Celebrate High Society's 65th Anniversary in November
Fathom Events recently announced that High Society, the 1956 musical remake of 1940's The Philadelphia Story, will enjoy a 65th-anniversary screening at theaters throughout the U.S. in November.
Directed by Charles Walters and starring Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, High Society is also notable for being Kelly's final feature film: MGM released the musical in the U.S. on July 17, 1956, while Kelly had married Prince Rainier of Monaco almost exactly three months before. Helen Rose, costume designer on High Society, also famously designed Kelly's wedding gown. MGM capitalized on the wedding by releasing a documentary film the same year, The Wedding in Monaco, narrated by José Ferrer; it can be found in two parts on YouTube.
As Tracy Lord, Kelly wears a variety of costumes roundly agreed to be among the most glamorous ever created for a film by Rose, who headed up MGM's costume department. She also wears the 10.48-carat Cartier diamond engagement ring given to her by Rainier, prominently seen in one scene.
