Grace Kelly – High Society

The last article had the very beautiful Hedy Lamarr – the film ‘High Society’ has the equally lovely Grace Kelly

MGM were able to secure the talents of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Celeste Holm, and Louis Armstrong for this great musical adaption of The Philadelphia Story.

Frank Sinatra got a couple of good ballads in You’re Sensational and Mind If I Make Love to You, but what he’s best remembered for is that classic ‘Well Did You Ever’ duet with Bing Crosby

Cole Porter contributed a great original score for this film with songs written to suit the talents of High Society’s stars

For this film, the story is reset from Philadelphia to Newport, Rhode Island to bring in the famous Jazz Festival.
