You Were Never Lovelier Reviews
A traditional Argentinian family has three daughters that are young adults and anxious to get married; however, the father believes in his culture, which requires the daughters to marry in order oldest to youngest. The daughters are all in the love...except the oldest who has been promised to a man who has some reluctance to marry such a fine and wealthy woman. The sisters get behind the older sister hoping they can get in line to get married next if she finds true love.
"Don't frighten with your intelligence."
William Seiter, director of Roberta, Sons of the Desert, Borderline, Little Giant, It's a Pleasure, Champ for a Day, Hired Wife, That Night with You, and Room Service, delivers You Were Never Lovelier. The storyline for this picture was fun in a Little Women kind of way. The main male character, played by Fred Astaire, was charismatic and perfect. The cast as a whole was solid and also included Rita Hayworth, Adele Mara, Adolph Menjou, and Leslie Brooks.
"We're working together again!"
This was recommended to me by Fios so I decided to give it a shot. I haven't seen many Astaire movies and thought this would be a good one. There is some cheese in here, and the plot is very straightforward and predictable, but this does have a nice classic feel that makes it worth a viewing.
