Down to Earth (1947)

Written by talisencrw on September 23, 2016

I got this in a cheapo 5-film 'Rita Hayworth' boxed set, as I quite enjoy checking out the filmographies, as completely as I can, some of my favourite actors, actresses and directors from days gone by (pre-1970s cinema is clearly my favourite, though I enjoy cinema from all eras and around the world). This was an interesting though flawed comedy, with Hayworth playing a Greek goddess, pissed off that a playwright isn't doing Greek mythology justice--and pays an unexpected visit clear on settling the score.

Her singing numbers are dubbed, but she looks remarkable. The film is a tad long in the tooth but is nevertheless quite enjoyable.
