Footage of Louis Armstrong from the film was later colorized and digitally inserted into a Diet Coke commercial, to make it seem that Armstrong was "peforming" with Elton John. See more »
When Tracy comes up from below deck in the "True Love" flashback scene, she is wearing blue tennis shoes. Although the dialogue is continuous, she is barefoot in the very next shot, then the shoes appear again, though we never see her take them off (or on). 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."
