Cover Girl

  • Dir: Charles Vidor

  • USA, 1944, 107minmins

  • Cast: Rita Hayworth, Gene Kelly, Lee Bowman

Stars of mythical dimensions in a story of love and misunderstanding across generations. Rita Hayworth, at the peak of her career as dancer and sex symbol, gets to dance with the immortal Gene Kelly in an early stage of his career as a choreographer and actor. The plot is simple: a young singer chooses between her loving Brooklyn bartender (Kelly) and an opportunity for stardom offered by rich Manhattanites (linked, oddly enough, to her grandmother in the gay 90s). Once again, success means choices, even at the altar.
