“It rainbows the screen with dazzling décor. It has Gene Kelly and Rita Hayworth to sing and dance. And virtually every nook and corner is draped with beautiful girls.”
—The New York Times
“Surefire showmanship…fine and consistently paced direction…Dance sequences spotlighting the terping abilities of Hayworth and Kelly are expertly staged…Score by Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin…is of high caliber.”
The lavish Technicolor extravaganza, Cover Girl (1944), is a landmark in Hollywood musical history: the first to integrate songs (by the superb team of Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin) with narrative; the incandescent Rita Hayworth’s first musical in color; and the first in which the iconic Gene Kelly was allowed full choreographic charge of his own dance numbers, devised with once and future collaborator, Stanley Donen. Directed by Charles Vidor and shot by Rudolph Maté, the film is a backstage romance between a nightclub owner (Kelly) and his favorite dancer (Hayworth), who catches lightning in a bottle when she wins a magazine cover girl contest and overnight becomes the toast of New York.
