Christmas Film and Party Night : Tonight !
Dartmouth Film Society says:
Please come and join us for our Christmas Party, with a free
buffet (including a complimentary drink on arrival) and a
showing of the classic musical comedy High Society starring
Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra:
MGM's bold idea to remake George Cukor's Oscar-winning
upper-class romantic farce, The Philadelphia Story, into a
star-studded Technicolor musical with Cole Porter tunes
somehow works splendidly and remains an underrated gem. Even
the plot and character names--and some bits of dialogue--all
remain the same as the original. Crooning Bing Crosby
replaces Cary Grant as the wealthy ex-husband trying to win
back his soon-to-be-remarried ex-wife, spoiled ice queen
Tracy Lord (Grace Kelly, stunning and aloof in her last film
role, originated in the earlier comedy by Katherine Hepburn).
Unlike Grant, however, Crosby has jazz great Louis
Armstrong, playing himself, in his corner for quixotic
persuasion. Frank Sinatra (cocky in James Stewart's former
role) and Celeste Holm add support as the nosy reporters
covering, and subsequently complicating, the upcoming
wedding. Sure, High Society lacks the original's witty
satire, sarcasm and character complexity; but it's assuredly
paced and wonderfully acted, and contains enough romantic
chemistry to keep the plot engaging. And then there's the
