Affair in Trinidad

An exceedingly rare and vibrant poster for the Finnish release of Rita Hayworth's 1952 film noir Affair in Trinidad. The movie marked Hayworth's return to the screen after a three-year absence during her marriage to Prince Aly Khan, and a reunion with her Gilda co-star Glenn Ford.

Hayworth starred as a nightclub performer who enlists her brother-in-law to track down her husband's killer. Based on the design of the US One Sheet, artist Engel offered a masterclass in Warholian simplicity when he captured Hayworth in full bombshell mode during her fiery opening dance number.
