The rich are generally different. But in matters of the heart, they're just as scatterbrained as the rest of us. 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. Among 'High Society's' high points: Sinatra and Celeste Holm ask 'Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?', Crosby and Kelly share 'True Love', Der Bingle and Ol' Blue Eyes swing-swing-swingle 'Well, Did You Evah?' and Crosby and Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong jive with 'Now You Has Jazz'. Yes, indeedy, we has!
