Description
The rich are generally different. But in matters of the heart, they're just as scatterbrained as the rest of us.

Heiress Tracy Lord (Grace Kelly) is engaged to one man (John Lund), attracted to another (Frank Sinatra) and, just maybe, in love again with her ex-husband (Bing Crosby) in this effervescent musical reinvention of Philip Barry's play The Philadelphia Story featuring an endlessly delightful Cole Porter score. Among High Society's high points: Sinatra and Celeste Holm ask "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?", Crosby and Kelly share "True Love", Der Bingle and Ol' Blue Eyes swing-swing-swingle "Well, Did You Evah?", and Crosby and Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong jive with "Now You Has Jazz". Yes, indeedy, we has!

      This re-make of The Philadelphia Story made in color
      featuring songs by Noel Coward and sung by Bing and Frank AND the soon to be Princess Grace Kelly. It is a picture of "True Love" and the boat scene and song still permeates my memory of a more naive time and youthful days. Then there is Satchmo and "That's Jazz" sung by him and Bing. A wonderful flick for all ages and THE ages.

        Comments about this product:

        High Society is a re-make of The Philadelphia Story which starred Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Jimmy Stewart. I bought this movie because of Grace Kelly. She's a very classy lady in the few films that she did prior to her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco. This film version is more of a musical version with several songs. The love song that Grace Kelly sings is very beautiful and in one of the books I read about her the directors had wanted her voice dubbed but she insisted that she sang the song herself and supposedly took voice lessons. My favorite part in the movie is when she's laying on the couch staring at her huge engagement ring, blowing on it, and then wiping it against her outfit to make it shine more. I did read that she supposedly asked to wear her own engagement ring from Prince Rainier as they were recently engaged. Very cute scene. I'm honestly not a huge Frank Sinatra or Bing Crosby fan (who also starred with Grace in "The Country Girl") and bought this movie for Grace Kelly alone. Overall, it's an okay film. I also read that Prince Rainier and his father both visited Grace while on set and weren't impressed with her co-workers and those associated with the film when they made a comment about how small Monaco is. I did read this may be why Grace never did another film again after this one, with the exception of one she did just before she died which was never released.

                    It is too bad that this is billed as a Frank Sinatra movie on the DVD box, since Bing was the top billed star in his last GREAT musical.
