    Description

    You Were Never Lovelier (Columbia, 1949). First Post-War Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 55").
    Truth in advertising is born out by the title of this Rita Hayworth vehicle -- she was never lovelier than in this musical comedy co-starring Fred Astaire. A wealthy Argentine family follows the old tradition that daughters must marry in order from the eldest to the youngest, not a problem for the oldest of the girls, but when #2 Maria (Hayworth) spins her wheels, there's pressure from her remaining sisters who already have their spouses picked out. The father engineers a "mystery man" to woo Maria, but is dismayed when an American dancer (Astaire) takes advantage of the deception. Illustrator Anselmo Ballester, also known for his work on the Italian release posters of Affair in Trinidad, Sahara, Knock on Any Door, and the Lady in Question, once again renders a devastatingly beautiful image of Hayworth. This is first time Heritage has presented the Italian 2-foglio, and restoration has addressed a small hole in the left background and Hayworth's shoulder, fold wear and pinholes in the borders. Very Fine- on Linen.
