1001 Movies ... my own version (1950's) (99 movies items)

" Notes: I have to admit that I really enjoyed the opening scene with Louis Armstrong, actually, all his scenes were pretty neat but, as soon as the actual story started, I got bored pretty quickly. It is only when it was finished that I realized that it was another version of ‘The Philadelphia Story’, a better classic which still didn’t really blow me away. Still, the cast was pretty nice (Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong) and it was interesting to see Grace Kelly "
