Les Girls

Original Theatrical Date: October 3, 1957

“BRAVO” say critics about an entertainer’s tell-all memoir chronicling her days in the cabaret act Barry Nichols and Les Girls. “Libel!” cries another of Les Girls, setting in motion a talons-and fact-baring litigation that proves Les Girls will be girls and that Cole Porter movie musicals will always sparkle.

Gene Kelly plays Nichols, and Mitzi Gaynor, Golden Globe® Best Actress winner Kay Kendall and Taina Elg are the femmes in this George Cukor-directed romp that won a Best Costume Design Oscar® and another Golden Globe® for Best Comedy/Musical. Among the highlights: a ribald “Ladies in Waiting” and a hepcat parody of The Wild One called “Why Am I So Gone About That Gal?” You’ll be so gone about Les Girls.

Genre: Music/Musicals
