Now Playing - 1944
This magazine ad from 1944 assures us that “Cover Girl” will be pretty spectacular without going into too many details. Rita Hayworth stars, that evidently says it all. What is not said is that her singing is dubbed by Martha Mears. Gene Kelly contributed a lot to the polish of this film. Dependably wry Eve Arden has the wonderful name of “Cornelia ‘Stonewall’ Jackson.” Gotta love that.
Much has been written about poster art from the old movies, but some of the print advertisements were quite artistic as well.
