thank you TCM! I used to watch GILDA all the time up until a few years ago, when I stopped watching my dvd collection. Up until a few weeks ago, when TCM aired the film during Noir Fridays, I hadn't seen it in at least four years. And now again tonight!! Every time I see this film I fall in love with Rita all over again.
After watching the Daily Dose of Darkness clip from Gilda, I did a quick search online to learn more about the film (sooo much to unpack with respect to gender, spectacle, the gaze, etc.). In my search, I ran across this essay about representations of homosexuality in film noir. (If you have ever watched The Celluloid Closet, you will already be familiar with many of the article’s ideas.) “Homosexuality and Film Noir” by Richard Dyer http://www.ejumpcut.org/archive/onlinessays/JC16folder/HomosexFilmNoir.html Perhaps we can use this thread to post comments and have *polite* conversa
