High Society (1956)You can see this film as one of the last of the nice silver screen musicals —and running out of originality and verve. Or you can play Cole Porter brought down to a middle class sensibility (never mind the wealth of the characters here). Or you can just marvel at some nice footage of Louis Armstrong, and at the inclusion a black jazz band as a centerpiece in a large budget movie.So there are reasons to give this film a try, even though it is fairly slow going, and a pale shadow of the original, the truly nice 1940 "Philadelphia Story." Grace Kelly plays the leading girl about to be married, and she lacks the cool stony quality that Hitchcock wisely taps and instead tries to be a lively, witty, physically lithe leading lady. Just like Katherine Hepburn? Yes, except she's no Katherine Hepburn, and it all feels a bit striving.Likewise for Bing Crosby, who plays a laid back guy who happens to have a jazz band (and who does a nice swinging song with Louis and team alongside). He isn't quite screen magic—that is, he's no Cary Grant. Frank Sinatra is fine, but he has a smaller role. Alas.And so it goes. Brightly lit, with large flashy Technicolor set design, the mood throughout is upbeat and fun and funny. And so it's not a terrible thing to view. But if you take at all seriously the contention of one boy interceding on the groom for his ex-bride, whatever the Hays Code strategy, it just lacks edge and conviction. Cole Porter doesn't allow us down, so there's everytime that!
MGM was cute lucky to safe the talents of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Celeste Holm, and Louis Armstrong to receive involved in this nice musical adaption of The Philadelphia Story.Cole Porter contributed a nice original score for this movie with songs very specifically written to suit the talents of High Society's players. I do want Celeste Holm had been given more to do than just the duet with Frank Sinatra, Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. On Broadway Celeste Holm was a musical star with Oklahoma and Bloomer Woman to her credit, but MGM didn't wish to recognize that.For this film, the storyline is restart from Philadelphia to Newport, Rhode Island to bring in the popular Jazz Festival. Philip Barry's social commentary is toned down and a very partisan Greek Chorus is added in the person of Mr. Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. Satchmo says you right up front who he's pulling for to victory Grace Kelly and he supports musically along the way.Satch and Bing have that classic Actually You Has Jazz duet, so successful was it that they did an album together a several years later. Bing Crosby during his life was crazy about jazz musicians and there was no one he liked better than Louis Armstrong. No one on the planet should resist that man's joy for living.Grace Kelly got a possibility to bat 1000 in the recording industry. She was no singer as she would have freely admitted, but Cole Porter wrote Real Love specifically to accommodate her limited range and when she does the last two bars of Real Love with Der Bingle she got a million selling record for her one and only platter. As for Bing he got his 20th Gold record and the only one not with Decca records. Real Love was nominated for Greatest Song at the Oscars but lost to Doris Day's Que Sera Sera which boomed all over the charts in 1956. It was sadly Cole Porter's last occasion to victory an Oscar for one of his film songs.Frank Sinatra got a couple of nice ballads in You're Sensational and Mind If I Create Love to You, but what he's greatest remembered for is that classic Well Did You Evah duet with Bing. Today's fanatics can't possibly appreciate the screen meeting of the two greatest and greatest known singers for the previous generations. A musical summit conference.High Society's tone is a lot lighter than the Philadelphia Story. The cast in terms of acting ability are not in the same league as Grant, Stewart, Hepburn, and Hussey. But people it is a musical. I doubt those stars should have carried off the Cole Porter score.You can't miss with a cast like this, in either movie for that matter.
This movie at first glance might seem to have all the makings of a nice film, with its main stars (Sinatra, Kelly, Crosby), as well as Louis Armstrong's singing, Cole Porter's songs, and Nelson Riddle's scoring. Which was why I wondered what in the globe made this film fail. It came nowhere near as close to the brilliance of "The Philadelphia Story," as well as failing to even be a nice musical.The script was not as tight as in the original. It came off as being far too contrived and an overall horrible redo of the original. They seemed to stretch the script a bit thin in an attempt to create the musical aspect of it seem logical, and fell flat on its face doing so.The songs were not really that nice in my opinion. I think a nice musical leaves you humming the song after you hear it, or maybe even singing along of you know the song. The songs had no such result on me this time, unlike a nice musical like "The Sound of Music" or "My Fair Lady."Perhaps the best disappointment was just how terrible everyone's acting was in this movie. For one, there was absolutely no chemistry whatsoever between Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra or between Kelly and Bing Crosby. To test my previous terminology, everyone's acting seemed far too contrived. The rest of the helping cast was also highly disappointing, especially when compared to the original "Philadelphia Storyline Cast"Grace Kelly's acting was outright horrible. She was perfect in "Rear Window" and in "High Noon," so I expected much out of her in this movie. Was I ever allow down. Sinatra was nice in "The Manchurian Candidate" and fairly nice in "From Here to Eternity," but gave a horrible acting performance in this movie (I also think his acting sucks in "Guys and Dolls"). I think the fault gotta be the director's fault, since I know all of the actors should have and have elsewhere done perfect jobs.I gave this film a 4 out of 10. I'd tell stick to the original "Philadelphia Story," and look for a nice musical elsewhere.
