30 Beautiful Photos of Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth During the Filming of ‘You Were Never Lovelier’ (1942)

You Were Never Lovelier is a 1942 American musical romantic comedy film directed by William A. Seiter and starring Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth. The supporting cast also features Adolphe Menjou, Xavier Cugat and Adele Mara. The music was composed by Jerome Kern and the lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The picture was released by Columbia Pictures and includes the elaborate “Shorty George” song and dance sequence.

The film, a Hollywood remake of the 1941 Argentine romantic comedy Los martes, orquídeas (On Tuesdays, Orchids), is set in Buenos Aires. It was the second of two films starring the duo of Astaire and Hayworth, following the box-office success of the previous year’s You’ll Never Get Rich.

The film follows the usual conventions established by Astaire in his earlier musicals, such as an anti-romantic first meeting between the two leads, a virtuoso dance solo for Astaire, a playful dance duet and a romantic dance duet.

These beautiful photos captured portraits of Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth together during the filming of You Were Never Lovelier in 1942.
