Critic Reviews for Cover Girl
Dance sequences spotlighting the terping abilities of Hayworth and Kelly are expertly staged.
The whole thing, especially the comic stuff from Silvers and Arden, is executed with considerable brio. And Rudolph Maté's Technicolor photography is faultless.
It has Gene Kelly and Rita Hayworth to sing and dance. And virtually every nook and corner is draped with beautiful girls.
A lush 1944 musical vehicle built for Rita Hayworth at the height of her popularity.
A creaking plot is made bearable by gorgeous colour, the even more gorgeous Hayworth, some oddly unsentimental and unsettling flashbacks with her playing her character's turn-of-the-century grandmother.
Charming musical built on a skimpy plot but boasting a score by Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin that includes some of their best work.
This Oscar-nominated, lavishly produced musical catapulted Gene Kelly and Rita Hayworth to major stardom.
Its familiar tale of an ambitious chorus girl's sudden rise to fame is pleasant enough but not fresh enough to hold my attention.
Great songs, great dancing - an almost-great musical.
Overlooked musical with some great numbers. C'mon, pearl!
The story is pretty vacuous and the ending obvious, but it is still pleasant enough viewing with a clutch of toe-tapping tunes courtesy of Gershwin and Kern.
Audience Reviews for Cover Girl
I love this movie! Especially Gene Kelly's graceful leap into fantasy with the mirrors number. Rita Hayworth proves a surprisingly apt match for the magnificent Kelly (my husband).More
I think there's still a place for some of this in today's cinema. The musical numbers were too long, but that dancing on the street was a lot of fun. Think of what they could do with that Gene Kelly dancing with himself scene today.
Now I know what all the fuss was about in Shawshank. Rita Hayworth is a fox.
