Thursday, March 26 > 7 PM
MCASD co-presents Charles Vidor’s classic film, Gilda, with San Diego State University’s Department of English & Comparative Literature. Sex-symbol par excellence Rita Hayworth burns up the screen in her signature role as a femme fatale in this 1946 film noir classic. With its cabal of hoods and Nazis, the real magic of Gilda rests on the sexy shoulders of the one-and-only Hayworth who juggles the affections of the men in her life (played by Glenn Ford and George Macready) as a love triangle unfolds against the backdrop of an illegal casino in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Professor Bill Nericcio, chair of SDSU’s Department of English & Comparative Literature, will introduce the film and participate in a post-screening Q&A session with MCASD Film Curator Neil Kendricks.
ADMISSION: $5 MCASD Members, Students, Seniors; $7 General
