Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Fred Astaire, Rita Hayworth and Adolphe Menjou star in this lavish 1942 musical set in Buenos Aires. Astaire plays a down-on-his-luck dancer who romances an elegantly cool Hayworth against the wishes of her suspicious father, Menjou. A remake of an Argentine film "The Gay Senorita", "You Were Never Lovlier" was a follow-up to the 1942 hit "You'll Never Get Rich", and marked the last screen pairing of Astaire and Hayworth. In "You Were Never Lovelier", she proves once again to be a stunning dancer, especially in "Shorty George" and "I'm Old Fashioned", a sensuous moonlit duet with Astaire that is the high point of the film. Like Astaire, Hayworth was a perfectionist and they spent days going over each number. It was difficult to find sufficient rehearsal space on Columbia's stages, so the studio rented a funeral parlor at a nearby Hollywood cemetery. Every time a funeral came through, rehearsals would stop until the mourners left! Their perfectionism paid off, however, in elegant and precise dance sequences. The score also received an Academy Award(R) nomination, along with nominations for Best Sound and Best Song ("Dearly Beloved") by Jerome Kern and Johnny Mercer. Hayworth wanted to do her own singing, but her voice was dubbed by Nan Wynn - a well-kept secret at the time. Nevertheless, Hayworth has gone on record saying that "You Were Never Lovelier" was the favorite of all her films, second only to "You'll Never Get Rich".

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Loved it I own all ten of the Fred & Ginger CD's, but this movie exceeded all tje Fred & Ginger movies except maybe the Barclay's of Broadway which I would say makes it about a tie. If you enjoy Fred Astaire you will want to own this DVD. 10/06/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Absolutely WONDERFUL movie! Oh, my goodness! I did not know until seeing the prequel, that Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth were such a dynamic duo! ALSO: The story line was just great and quite funny plus romantic.This is one DVD I will watch again and again! 05/12/2013
