Cover Girl is a nice light-hearted musical that displays humorous songs (I thought "Who's Complaining?" and "Poor John" were the best) and playful dances- one in which Kelly dances with an image of himself. Hayworth executed lip-syncing well, I was surprised to find her voice had been dubbed and it was nice to finally see her dance. The film also starred Eve Arden whose sardonic humor and facial expressions always add a wonderful element to a film.
The score for Cover Girl created by Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin, which featured the Oscar nominated "Long Ago and Far Away", was a major factor in the film's success.
