Film Night : High Society
Film Night: High Society
Fundraising evening for the village hall.
6.45pm Door and bar open.
Dir. Charles Walters,
Set to the glorious music of Cole Porter, High Society is a blissfully elegant musical remake of The Philadelphia Story, with an all star cast.
Bing Crosby is C.K. Dexter-Haven, a successful jazz musician who is trying to re-win the heart of his ex-wife (Grace Kelly) on the eve of her marriage. Reporter Mike Connor (Frank Sinatra) arrives to cover the nuptials and a complicated love triangle
(or should that be rectangle?) ensues when he also falls for Tracy’s icy charms.
One of two films (along with Written on the Wind) from 1956 about troubled marriages, accompanying Opera North’s production of Carousel.
