Soon enough he starts to fall in love with Tracy. She now has to decide what she wants in life.
Director: Charles Walters
Actors: Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, John Lund, Louis Armstrong and Celeste Holm
Year: 1956
Genre: Classics, Comedy, Musical and Romance
Conclusion: 5/5
Just like so many classic films this was up for Oscar Awards but never actually won any. I love the soundtrack to this especially the song that was sung by Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra called Well, Did You Evah?. I don’t know of an actress who could have acted this role as wonderfully as Grace Kelly. This was Grace Kelly’s last feature film before retiring from acting. This was a very entertaining film from start to finish. Film critic Barry Norman produced a list at the start of 2012 of his 100 Greatest Films of all time and this was one of them.
