High Society

Monday, August 7th at 7pm (hosted) & Tuesday August 8th at 1pm

Jazz artist C.K. Dexter Haven (Bing Crosby) is still hung up on his ex-wife and neighbor, socialite Tracy Samantha Lord (Grace Kelly); however, Tracy is engaged to another man (John Lund). Matters are complicated even further when a magazine reporter (Frank Sinatra), in town to cover Tracy’s wedding, also winds up falling for the beautiful bride-to-be. As Tracy tries to decide on the ideal husband, each suitor works hard to convince her he is the best choice. Scored by Cole Porter, this musical version of the famous play is an all-star classic featuring the iconic song True Love and Grace Kelly in her last role, as well as the lovely Celeste Holm. You also don’t want to miss the on-screen performances by Louis Armstrong! (1956, 1h 47m)
