    What a sweet musical -- Fred Astaire playing the shy dancer who's looking for work in South America, Rita Hayworth playing one of a family of sisters with a father who orchestrates everyone's lives. A more unique plot, I thought, paired with good humor and a lovely starring pair made this a joy to watch. 10 years ago

    You Were Never Lovelier is the follow-up to You'll Never Get Rich, more of a proper musical this time with Astaire (Robert) and Hayworth (Maria) falling in love during a dance and singing songs to get their feelings out. It's also got more of a plot, as Maria's father tries to trick her into getting married so he can move on to the next daughter down the line, and Robert accidentally becoming the man all those secret love notes are ascribed to. It's got a strong romcom structure with parental meddling insuring the needed emotional pendulum. The dancing is very strong from both leads, Astaire handing himself one very athletic solo number for god measure, and while I wouldn't call any of the songs particularly memorable, they're all sweet, just like the romance. Rita Hayworth is so lovely - once again - it's a real wonder Astaire never got to work with her again. He was wont to say she was his favorite partner, and they do make a good pair. Oh well. She brightens up the screen with or without him. 3 years 3 months ago
