Synopsis

Box set containing two classic musicals. 'High Society' (1956) is a remake of 'The Philadelphia Story' and stars Grace Kelly as socialite Tracy Lord who, even as she prepares for her second marriage, still has obvious feelings for her ex-husband (Bing Crosby). She also strikes up a friendship with a reporter (Frank Sinatra), who has been sent to cover her society wedding. The Cole Porter score includes 'Who Wants To Be a Millionaire' and the famous Crosby/Sinatra duet 'Well, Did You Evah'. In 'Calamity Jane' (1953), Doris Day plays a famous female sharpshooter, who would rather hit targets than chase men - until she falls for 'Wild Bill' Hickok (Howard Keel), who would rather shoot Indians than chase after a tomboy like Calamity Jane. Featuring the Oscar-winning song 'Secret Love'.
