Tonight And Every Night
Although touted as a "Musical," and it certainly is that...along with the terrific score comes a beautiful and touching story of lives lived moment to moment in war torn London during the Blitz. I see this as a wonderfully done bit of propaganda which was so plentiful out of Hollywood during the war years. This one has an unexpected twist to it near its conclusion which I thought perfectly placed and perfectly reasonable under the premise of the film! Rita Hayworth and Janet Blair are lovely, talented troupers giving their all for servicemen as they sing and dance their way through five shows daily at the Music Box Theater in London. Lee Bowman, plays an RAF pilot and Marc Platt plays a near-sighted but superb dancer and both quickly become the love interests of the leading ladies in this rousing tribute to the tenacity of a troupe of entertainers overseen by the steady and always sturdy Florence Bates. Thoroughly entertaining. This is well worth a look and another and another.
Astaire and Kelly,Make room for Marc Platt
- Dick Hedrick
It took a few scenes to discover Mark Platt as TommyHe moves as well as Kelly or Astaire in my opinion. Heres the question? Who did the split down the slide from the stairs first Tommy/Marc Platt or the Nicholas Bros Stormy Weather?Overall Rating 5 Stars*****
Tonight and Every Night (1945)
- James Higgins
There is nothing extra ordinary about this musical. The plot is familiar, although the London blitz setting is a plus. The musical numbers are good but nothing special, although Rita Hayworths's "Anywhere" number is memorable. Good score. The color cinematography is a plus, overall though it's rather ordinary. Good support from Janet Blair and Florence Bates. Look for a very young Shelley Winters as a chorus girl.
WHOSE HENDERSON IS THIS?
If Barry Phillips is NOT reviewing "Mrs Henderson Presents" -- and it seems that he is not -- the site manager goofs! At least that glorious movie needs mention, and more than mention! As for what he IS reviewing: why is it unhonored and unsung?One further gripe, re: "with a curiously somber/adult tone." Whatever this IS, it must be set in London under the Blitz, no?

Glorious Columbia Technicolor musical with a curiously somber/adult tone. Preposterously beautiful girls, spanking sets, lots of "hurl and twirl" choreography in the wonderful/silly production numbers, and THE Goddess (NO one look as marvelous as Rita in Technicolor!) between COVER GIRL and GILDA. Film is surprising in its ability to draw you in, and mood and songs stay with you (though you may laugh at yourself for humming them the next day). A personal favorite.
