The goal of the present review is to cross-compare theoretical predictions with selected experimental results on bismuth thin films exhibiting topological properties and a strong Rashba effect. The theoretical prediction that a single free standing Bi(111) bilayer is a topological insulator has triggered a large series of studies of ultrathin Bi(111) films grown on various substrates. Using selected examples we review theoretical predictions of atomic and electronic structure of Bi thin films exhibiting topological properties due to interaction with a substrate. We survey as well experimental signatures of topological surface states and Rashba effect, as obtained mostly by angle- and spin-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy.
