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.

'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.
