Look for the Silver Lining is a 1949 musical biography film directed by David Butler and written by Phoebe Ephron, Henry Ephron and Marian Spitzer. It is a biography of Broadway singer-dancer Marilyn Miller. It stars June Haver and Ray Bolger.[2] It was nominated for an Academy Award for best scoring for a musical picture in 1950. Although the film was popular and made a profit, Haver's performance of Marilyn Miller has been somewhat overlooked in comparison to the more memorable portrayal of Miller by Judy Garland in Till the Clouds Roll By, the 1946 MGM musical biography of the composer Jerome Kern. The film was released by Warner Bros. on July 30, 1949.[3]
