Model behavior

I watched Cover Girl last night -- I can't help it, I'm a sucker for Rita Hayworth. And musicals. And old movies. Even given those odds, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. While I've always liked the aforementioned things, I've never been big on the dance/musical movies of the '40s -- you know, Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire and some extremely slight plot that involves dancing with a coat rack/lamp post/umbrella -- but this one got me. It helped that, in addition to Rita, Eve Arden as Stonewall Jackson was brilliant. While not quite the searing look into modeling that, say, America's Next Top Model provides, it was wholly worthwhile.
