Pocas películas tienen tanto trasfondo como Gilda. Detrás la tumultuosa histori de amor a tres que todo el mundo recuerda esta película, y el guante que se quita Rita Hayworth mientras canta “Put the Blame on Mame”, hay una historia muy sórdida: la huida de los mayores criminales del siglo XX.

The transponder of the film

From a real context, Gilda imagining the entanglement of a cortex and oligopoly very powerful during the Second World War, tungsten or tungsten, a ceramic material as durable as the diamond that recuperates weapons and other weapons. Lots of materials were released for military use, and later you were accommodated as civilian material for making bombs and bullets that hit the wall, cortex baldosas and afilan cuchillos.

Gilda ex estrenó en 1946 y fue interpretada por Rita Hayworth (Gilda), George MacReady (Ballin Mundson) y Glenn Ford (Johnny Farrell). The film tells the story of Farrell, a mountaineering jockey who was contracted by the Buenos Aires casino Ballin Mundson to explore the juggling jacks.

As time goes on, Farrell follows through the door of the duo and is always trying to negotiate his way. When Mundson flew past a beautiful woman, Gilda, antigua pareja de Farrell, the most famous amorous triangle coma of the price of their current.

The character of Ballin Mundson uses his alter ego Fritz Thyssenaffiliated with the Nazi and German industrial and German magnates August Thyssendue to the specialized companies that produce weapons and ammunition for the German air force.

Fritz Thyssen worked for the family and baby shower company in the air in 1914 due to poor lung condition. In 1940 he emigrated to France and left for Argentina. Poco se sabe de cuándo llego, pero allí se nacionalizó y vivió hasta su muerte en 1951.

¿Why and how did the Nazis travel to Argentina?

In 1933, a decision was made in Argentina to allow the reunification of families. One set of residence bags can be used to make a living room and a living room. Between 1933 and 1945, there were 7,000 Germans in Argentina, all Jews.

In 1934 a new decree related to tourism was dictated. Individuals traveling in the first class on the boat (those in front of them in the second or third class) must present only a tourism certificate authorized by the Argentine consular authority at the point of embargo and passport. In 1945, 24 German tourists arrived in Argentina by sea.

For many Nazi extremists searching for their allies, transatlantic voyages were the ultimate escape route. The main routes are denominated ratlines (rutas de ratas, flechaduras), which, as in jerga marinera, take the escalators to the cabos that the mariners use to get to the top of the sails, especially when the barge is in place. Era possibly the ultimate mounting option with screw. In the end, the nautical origins of the word result irrationally adequate to the Nazis who invade Europe.

The tungsten quartz or tungsten

Tungsten is a strategic material. The tungsten carburetor is a ceramic compost of granite perteneient to the group of cermets (ceramic metals). It has the highest melting point of all metals (3,422 ºC) and a high density, provided it is thermally stable and chemically stable and has an excellent conductor. In short, it is the most durable material present in nature (devoid of diamond) and is relatively resilient to ambient media.

En Gilda, the character of Ballin Mundson controls the metal core. When an individual apparatus dies in the casino, Mundson has something to improvise. Decide to go to Farrell as hereder and follow the instructions to get your cup of tea, when you find one of the signature cards. Poco después, finge su muerte para evitar ser perseguido.

In the cold tea, Farrell discovered that he inherited a tungsten mine, patent bags, and a bunch of business pieces. They intoned with the other members of the quarters before decirles that nada va a cambiar y, against the protests of algunos de elos, concluded that “only one should be dirigirlos”.

Posteriorly, a German messenger informs Farrell that “the patents are licensed to the principals”, it is said that Mundson was one more in the court. Explanation that Mundon persuasions in order to purchase the patents (and to adhere to the diner) with the condition that the devolviera deprived of the war in a “pact between caballers”.

Mundson se había llevado a Argentina algunas de las patens mé relevant relevant de uso civil. The presence of the messengers and the persecution of the Argentine police hacen suspicion that tal vez alguna de els pudiera tener uso militar.

¿Y al final?

The film recounts a situation –the tungsten cortex– that uses haber ocurrido in real life as part of the stories of German immigrants to Argentina, but does not seem to be a fable. Currently, the major producers of tungsten are Russia, China and Vietnam, but they can not be described as anything more than raw materials (including rare minerals).

In the pantaloon, when Mudson finge su muerte, Gilda, ya viuda, se casa con Farrell. Due to variations in infidelity and discourse between the new pair, they are reconciled. Pero Mundson los descubre cuando aparece por sorpresa. Al intentar atacarlos, es asesinado.

The Argentine police have, as a matter of course, been investigating the case. After Farrell’s pussy where the indie dónde is the strong tea. Farrell se deskubre y se interpreta all the documents of the quarter which in the manos of the police, mentras la pareja se mantiene unit. An acceptable end to the amorous triangle that is the central trauma of the film.

I hope that the final part of this article will be read aloud Gilda the attachment of the film to the incubator of a media player in the absolute status of a quarter in the case of the Nazi German Nazis.
