeous new quad poster from Park Circus.


Utilising that iconic pose of Rita Hayworth's, but ramping up the noir with a striking contrast of black and white. It's beautiful to look at, don't you think? As a matter of fact, Gilda has produced many memorable posters thanks to Hayworth's striking imagery. Check out some of my favourites below.



Which is your favourite?

Fascinating! I only saw Gilda for the first time quite recently, and LOVED it, and gushed about it here:
