COLE PORTER’S “SILK STOCKINGS” (G)
FRED ASTAIRE and CYD CHARISSE reteam for this wonderful 1957 musical remake of the Garbo classic NINOTCHKA. Presented in Stereo this was meant to be Fred’s retirement film and he’s a sublime as ever. But he did return 11 years later for FINIAN’S RAINBOW. Another beautiful musical score from Cole Porter.
