rita Hay­worth is at her most shim­mer­ing and sen­sual in the film that made her an icon. Glenn Ford plays a con man/gam­bler who is taken in by mys­te­ri­ous casino owner Ge­orge Macready and given the job of right-hand man. Ev­ery­thing is work­ing out just fine for Ford –un­til he meets his new boss’s wife, Hay­worth… The plot is ‘noir ob­vi­ous’ – but this film is more than the sum of its parts. Much more.
