Les Girls Reviews:

LES GIRLS is the forgotten musical gem of the last nice splurge of MGM musicals in the 1950s. It's reception (judging from the another comments here) is less than overly enthusiastic, due to the script. LES GIRLS is possibly the most philosophical of the MGM musicals, because it tackles an immortal trouble of mankind: "What is truth?"Gene Kelly had been leading a highly successful nightclub group around Europe for many years named LES GIRLS. But he has ceased doing so, and disbanded the group. We learn that Kay Kendall has published her memoirs. She has married Leslie Phillips, a wealthy British aristocrat. In her memoirs she describes what life on the street with the act was like, and how she saved the life of fellow dancer/singer Taina Eig when the latter tried to commit suicide with gas. Taina has married wealthy Frenchmen Jacques Bergerac, and she is furious at this libel suggesting that she was mentally ill enough to test to slay herself. She brings an action in London vs Kendall.This being a George Cukor film, he will have many touches in it that are normal. One, that I note, is the justice in this trial is none another than the old Cukor favourite Henry Daniell. Daniell appeared in Cukor's movies from CAMILLE (as Baron De Warvell), through THE PHILADELPHIA STORY (as Sidney Kidd), up to MY FAIR LADY (as the Prince of Transylvania at the embassy ball - he only appears in one sequence as he died on the set). Here he is just determined to have an orderly libel trial in his court. In the end, he is just as amazed and perplexed by what he hears as everyone else. Also to be noted is Patrick Macnee, testing a titled barrister.The act being a song and dance one (with Kelly, leading the two ladies and Mitzi Gaynor) the melody is from none another than Cole Porter. It was the last finished melody score that Porter made for a film. It is not a terrible score, but not up to the par of tell SILK STOCKINGS or CAN-CAN (both composed in the early to mid-1950s). My favourite song is "We're Ladies in Waiting" sung by the three ladies in 18th Century costumes. The lyrics recommend Lord Louis has plans for them outside their normal duties.As the movie continues, Eig produces as her defense that she was not the girl who tried to slay herself. It was Kendall, and she (Eig) rescued her. So actually the court and the public have two versions of the storyline of the "suicide attempt". The final witness is Kelly, who gives his acc of what really happened. I won't explain it (see the film) but in revealing what he claims happened he also reveals something of the lies said by him to the two girl and Mitzi Gaynor, as well as some subterfuges he is working out with both Bergerac and Phillips regarding their private interests in the matter. The effects of his testimony settle the trial, and all parties return to their lives. We even see Kelly going home with his wife (Gaynor), who was in the court but never questioned. But actually she has questions about the validity of Kelly's testimony! As they yell at every another in the back of their car, we see a boy wearing a sandwich board with the eternal question: "What is truth?" on it. And the movie ends.It was only a handful of years before that Akiro Kurasowa's brilliant RASHOMON tackled the same problem, again in relating a legal trouble (who was responsible for the death of an nobleman, and how did the nobleman die). The screenwriters certainly picked up on this perennial trouble of truth and it's limits, and a courtroom happens to be the greatest zone to present it. Who can say if somebody has said the truth fully or partially, and if partially why partially? In looking over the trouble of saying the truth, note that besides Kendall, Eig, and Kelly, the behavior of Phillips and Bergerac receive scrutinized. Gaynor is also pulled in (we have Kelly's ver of how and why she behaved - but we never even hear her explanations). The strategies of Macnee and his opposing counsel (and all lawyers, including his Lordship Daniell) are based on testing out certain tell-tale facts that may hide another tell-tale facts. Who, in the end can judge the truth?It is one of Kay Kendall's greatest performances, with GENEVIEVE and THE RELUCTANT DEBUTANTE. She was aware, in 1957, of physical issues that she revealed to her husband Rex Harrison. Before the end of the year he knew it was leukemia, and that she was doomed. In his autobiography REX he says how he made her last two years the happiest in her life. One would never think of the sudden end of such a funny, vibrant actress being so close seeing her with Kelly doing a song and dance duet (and a saucy one at that). For that alone, I would suggest seeing the movie to think of such a promising talent that was slash so tragically short.


There is a special type of elegance in Cukor's method to see the world. An elegance that is utterly personal. Witty, warm, enchanting. It should disguise, transform and magnify the smallest, thinnest trifle. I remember feeling my cheeks type of numb after the movie was over, not from laughing but from smiling all the method through. Cukor's reputation as a women's director was no myth. Here, the glorious Kay Kendall, in a hero written with a tired left hand, shines all the same because Cukor knew and understood what made her so irresistible. She was, in the history of the movies, like a comet that flashed before us dazzling us and disappearing very quick but leaving behind a special brand of magic. In "Les Girls" she even dances with Gene Kelly, wears hats and sun glasses like no one ever had before or since. She's an impossibly excellent combination of Allison Janney and Greta Garbo. This is a movie that more often than not, folks forget to remember. I think it's time to correct that. Rent it or purchase it, switch on the weather channel, choose a rainy winter Sunday, invite a bunch of mates and have a ball.


This would have been an enjoyable movie without the enchanting comic actress Kay Kendall, but with her it's hilarious. It's a musical comedy ver of "Rashomon"; a trial for libel where all the principals give wildly various versions of the same events. Gene Kelly, Taina Elg, and even Mitzi Gaynor are all fun, but it's Kendall who carries the show. She is one of those rare performers who can create you laugh with just a look on her face, but when given something like a drunk stage she can create you weep with laughter. Who cares if she should neither sing nor dance. Nice score, too.Sadly, Kendall made only two more movies before her untimely death, what a loss to the world.
