The brutal holiday weekend Eastern U.S. cold snap was shared with the nation during coverage of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but New Yorkers have a special way to generate heat in the coming days thanks to the invaluable repertory programmers of the downtown Film Forum, which today launched a 10-day centennial seven-day tribute to the revitalizing silver screen phenomenon known as Rita Hayworth (1918-1987), chock-full of choice examples of one of the great movie beauties in her celluloid prime in both lustrous black-and-white and dazzling Technicolor. Showings include two musical marvels that have already sold out their Twilight Time hi-def Blu-ray limited runs, Cover Girl (1944) on Wednesday November 29 and Pal Joey (1957) on Thursday November 30. Two remaining TT musical favorites are also invited to the party: You’ll Never Get Rich (1941), double-billed with her other lively and lovely Fred Astaire collaboration You Were Never Lovelier (1942) on Sunday November 25 and Monday November 26, and Miss Sadie Thompson (1953), a sexy and swinging 3D presentation (just as on TT’s disc in addition to a 2D rendition) on Monday evening November 26.
For fans desirous of experiencing her sublime femininity, unmistakable allure and dancing prowess in larger-than-life proportions, it will be a fabulous source of welcome warmth. If a visit the Big Apple is beyond your reach in this bustling holiday period, then rapturous Rita can visit your home theater to light a fire there in sparkling Blu-ray shape during the label’s extensive limited-time year-end sale via our discs of You’ll Never Get Rich (now at 33% off original list) and Miss Sadie Thompson 3D/2D (even better at a nifty 50% off original list). The latter is exclusively available here: https://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/31901/MISS-SADIE-THOMPSON-1953-2D-and-3D-SPECIAL-PROMOTION/. Should the temperature rise, and other TT bargains interest you while visiting our two sale sites Twilight Time Movies or Screen Archives Entertainment, put the blame on…Rita.
