Following Ford's military service in World War II, his film career took off with a plum assignment opposite pinup girl Rita Hayworth in Gilda (1946), a role that led to more pairings with the auburn-haired starlet and other Hollywood beauties.
After receiving several nominations, Ford finally won a Golden Globe for his performance in Frank Capra's Pocketful of Miracles (1961) and went on to star alongside a young Ron Howard in The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963) and as the Man of Steel's mortal father in Superman: The Movie (1978). He turned in several small-screen performances in the 1980s and '90s and died in 2006 at the age of 90.
Curvy bombshell Rita Hayworth "Puts the Blame on Mame" in this South American thriller that became her biggest hit and forever linked the stunning actress to the specter of her most popular character. Hayworth, Glenn Ford and George Macready comprise the three sides of a steamy love triangle that threatens to destroy Macready's thriving casino and wreck all of their lives. Hayworth's sinuous vamp of the aforementioned tune is a classic moment.
