Cyd Charisse Hosts Cole Porter in Hollywood : Satin and Silk
12 June 2006 | by chasmilt777See all my reviews

This 10 minute documentary can be found on the DVD "Silk Stockings" (1957). It is interesting to see Cyd Charisse, who was born in Texas, host this informative short. Her beauty and grace makes the 10 minutes fly. "Silk Stockings" (1957) is the musical version of Greta Garbo's "Ninotchka" (1939). Both are comedies and American film classics.

Also on the "Silk Stockings" DVD, there is a 1934 short with Bob Hope called "Paree Paree". This 21 min. short is a must see for all Bob Hope fans and contains several Cole Porter songs.

I wish all DVD's could include such excellent and historical extras. "The Poet and Peasant Overture" (1955), a 9 min. musical short, is also included. It is performed by the MGM Symphony Orchestra.
