By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 14 May 2011
Format: DVD
1957's Les Girls is a pretty mediocre movie musical send-off for Cole Porter, and for Gene Kelly too for that matter, here taking his last lead in an MGM musical. It's never outright bad, just never really good enough, with most of the musical numbers limited to the stage routines performed by Kelly, Kay Kendall, Mitzi Gaynor and Taina Elg rather than bursting out into the `real' world - which is a little bit ironic since it's a film about truth and reality, with Elg suing Kendall over her memoirs leading to three different versions of the romantic complications that lead to the act's demise. Yes, it's Rashomon, the Musical, but with even more plotholes - the whole thing depends on the characters not talking to each other for years after one dramatic event, leading to misunderstandings and misinterpretations that end up in the Old Bailey. Unfortunately the script is never sharp enough, George Cukor's direction never able to compensate quite enough and most of the songs not that memorable - only the comic Ladies in Waiting and Gene Kelly's uncredited choreography in Why Am I So Gone About That Gal? have much life to them: elsewhere it's more a comedy with the odd song thrown in rather than an all-out musical. While Taina Elg is the film's weakest link (though an inspid Jacques Bergerac runs her close as her bland romantic interest), Kay Kendall steals the acting honors, though in retrospect there's something rather uncomfortable about her starring in a film where one character lies about a fake illness while her lover and doctor in real life were lying to her about her very real terminal one.Read more ›

this is fun.Les Girls is a dance troupe run by gene kelly and then things start to fall apart.one of the troup decides to do a "kiss and tell" and is taken to court to be sued for libel.the story is told basically in flash backs from different perspectives.kay kendall does a couple of hilarious drunken scenes,mitzi gaynor plays basically mitzi gaynor and taina elg (who she?) plays a stereotyped french girl..every time the film cuts to the court a man carries a bill board,outside asking "what is truth?"some fair dance numbers with gene.not what you'd call a "big production "movie but still fun. however i really wouldnt spend over the odds getting it

Excellent copy of what is now quite a rare film. It is very much but still very entertaining as well as being memorable as the last film to be scored by Cole Porter.

I'm so glad to finally have this film. Saw it ages ago and have found it hard to get. It's entertaining and funny and I love it.
