Bottom of the barrel

You'll Never Get Rich (1941), entertaining but very slight, contains low forms of comedy, plus high-quality dancing, courtesy of Fred and Rita. Cole Porter dug deep for these songs, not one of which has become a standard. The most delirious number features Boogie-Woogie service brides and a three-tiered tank prop. Among uncredited musicians are Martha Tilton and Chico Hamilton.
