Plot Synopsis:

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.
