Plot Summary

De-Lovely is an original musical portrait of American composer Cole Porter, filled with his unforgettable songs. In the film, Porter is looking back on his life as if it was one of his spectacular stage shows, with the people and events of his life becoming the actors and action onstage. Through elaborate production numbers and popular hits like "Anything Goes," "It's De-Lovely," and "Night and Day," Porter's elegant, excessive past comes to light - including his deeply complicated relationship with his wife and muse, Linda Lee Porter.

Quotes Monty Woolley: Cole, he's only an actor but he still may be right. He's tried it 7 times already, the song's a problem.
Cole Porter: The song is not a problem, it's a challenge. Jack! Jack my boy, how can I help you? Ask me anything.
Jack: Write another song.
Cole Porter: Oh God, that cuts me right to the quick. I know it's God awful but it's the best I can do and we open in three days.
Jack: Where do you get your ideas?
Cole Porter: I get them all from a little Chinese man in Poughkeepsie.
Jack: Mr Porter, the song goes so high and so low it's impossible.
Cole Porter: It's not impossible. I wrote this with you in mind, I can sing it and I have a range of three notes.
