Containing "Gilda" "Circus World" "Miss Sadie Thompson" "Salome" " The Lady From Shanghai" "You'll Never Get Rich" This is an extremely fair representation of Rita Hayworth's most famous role's. Gilda is a superb film noir from 1946 which catapulted Rita Hayworth into super stardom for good reason, she sizzles alongside Glenn Ford as a bad girl who if she had been a saloon wouldve been "called the bar nothing!", Circus World is one of those Big Top Drama's involving John Wayne and Claudia Cardinale with Rita as Cardinale's long lost mother who ran away years before, she gives a sensitive performance in what is otherwise a bit of a dud. Miss Sadie Thompson was Rita's return to Columbia after she divorced Prince Aly Khan and contains a fruity portrayal of the well worn classic with Rita performing "The Heat is On", Salome also from 1953 is a very classy Sword and Sandal Epic perfect for a Sunday afternoon co-starring Charles Laughton as the vile King Herod and Judith Anderson as Herodias. Rita is of course Salome and her version of the Dance of the Seven veils is fantastic. The Lady From Shanghai is Orson Welles classic noir from 1948 when he famously chopped off Hayworths Red Hair and made her a blonde! It works beautifully and is a gorgeous addition to the collection. "You'll Never Get Rich" is from 1941 when Rita was a burgeoning star and casts her opposite Fred Astaire as a young dancer. Their initial Tap Routine is fantastic. If you are a fan of classic films but havent experienced Hayworth yet this is a good place to start!

As if set out to prove there never was a woman like Rita Hayworth herself (as opposed to the tagline for Gilda), her very own box-set in the 'Screen Godesses' collection is her most essential package yet. Her signature role as the femme fatale Gilda has lost none of its steam and sizzling charisma: her dancing alone transforming the title into much more than what was only set out to be another Columbia B-style picture for Hayworth to star. That is to say, now on to a good thing with their 1 and only genuine star, the studio had very little in the way of titles suitable for her. Things would change after the success of 'Gilda'. Her next film released would be 'Down To Earth' but 'The Lady From Shanghai' has became the most critically acclaimed of all her films as time has went by, and it is not hard to see why. Hayworth is the gelid blonde Elsa, and her performance her most icy and lingering. This set does well to avoid repeating the contents as her previous collection, and we get the first of her pairings with Fred Astaire, 'You'll Never Get Rich'. ALthough it is arguably inferior to it's 'sequel' it is nevertheless great fun to see 2 great stars working their magic as if it were no great effort at all. However, some titles are just too essential in her career to ommit for purposes of appealing to the casual fan, and 'Miss Sadie Thompson' certainly has the lady in fine mode. It was her first big chance, Shanghai notwithstanding, to show what she was really made of. Critics applauded her like never before, for now experience was matching her looks, and it could no longer be denied Ms Hayworth was a rather fine actress to match the best of them.Read more ›

Format: DVD
These six films are a fine tribute to Rita Hayworth, an archetypical screen goddess leading a turbulent off screen life encompassing at least five marriages (all very short). Originally a professional dancer who progressed to films she was never a great actress and is summed up in her own quote, "Every man I have known has fallen in love with Gilda and wakened with me". All her songs were dubbed by other singers, a usual practice in those days. Her career declined during the sixties (being replaced at Columbia by Kim Novak) and sadly she died suffering from Alzheimer's disease in 1987.

GILDA (1946) - Hayworth's finest films, and she is absolutely stunning throughout, and the only film in the box where she looks consistently beautiful.

With great acting from Glen Ford and George Macready, beautiful photography and a dark love triangle that grips you for every second.

SALOME (1953) - is entertainment not biblical epic, bright and colourful and frankly pretty feeble, only saved by two fine performances.

A vehicle for Rita Hayworth, lovely and remote befitting a screen goddess, but the dance of the seven veils is a joke, I have seen more erotic performances in Richard Strauss's opera Salome.

By far the best performances are from Charles Laughton as a lascivious Herod, outstanding as he salivates with desire over Salome and Judith Anderson as his queen, an enjoyable and really nasty couple

The remainder of the strong cast never achieve better than adequate, probably a reflection on the screen play and direction rather than the actors.
