Question for the masses.....Posted by pleasant_valley on 2009.08.27 at 01:59
Current Mood: curious
Current Music: Blow, Gabriel, Blow ~ De-Lovely soundtrack
Just a random question.....
I know most people have seen the likes of Grease or The Sound of Music at some point in their life.
I was just wondering if there was a lesser known movie musical that any of you have seen or have on dvd that you'd like to use this opportunity to spread the word about.
I think mine would be De-Lovely. I dont know if it that unknown as such but its just seems to be one of those films that people have heard of but haven't seen.
Its basically the story of Cole Porter, his career, his relationship with his wife, his sexuality and most importantly his music.
I was familiar with some of his work through High Society (one of my favourite musicals) but its not till i watched this movie that i realised just how many great songs he was responsible for....Let's Misbehave,...Anything Goes...Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye....to name to few.
The trailer :
Anyone got any hidden gems to share?
