One of My Favorite Movies...High Society

When I was going through an obsession of Grace Kelly years ago and spent a fortune at Blockbuster renting all her movies, I came across the delighful flick High Society. The movie is actually a musical version of The Philadelphia Story starring Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. Set in Newport, Rhode Island, the movie has Grace Kelly playing Tracy who is about to marry George but her ex-husband Dexter played by Bing Crosby is determined to win her back. Reporter Mike played by Frank Sinatra comes to cover the wedding and ends up falling in love with her as well. All sorts of drama ensues.









The acting and singing in this movie are superb but it is also worth watching to see all of Grace Kelly's clothes. They are stunning. Another thing to catch your eye is the huge rock she is wearing in the film. I read that it was actually her real engagement ring to Prince Rainier. You cant't miss it..

One of the highlights of the film, a witty duet with Frank and Bing..

just LOVE this movie! I'm trying to save mine for when the weather warms up a bit- something about watching movies that take place when it's warm when it's below zero with the windchill just doens't sit well. and vice versa, I don't care for winter movies in the summer!
