For those who are following the movie marathon: in the movie The Shawshank Redemption, while Red and the prisoners are watching the movie Gilda, Andy requests that Red acquire a poster of Rita Hayworth, the star of Gilda. Andy has to wait before asking because Red doesn’t want to miss an impending scene featuring a famous hair flip. Andy eventually gets the poster; the reason for which he desires it becomes apparent later in the movie.

So, on the strength of that I watched Gilda.
Someone described it a dark reflection of Casablanca, which is pretty accurate.

Anyway, I promised you suspect relationship advice from Hayworth’s character Gilda.
It’s not much of a spoiler, just don’t put it into practice.

“Isn’t it wonderful? Nobody has to apologize, because we were both stinkers, weren’t we? Isn’t it wonderful?”
