Gilda (1946) 8/10

Rita Hayworth was sooooo much hotter with blonde hair, eg. in The Lady from Shanghai (although unfortunately, her hair is short in TLFS). Is there any movie in which she has long blonde hair?
What's the one they watch in The Shawshank Redemption?

Are you kidding? She was famous for having red hair. Welles was being perverse by coloring and cutting it (which says something about their personal relationship, no doubt). The are so many Hollywood blondes, we've never needed more, but there have never been enough redheads. The great crime, in fact, is that Hayworth did so many black-and-white films.

yeah, I didn't know that she was a redhead until after I saw the movie and read her wikipedia page -- no way to see that in the b/w movie.

In fact, she wasn't even really a redhead -- it says her father was Spanish (and she presumably had dark hair?) and used his last name and always played ethnic gals until she decided that to broaden her roles, she'd have to be able to play Anglo-American chicks, so she took her mother's last name Hayworth and dyed her hair red and had electrolosis to make her hairline higher (ugh).


Anyway, I am not worrying about how many zillion blondes there are in Hollywood; all I know is that IMO, Hayworth looked much better in blonde (although it was indeed a crime that her hair was cut for The Lady from Shanghai, which btw was a pretty fucking awful movie).

Actually she looked more sexy in TLFS than in any other of her films. Which actually is by far her best film.

Apart from the Blame on Mame scene Gilda is nothing special.

I actually prefer her "Love Me Forever" dance in the white dress, to the Blame on Mame dance in the black dress. (the Blame on Mame song is annoying, but that's beside the point. I prefer the white dress to the black satin one (even though there's no striptease with a glove) and her dancing is pretty clumsy in the Blame on Mame scene. Though the Blame on Mame scene is definitely more famous, I prefer the Love Me Forever scene scene, for the dress, the dance, for every possible reason.

Though with that beautiful face of hers, it wouldn't be boring if she was dancing in a garbage bag to Mary Had a Little Lamb  ;)


-------------
btw, idk wtf the point was, having her dye her hair (from dark?) to red, if she was in b/w movies anyway. The point was I guess to get her looking less Spanish and more America, but you can't tell the difference between dark red and brunette anyway in b/w movies. (Or was it just to convince the producers to cast her as an American?) Idk what her hair color was before it was red; maybe if it was really black, you can tell a difference even in b/w movies. But you can't tell any difference between brunette and dark red.

Anyway.... she was hottest as a blonde. I'm still wondering if she ever did any movies as a long-haired blond?

The Lady Vanishes - 8/10 - Fun early Hitchcock that stretches a silly premise as far as possible. Margaret Lockwood is a charmer and the cricket duo are lots of fun.

"Easy Money" aka Snabba Cash (2010) - 6.5/10
Swedish crime film.

Terminator 2 (1991) - 9/10
The 70mm blow-up looked like a regular 35mm in my eyes, but it was still cool as shit.

7 Psychopaths (2012) 7/10. That's right, seven. There were only 3 in In Bruges, so this film must be WAY better. Actually, if I remember right, one of the psychos this time gets counted twice, but even so, this new one still has twice the psychos as the first. So it's gotta be twice the fun, right?  I can't wait for Martin McDonagh to put 12 psychos in his next picture, the perfect end to his Psychopaths Trilogy. What a vision that man has!

A couple Best Buy exclusives:

You Only Live Twice (1967) 5/10. First Blu-ray viewing. Not the worst Connery Bond (that would be Diamonds Are Forever), but man, this is one silly film. SPECTRE has a rocket-launching installation from which they send capsule-capturing spacecraft into orbit, AND NOBODY KNOWS WHERE IT IS? Further, the cost of running such an operation would have to be, er, astronomical--how can they ever extort enough money from their clients to make it pay?  And since their technology is superior to NASA's, wouldn't it make more sense to run the whole thing as a legitimate company anyway? Who did they get to consult on this project, Dr. Evil? But the ultimate absurdity--Bond turning Japanese! This was the first 007 film to descend into flagrant self-parody, and it's not a pretty sight. That's not the fault of the Blu-ray, though, which, PQ-wise, is stellar.

On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) 7/10. First Blu-ray viewing. Ernst Stavro . . . Savalas? That bit of miscasting aside, there's plenty to like in this film--Diana Rigg, George Lazy-Bee, alpine skiing, Diana Rigg, the best score of the series, Diana Rigg. Perhaps it goes on a little too long. Well, character development (Bond's) was on the cards this time, and that always requires extra time.

With these exclusives, currently going for $9.99, you also get a code that enables you to get 10 bucks off a ticket for Skyfall.

You are asking the wrong questions for a Bond film. But I had the same ideas.

But even without asking one of the weakest Bond films. A routine performance. For me the weakest Connery Bond.
