No Ifs, Ands or Bust

When Gilda premiered, the press round-up
asked Rita just what kept her gown up
"Two very good reasons, "
she said, "I would squeeze in,
and both were strategic'lly bound up."

Rita Hayworth was liquid satin in Gilda (Charles Vidor, 1946).

In those black satin drop-dead pajamas
she's the last of the redheaded mommas
That inky foundation's
a slinky sensation
No ifs, ands or buts, just some commas!
