Rita Hayworth was Columbia’s biggest star of the 1940s, so it was inevitable that Harry Cohn would decide the added cost of Technicolor was justified for Cover Girl. No expense was spared, including borrowing Gene Kelly from MGM for the co-starring role. Throw in Charles Vidor’s direction, songs by Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin (including “Long Ago And Far Away”), and choreography by Kelly and Stanley Donen. Hayworth plays a dual role: a young model who aspires to be a dancer and, in flashbacks, her grandmother. Cover Girl won the 1944 Academy Award® for Best Musical Scoring and garnered four additional nominations, including Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography. (2K DCP Presentation)
