When her mother breaks the news about Spy magazine coming to her wedding, Tracy is telling her mother she really thinks her mother is sorry she ever let her father go. She drops her arms to her side and turns her back completely on her mother, her arms swinging. In the reverse angle, she is only half turned and her hands are coming up to her hips. See more »
The unbeatable talents of three legendary stars in a nice musical comedy
"High Society" unites the unbeatable talents of three legendary stars Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong with the beautiful and talented Grace Kelly in her final role before she becomes the loving Princess of Monaco
Spoiled Tracy (Kelly) is about to marry a boring businessman John Lund, but on the eve of her nuptials, her ex-husband Crosby, who still calls her Sam, returns to try and put a stop to the wedding
On hand to cover her upcoming nuptials for a spy magazine are journalists Celeste Holm) and Sinatra, with the greatest American jazz musician Louis Armstrong providing with Crosby a musical jazz called "Now You Has Jazz."
Armstrong opens the film from the back of the blue bus shared with his band, with a calypso song, while the classic "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" is lively sung by Sinatra and Holm alone in a big room filled with Kelly's many extravagant wedding gifts
Kelly is lovely as the refined woman flirting with three men In scenes that required the softening of her unyielding nature, she seems so reserved and cold in manner
Sinatra sings to her "You're Sensational" and "Mind if I Make Love to You? Crosby sings "True Love."
