Don't trust the title on this one!
7 September 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short about Cole Porter is included as a special feature for "Kiss Me, Kate"--a play whose score was written by Porter. It's narrated by Ann Miller and has interviews with Katherine Grayson, Howard Keel, Tommy Rall and James Whitmore. It's a very nice special feature to watch if you get the DVD for "Kiss Me Kate", HOWEVER, I have a caveat--it really is NOT specifically about Cole Porter despite the title!! Instead, it's about the play and more about the movie "Kiss Me Kate" with surviving cast members giving their recollections about making the movie. I like this sort of thing--but it's NOT a film about Porter and he's only mentioned at the beginning! It's a case of a film with a very, very poor title. It's a shame, though, as I DID want to learn more about this composer!
