Gene Kelly Christmas

Cover Girl U

Sat 7 Dec, 1pm

One of Gene Kelly's early films with the fabulous Rita Hayworth, Cover Girl is the tale of a Brooklyn chorus girl given a chance at Broadway stardom after she features on the cover of a magazine.

"The movie approaches magic in its dances, with Kelly staging several wonderful routines – including the famous Alter Ego turn, in which Kelly dances with his own reflection – and finding, in Rita, a perfect partner. Her voice may have been dubbed (by Martha Mears), but she did all her own moves." (Empire)

Dir: Charles Vidor

Cast: Rita Hayworth, Gene Kelly
