Rita Hayworth from BLOOD AND SAND

An amazingly cool, texmextian movie poster from back in the day (Blood and Sand, d. Rouben Mamoulian, 1941) featuring Rita Hayworth, Tyrone Power, and Anthony Quinn (the shot below of Quinn is awesome) has just appeared on the Heritage Auction site--the implicit and explicit sexuality of Margarita Carmen Cansino, aka, Rita, is in full flame. Click the lobby card on the left to make it blow up huge.

I also stumbled upon this promotional photo of Tyrone Power (offering a steely glance that anticipates the undead mug of Dark Shadows' Barnabus Collins) with Hayworth at the same site.

The old YouTube clip I used to stream here featuring Rita as a bullfighter and Tyrone Power as a bull (holy t/sexual semiotics, Batman!) has been yanked by the youtube/google overlords, but you never get too much of a good thing, so here is the original trailer to BLOOD AND SAND--below the trailer appear some stills and screengrabs from the 1941 classic!
