Cole Porter Collection
Broadway Musicals DVD
BM01 Broadway Musicals DVD - MGM Musicals - Cole Porter Collection - Broadway Musicals DVD - 5 disc set. Includes: High Society, Kiss Me Kate, Les Girls, Broadway Melody of 1940, and Silk Stockings. All-new digital transfers. Cole Porter in Hollywood segments. Bonus shorts and vintage cartoons. Behind-the-scenes notes. The Cole Porter Collection provides an overview of the swellegant songwriter's witty lyrics and well-known melodies through five MGM musicals. 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). By the 1950s, we recognize the splashy colors that would become MGM's distinctive style in four pictures inspired by familiar sources. Kiss Me Kate (1953) is the adaptation of the Broadway musical, starring Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson as the couple whose offstage feud mirrors their roles in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. The best of the batch, High Society (1956), stars Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, and Frank Sinatra in a musical update of The Philadelphia Story, while the 1957 films Les Girls (with Gene Kelly, Kay Kendall, Tania Elg, and Mitzi Gaynor) and Silk Stockings (with Astaire and Cyd Charisse) retell Rashomon and Ninotchka, respectively. Favorite songs in the set include Begin the Beguine, I Concentrate on You, Wunderbar, So in Love, Brush Up Your Shakespeare, Well, Did You Evah?, You're Sensational, and All of You. The films boast sharp transfers, making-of segments hosted by legends such as Cyd Charisse and Ann Miller, vintage shorts and cartoons, and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound (except Broadway Melody, which is in satisfactory mono). A compendium of Cole Porter classics.Broadway Melody of 1940; High Society; Kiss Me Kate; Les Girls; Silk Stockings
