Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"Classic Musicals Collection: Cole Porter" contains "Kiss Me Kate," "High Society," "Silk Stockings," "Les Girls" and "Broadway Melody Of 1940" "Kiss Me Kate" - Fred and Lilly are a divorced pair of actors who are brought together by Cole Porter who has written a musical version of "The Taming of the Shrew". Of course, the couple seem to act a great deal like the characters they play. A fight on the opening night threatens the production, as well as two thugs who have the mistaken idea that Fred owes their boss money and insist on staying next to him all night. "High Society" - 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 efferevescent 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! "Silk Stockings" - You'd think chilled borscht pulses in her veins. She's Nina Yoshenka, a lovely yet severe Soviet envoy sent to Paris to rescue wayward comrades from the perils of champagne and capitalism. But there may be a thaw in Nina's Cold War. She meets Steve Canfield, a smoothly brash American who won't take nyet for an answer. Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse recapture the magic of their "The Band Wagon" pairing in this musical based on the same-titled 1955 Broadway hit and on the famed 1939 Greta Garbo comedy "Ninotchka." Set to witty Cole Porter tunes, spiked with laughs and featuring the two leads dancing the Eugene Loring-Hermes Pan choreography into timeless emotion, "Silk Stockings" shows why elegance and fun never of out of style. "Les Girls" - Gene Kelly plays Nichols and Mitzi Gaynor, Golden Globe Best Actress winner Kay Kendall and Taina Elg are the femmes in this George Cukor-directed romp that won a Best Costume Design Oscar and another Golden Globe for Best Comedy/Musical. Among the highlights: a ribald "Ladies In Waiting" and a hepcat parody of "The Wild One" called "Why Am I So Gone About That Gal?" You'll be so gone about "Les Girls". "Broadway Melody Of 1940" - The job - a career breakthrough- is supposed to go to hoofer Johnny Brett, but a mix-up in names gives it to his partner. Another example of Broadway hopes dashed? Not when Johnny is played by Fred Astaire. Sparkling Cole Porter songs, clever comedy and dance legends Astaire and Eleanor Powell make the final "Broadway Melody" (co-starring George Murphey) a song to remember. Powell's nautical "I Am The Captain" and Astaire's blissful "I've Got My Eyes On You" are more than enough to please any fan. But they're just a warm-up for the leads to tap one number into immortality: "Begin the Beguine" introduced by Frank Sinatra in "That's Entertainment!" with "You can wait around and hope, but you'll never see the likes of this again!".
