This week, we watch the amazing Rita Hayworth in Gilda!
We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because Rita Hayworth truly must be witnessed. The film is readily available for rental on streaming services such as Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, Google Play, and YouTube. It is also available with subscription to FilmStruck.
Note: as you will soon be able to tell while listening to the episode, our recording session was interrupted by everything. Dogs! Phones! Husbands! Pizza guy! We apologize. In spite of all that, please join us again on May 21st, when we go back to Clouzot with a viewing of Diabolique!
