You Were Never Lovelier

Fred Astaire's second film with Rita Hayworth. Taking place in Buenos Aires, Astaire has to choose between Hayworth and his career as a singer. Also starring Adolphe Menjou.

It's a better film than You'll Never Get Rich, with a better constructed script, but the story is still Boy meets Girl, Boy loses Girl, Boy gets Girl in the end (Not that there is anything wrong with that!). It has several good musical numbers, including I'm Old Fashioned and Shorty George. The ending was later ripped off in Pretty Woman.
