High Society

High Society is a 1956 American musical comedy film directed by Charles Walters and starring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, and Frank Sinatra. T

he film was produced by Sol C. Siegel for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and shot in VistaVision and Technicolor, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter.

Based on the play The Philadelphia Story by Philip Barry, with a screenplay by John Patrick, the film is about a successful popular jazz musician who tries to win back the affections of his ex-wife, who is preparing to marry another man. The jazz musician encounters additional competition from an undercover tabloid reporter, who is also in love with his ex-wife, who now must choose among three very different men.

High Society was the last film appearance of Grace Kelly, before she became Princess consort of Monaco.

Producer Sol C. Siegel paid Porter $250,000 for his first original film score in eight years;[5] it introduced a couple of pop standards, including "True Love" and "You're Sensational". Not only did Sinatra and Crosby collaborate for the first time,[5][6] but behind the scenes two master orchestrators – Conrad Salinger and Nelson Riddle – melded their arrangements under the baton of Johnny Green. Armstrong and his band get a couple of standout moments and Kelly has her only role in a musical.

    It's wonderful to see movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood on the big screen and imagine how audiences would have viewed them when they were first shown.

    High Society is certainly a gem of a movie with great songs penned by the inimitable Cole Porter. Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Grace Kelly are giants in the Hollywood Hall of Fame and gave brilliant performances.

    Our venue was excellent too and whisks you back in time to an age when there was an intermission between films and ice creams were available to enjoy.

    You can also nip out to the café bar and get a glass of wine or a cup of tea and bring it into the auditorium, which was almost full yesterday evening.

    Don't forget your raffle tickets for the prize draw too - the prizes were exceptionally good.

    All in all, it was a great night out at Theatr Twm o' Nant.
