Blu-ray Release: You’ll Never Get Rich

Blu-ray Release Date: April 11, 2017
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

The first collaboration between two great musical stars, Fred Astaire (Easter Parade) and Rita Hayworth (Gilda), You’ll Never Get Rich (1941) is part musical show-biz tale, part wartime comedy, with Astaire a Broadway denizen jones-ing for dancer Hayworth.

Tripped up by the depredations of his womanizing boss (Robert Benchley), our hero then winds up drafted – but potentially reunited with his sweetie when he’s enlisted to put on a camp show. Featuring a score by the inimitable Cole Porter, including hit tunes “Since I Kissed My Baby Goodbye” and “So Near and Yet So Far.”

Special features on Twilight Time’s Blu-ray include an isolated music & effects track and an original theatrical trailer.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to head over to the Twilight Time site or that of distributor Screen Archives NOW so you can put in your prebook order!
