Rita Hayworth was pregnant during production. As a result, the musical numbers were filmed first, before the pregnancy began to show. As filming progressed, great care was taken to hide her growing belly with muffs, furniture and purses. See more »

Hayworth at the height of her Love Goddess allure!
'Tonight and Every Night' gets its title from a London theater that never failed to give a performance despite the constant air raids during the blitz of World War II. The story involves a showgirl (Rita Hayworth) and her romance with a British flyer (Lee Bowman). While the plot is minimal, the lavish technicolor treatment of individual song numbers is impressive and Rita was never photographed more beautifully. No wonder she was labeled "The Love Goddess" -- the camera certainly loved her too!
More serious elements of the plot involve another showgirl (Janet Blair) and her untimely death in a bombing. Of course, in true show biz fashion, it's chin up and the show must go on. Lee Bowman and Marc Platt lend solid support, as well as that dependable character actress Florence Bates as a theater manager. Janet Blair and Rita Hayworth have an amusing war skit routine. If you're a Hayworth fan, this is a must see!
