Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: [in a bomb shelter] Scared?
Rosalind Bruce: Naturally.
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: So am I.
Rosalind Bruce: Well, that's not very comforting. That's like having a lifeguard say he's afraid of the water.
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: Oh, I don't mean this. I mean you. You did a little bombing tonight yourself, you know. That dance you did...
[imitates whistling of falling bomb]
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: In fact, you bombed from a very low altitude. It's not only unfair, it's practically illegal.
Rosalind Bruce: Well, I'm sorry.
Squadron Leader Paul Lundy: You should be.
Rosalind Bruce: I hope I didn't hit anything vital.

an enchantress in wartime London
1 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rita Hayworth is an American performer during the blitz in "Tonight and Every Night." The film is based on the true story of a theater that kept going during the horrific bombings London suffered, unlike other theaters, which closed their doors. In the film, a photographer from Life arrives to do a feature about the theater and hears a story about Rita and friends from a stagehand.

What a gorgeous woman and dancer Rita was, and what charisma! She sparkles on the screen and is stunningly beautiful in this Technicolor film. She looks like her magazine covers - perfect. Lee Bowman is her leading man, Janet Blair plays her best friend, and Marc Platt, a Broadway dancer who is an absolute dynamo, plays a fellow performer.

There really isn't much to this script, except that there's a somewhat unexpected plot twist and the ending isn't as expected. We're looking in one direction while the script goes in another. There are some nifty production numbers and some pretty songs - better, I think, than those found in another Hayworth vehicle, Down to Earth.

Rita's voice is always dubbed, but I wonder if she could sing or could have sung with some training. Guess we'll never know.

Seeing Rita is always worth it.
