Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
You'll Never Get Rich is not the greatest film that either Fred Astaire or Rita Hayworth ever made, but it's an enjoyably silly flick that offers some interesting attractions. The stars are the main asset, of course. This was the first of their two onscreen pairings, and while the script doesn't develop their characters as much as one might hope, there's a definite chemistry at work between the two. This is especially clear during their musical numbers, naturally, when Hayworth's friendly sex goddess aura meshes beautifully with Astaire's air of sophistication. Hayworth is even a better dancer than Ginger Rogers, no mean feat, although she lacks a little of the fire that Rogers brought to the team. Not that Hayworth isn't capable of letting Astaire's character have it with both barrels when necessary; it's just that the anger somehow seems less personal to her. Astaire has a great time with his role, enjoying the chance to play someone less gentlemanly than usual, and he's in good vocal form as well. Cole Porter's score is serviceable, with "So Near and Yet So Far" considerably more than that. The script is a bit of a patchwork quilt -- some allegedly comedic sequences in particular don't hold up -- but as long as the stars (and co-star Robert Benchley) are around, Richis engaging entertainment.

    Astaire and Hayworth In A Vintage Columbia Programmer

    'You'll Never Get Rich' is the first of two musicals Fred Astaire made with Columbia's resident bombshell - Rita Hayworth and although it's light, breezy and brimming to the ceiling with comedy and music - ironically, there's not much for the lovely Ms. Hayworth to do, except tap one solo and dance all too briefly in a contrived finale with Astaire. The plot focuses on Robert Curtis¿s (Astaire) employer ¿ Robert Cortland (Robert Benchley), whose roving eye gets him in perpetual hot water with his wife (Frieda Inescort). Currently, both Roberts have their eye on Sheila (Hayworth). The unlikely affair begins, then stops, then starts up again when Sheila realizes she's falling in love - not with Benchley¿s Robert, but Astaire¿s. To get Astaire¿s Robert out of the picture, Benchley¿s Robert makes certain that he¿s drafted into the army ¿ an error in judgment that Benchley spends the next two hours trying to rectify. How's it end? - with music, fun and good humor; all main staples of the Hollywood film musical at its zenith. Considering the lack luster transfers that Columbia has been giving classic film buffs of late (Talk of the Town, You Can't Take It With You, The Awful Truth) ¿You¿ll Never Get Rich¿ is above par! The gray scale is accurately rendered - though several scenes look as though second or third generation film elements were used instead of an original camera negative. There is a definite grain structure present but apart from that, the usual aliasing, edge enhancement and pixelization that has accompanied many Columbia titles is thankfully absent herein. The audio is MONO but very nicely balanced and - for its vintage - natural sounding. There are no extras.

    Fun!

    It's lovely to see Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth in thier first film together. The plot is a little bit thin, but in a Fred Astaire film when does that matter?! Spectacular dances and sparkling humor make 'You'll Never Get Rich' well worth the watch.
