Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Hosted and narrated by renowned entertainer and Cole Porter devotee Bobby Short, You're the Top: The Cole Porter Story probes the many facets of Porter's persona. One of the most skillful composers ever, Porter created such Broadway and Hollywood hits as Kiss Me Kate, Anything Goes, Silk Stockings and Can Can. His wit and sophisticated style are still the standards to which today's composers and lyricists aspire. The documentary is an informative and lively celebration of the man who embraced an elite lifestyle and chronicled the world of high society with his music. Highlights include performances of Porter's songs by Fred Astaire, Ethel Merman, Frank Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine, Maurice Chevalier, Gertrude Lawrence, Judy Garland and Bing Crosby, as well as rare photographs and archival footage.
