The Lovely Rita Hayworth
I'm such a sucker for old movies. I find them a lot more interesting than anything current. I happened to catch the movie "Cover Girl" on TCM. I instantly fell in love with the beautiful costumes Rita Hayworth wore. The movie is definitely worth watching for those who love glamour.
Rusty Parker (Rita Hayworth) is a dancer at nightclub owned and operated by her boyfriend Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly). She learns of open auditions to be the Golden Wedding Girl for Vanity's 50th Anniversary issue, and eventually gets the coveted position. Her newfound popularity puts the nightclub on the map, but also puts strain on her relationship with Danny. He opts to not stand in her way, intentionally arguing with her one day so she will split up with him. Rusty's continuing rise to stardom leads to a courtship from the wealthy Noel Wheaton (Lee Bowman) and a Broadway show, but she still cannot get Danny off her mind.
