About

Hayworth and Kelly take centre stage in this likeable musical comedy that sees the Titian star as a nightclub dancer whose ambition of becoming a magazine cover girl comes true when an editor discovers her to be the granddaughter of his former love (also played by Hayworth). However, her new-found profile threatens to damage her relationship with dancing mentor Danny (Kelly).

In a nutshell

The story is pretty vacuous and the ending obvious, but it is still pleasant enough viewing with a clutch of toe-tapping tunes courtesy of Gershwin and Kern.
