"...The prototypical Rita Hayworth musical...[with] knockout d├ęcor and cinematography..."

Product Description:

Rusty Parker (Rita Hayworth) longs to leave behind her job as a Brooklyn dancer and be a Broadway star. Things begin to look up for her when she enters a "Cover Girl"
contest--she reminds the wealthy publisher of a lost love, and lands on the cover. As fate would have it, she is the granddaughter of the woman who broke the publisher's heart. Thus, Rusty begins a winning streak which sees her gathering the attentions of several wealthy men...but is it really the faithful Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly) whom she loves' This very funny Kern and Gershwin music features many lavish production numbers featuring the stunning Hayworth, great dancing by Kelly, and strong supporting roles from Phil Silvers and Eve Arden. Academy Award Nominations: 5. Academy Awards: Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.

Plot Keywords:

1940s | Adventure | Rags To Riches | Romance | Tear Jerker

Production Notes:

  • This film features the innovative "Alter-Ego" musical number, in which Kelly dances with his own image. According to co-choreographer Stanley Donen, director Charles Vidor didn't believe it was technically possible to accomplish what Donen and Kelly envisioned. So Donen himself took charge of the sequence -- his first shot at directing.
  • Color by Technicolor.
  • Additional credits: John Hoffman (montages and cover girl presentation); P.J. Faulkner (music recording)
