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.
