Femmes Fatales, Innocents and Intrigantes: Can the Costume Design of Film Noir Tell Us the Difference?” (60 min.)
From Ava Gardner and Lana Turner to Veronica Lake and Rita Hayworth, film, costume and fashion historian Kimberly Truhler takes us on an exploration of the iconic costume design of film noir–as well as its ongoing influence–to see if signs of character can be found within the wardrobes of the genre’s bad girls, good girls, and those somewhere in between. Followed by GILDA at 3:15 pm.

GILDA (1946, Sony Repertory, 110 min., USA, Dir: Charles Vidor)
Put the Blame on Mame! GILDA put Glenn Ford on the map as one of the unique leading men of his generation, and helped elevate Rita Hayworth to Hollywood superstardom in the 1940s. Rita stars as the sultry, torch-singing wife of a South American casino owner (George Macready), who finds herself in serious hot water when she re-connects with former flame Ford. “This is Gilda, Beautiful Deadly, Using all a Woman’s Weapons – in Love – and for Revenge.”
Co-presented by the American Cinematheque & the Art Deco Society
