Storyline

The fictionalized biography of composer Cole Porter from his days at Yale in the 1910s through the height of his success to the 1940s. The film's attempted biography matches many public myths surrounding Cole at the time, despite its lack of relationship with truth. For instance, truth and movie are different in regards to: his sex life (he was a gay man in a marriage of convenience with a divorcee friend), his relationship with his wife, Monty Wooley was a contemporary (not Professor), and his French military experience was a hoax.

Trivia

Because of strict censorship imposed by the era's Studio Production Code, no mention at all is made of Cole Porter's real-life open homosexuality, or the fact that his marriage to Linda Lee Thomas, though caring and convivial, was not a romantic or sexual one. See more »

Goofs

When in England, there are street performers singing "Rosalie". The accordion player's hands never press the keys, in fact his right hand is static throughout the whole scene. See more »

Quotes

Skip Delovely and Catch this One again
9 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After suffering through "Delovely", I had to feel good again about Cole Porter's music. Where Delovely focuses on Porters Homosexuality, a subject that Night and day ignores, Night and day performs his music in brilliant fashion. Forget the corny fictionalized screenplay and just sit back and enjoy:

Mary Martins version of My Heart Belongs to Daddy.

Cary Grant singing "Your The Tops".

Cole Porter's stirring "Night and Day", "Begin the Beguine". A song that Delovely totally butchers.

"It was Just One of Those Things" The Haunting "In the Still of the Night"

And so many more.

This is strictly for Cole Porter's music. If your interested in how he enjoyed his spare time, Delovey is for you. For me, I just enjoy his music.
