High Society screening (2018-Aug-20 @ 1:30 p.m.)
Monday, August 20, 2018 @ 13:30–15:17
The Dryden will screen High Society (Charles Walters, U.S. 1956, 107 min., 35mm) as part of the Parties series.
Ice-cold heiress Tracy Lord's (Grace Kelly) attempts to remarry are thwarted by her musician ex-husband Dex (Bing Crosby) and Mike Connor (Frank Sinatra), a reporter covering the wedding. This musical remake of The Philadelphia Story in CinemaScope and color has a sparkling cast and a Cole Porter score to die for that includes "Did You Evah?" Joining the stars are Celeste Holm and the great Satchmo, Louis Armstrong, who duets with Crosby on "Now You Got Jazz."
