Product Description

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'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever 23 Dec 2009
These two DVDs arrived within two days of my ordering them. We already have both of these videos on VHS tape but we are trying to save space so are progressively dumping our VHS tapes in favour of DVDs. I tried the 'High Society' DVD just to make sure it would play properly and I was totally astounded at the superb quality of both the picture and the sound. We do have a new 40" LCD TV but the TV was not in HD mode and in any case even if it had been the picture could not have been any better. I then switched to the VHS tape but this was decidedly fuzzy by comparison. Thank you so much for these DVDs. Is there anything special about them? and if so can you let me know of any others that have been produced to this standard.

Just what I expected - both DVDs were excellent quality in sound and vision and took me back to the fifties, when I first saw them in the cinema. Really good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase
These are both such fantastic films. Amazing songs. I sound about 150, but they don't make them like that any more. My children also adored them both and are now massive Doris Day fans. They loved High Society too and can be heard calling "Papa! Papa! Oh look, it's Papa..." in the style of Grace Kelly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful memories! 31 Dec 2012
By fred
Verified Purchase
This set brought back happy memories of when I first saw these two films. I rated the set 4 stars instead of five stars simply because of the age of the films and not for any other reason.
I would happily recommend this set to anyone who enjoys musicals and a nostalgic look back in film time.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGH SOCIETY /CALAMITY JANE 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase
HIGH SOCIETY HAD LOVELY SONGS BEING SUNG THROUGHOUT THE FILM, AND OTHER THAN THAT, I WOULD HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP WITH BOREDOM REGARDING THE SPOILT RICH WOMAN WHO WAS MARRYING THIS BLOKE SHE WAS ENGAGED TO, OR WAS SHE? BING CROSBY AND FRANK SINATRA WERE GOOD AND WORTH WATCHING AND LISTENING TO THOUGH.

CALAMITY JANE WAS A BRILLIANT WESTERN MUSICAL AND DORIS DAY WAS EXCELLENT IN SINGING AND ACTING. SHE ACTED LIKE A MAN AT FIRST UNTIL SHE MET A 'REAL' WOMAN. HOWARD KEEL, ANOTHER GOOD ACTOR AND SINGER WAS REALLY WORTH WATCHING AND LISTENING TO. A GREAT FILM.

I wasn't that excited about the story, I have seen better musicals. The seller was great and received the product promptly. The price was very reasonable for a double dvd.
