High Society Reviews

Charming, boozy musical remake has less screwball humor.

Scored by Cole Porter, this musical version of the famous play is an all-star, mildly entertaining film, featuring the iconic song True Love and Grace Kelly in her last role.

The original story is bumbled but Cole Porter's original score is a welcome addition.

High Society...is as flimsy as a gossip-columnist's word, especially when it is documenting the weird behavior of the socially elite.

A musical remake of The Philadelphia Story, High Society features Cole Porter tunes, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby, and Grace Kelly in her final acting role.

How can you not get a kick out of a movie featuring the always enthusiastic Louis Armstrong and his band jazzing things up?

Not up to the original, but some nice moments and some great songs, especially Louis Armstrong.

Overlit, staged like a high school play, but saved by the cast and Cole Porter songs

"often hailed as a classic -- but it's really not"

After opening with a calypso tune from the inimitable Louis Armstrong, High Society really has nowhere to go but down, yet somehow director Charles Walters manages to keep this Technicolor musical sparkling through the next 100 minutes.

The two chief pleasures of High Society are the performances, which bring life and vitality to the characters, and the music, which makes this the kind of movie that never loses its appeal.
