    Description

    You Were Never Lovelier (Columbia, 1942). Insert (14" X 36").
    The title says it all --Rita Hayworth was never lovelier than in this film (her personal favorite), creating some of the best screen chemistry ever with the dashing Fred Astaire. The beautiful pair sing and dance effortlessly, mesmerizing audiences for generations. The music by Jerome Kern features two memorable pieces, "Dearly Beloved" and "I'm Old Fashioned", the first of which serves as a sort of theme to the film. The insert offered here includes a magnificent portrait of Hayworth with two smaller images of her dancing with Astaire, and a playful caricature of bandleader Xavier Cugat. Prior to restoration the piece showed a small tear in the bottom border and top section, and fold wear. Gel backing has this gem looking crisp, clean and display-ready. Fine+.
