This week’s mystery movie has been the 1942 Columbia picture “You Were Never Lovlier,” the second of two movies to feature Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth. It stars Adolphe Menjou (not shown), Isobel Elsom (Wednesday’s mystery woman), Leslie Brooks (Tuesday’s mystery woman), Adele Mara (Tuesday’s mystery woman), Gus Schilling (Wednesday’s mystery gent) and Xavier Cugat (Thursday’s mystery gent). It was written by Michael Fessier, Ernest Pagano and Delmer Daves, from a story by Carlos Olivari and Sixto Pondal Rios, with music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Johnny Mercer, photographed by Ted Tetzlaff and directed by William A. Seiter.
I rarely do musicals as mystery movies, so I decided to pull this one out of the archives for variety.
I have given up trying to correct mistakes on imdb, but neither Kern nor Mercer are credited, oddly enough.
