An eccentric New York theater owner has his eye on beautiful chorus girl Sheila Winthrop (Rita Hayworth, Gilda). His wife has her eye on him. Sheila has her eye on the show’s choreographer, Robert Curtis (Fred Astaire, Funny Face). Having been discovered, the boss throws Robert into the middle of a comedic cover-up that eventually forces Robert to flee into the Army. Robert will never get rich as a private, but at least he’s out of his predicament – or is he?When Rita Hayworth was paired to star opposite Fred Astaire in the musical comedy YOU’LL NEVER GET RICH, the press speculated that the two might be mismatched. Then Columbia Pictures head Harry Cohn insisted on the pairing, and correctly so. All skeptics were silenced as Hayworth more than proved her dancing abilities, establishing her as one of the best partners Astaire ever had — Ginger Rogers (Top Hat) notwithstanding. She quite literally became Columbia’s hottest property of the ’40s, with LIFE magazine quickly dubbing her “The
They don't make the most obvious screen couple--if you squint, you might think Stan Laurel had gotten together with Lauren Bacall--but their differences only serve to make this effervescent musical all the more entertaining. You'll Never Get Rich is the first of two that Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth made together (followed by You Were Never Lovelier). Astaire, who stars as choreographer-turned-soldier Robert Curtis, has rarely been looser, and Hayworth, as dancer Sheila Winthrop, has rarely been more graceful. As in Royal Wedding, Astaire also engages in some fancy solo footwork. Robert Benchley and Frieda Inescort provide priceless support as Robert's philandering boss and his clever wife, and Cole Porter composed the music, including "So Near and Yet So Far," "Dream Dancing," and the Oscar®-nominated "Since I Kissed My Baby Goodbye." You'll Never Get Rich is timeless, escapist fun that also serves to prove that sometimes opposites don't just attract--they can make beautiful music together. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

The plot of the movie is not so interesting; it shows Astaire as Robert Curtis, a Broadway dance director leaves the stage when he is drafted into the army. Rita Hayworth plays as Sheila Winthrop, a dancing partner of Curtis, and engaged to a captain in the army. Both her fiancée and Curtis serve in the same army camp. When Curtis realizes that he is in love with Sheila Winthrop, hatches a plan to marry her. In the big number "Wedding Cake Walk" the two is supposed to marry on stage and the wedding ceremony is conducted by a real justice of the peace. The trick works and Winthrop suddenly becomes Mrs. Curtis for real, and she accepts that! This somewhat unrealistic considering the fact Sheila is engaged, and in love with her fiancé, Tom Barton (John Hubbard), but she is glad to become the wife of Robert Curtis!!Read more ›
Columbia's DVD has a decent but not outstanding print and includes the original theatrical trailer.
very,very young and so BEAUTIFUL ! Who can believe than Fred Astaire joins the army hiding from HER ? BORED !
Esta es la primera película de Fred y Rita. Hicieron dos. Para Columbia, por supuesto. La segunda está mejor. Fred se ve muy a gusto con Rita. Parece que de todas sus compañeras de baile está fue la mas agradable para él. Ella no era bailarina pero lo hacía muy bien. Y actuaba mejor que cualquiera otra de sus compañeras. Es que Rita poseía una energía tremenda. La música de Cole Porter está bien pero no se compara con la de Kern en la segunda película. La coreografía de Robert Alton es muy buena. A me me parece mejor que la usual de Hermes Pan. Lo único que desentona es ver a Fred en paños menores. Pero la película es muy buena y la secuencia de bailes es muy buena. La copia no está bien restaurada.
