Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hal Erickson
Based on an Argentinian film of the 1930s, the plot of You Were Never Lovelier is as forgettable as it is frothy. So forget the storyline and revel in the Astaire-Hayworth dance duets, the specialty numbers by bandleader Xavier Cugat and the Jerome Kern-Johnny Mercer score, including such standards-to-be as "Dearly Beloved" and "I'm Old Fashioned."

    Astaire is Astaire and Hayworth is beautiful

    While this is certainly not one of Fred Astaire's great musicals it is worth seeing if only to oogle Rita Hayworth. It is also great to see Adolphe Menjou one of the best character actors ever. A lot of fun.

    Your Were Never Lovlier

    Pleasant to watch. Rita Hayworth looked beautiful. Fred Astaire showed his usual dance talent.
