Product Overview

The Cole Porter Collection provides an overview of the swellegant songwriter's witty lyrics and well-known melodies through five MGM musicals: "High Society," "Kiss Me Kate," "Les Girls," "Broadway Melody Of 1940" and "Silk Stockings."

High Society
Heiress Tracy Lord (Grace Kelly) is engaged to one man (John Lund), attracted to another (Frank Sinatra), and just maybe in love again with her ex-husband (Bing Crosby) in this effervescent musical reinvention of Philip Barry's play The Philadelphia Story featuring an endlessly delightful Cole Porter score.

Kiss Me Kate
Revived as a Broadway musical in 2000, this production of the classic Cole Porter musical was a huge hit with audiences. Two sets of lovers, Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson, continue their feuds offstage as well as on, in a production of Shakespear's "Taming of the Shrew." Including a plethora of Cole Proter's original songs, this Broadway comedy has something for every fan of musicals!

Les Girls
The magic of Gene Kelly and the sparkle of Cole Porter's music mark this not-to-be-missed classic. In a series of flashbacks, three lovely ladies recall three delicious (and conflicting) versions of their past romances with Kelly.

Broadway Melody Of 1940
The black-and-white Broadway Melody of 1940 features the brilliant dancing of Fred Astaire (in his MGM debut) and Eleanor Powell (in her fourth Broadway Melody picture). The plot, never the point of these exercises, pits two dancers in a friendly rivalry for the attentions of Powell. This was the only screen appearance together of Astaire and Powell and it makes you wish for more.

Silk Stockings
Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse recapture the magic of their The Band Wagon pairing in this musical based on the same-titled 1955 Broadway hit and on the famed 1939 Greta Garbo comedy Ninotchka. Set to witty Cole Porter tunes, spiked with laughs and featuring the two leads dancing the Eugene Loring-Hermes Pan choreography into timeless emotion, Silk Stockings shows why elegance and fun never go out of style.
