Tracy Lord, a Rhode Island heiress, is on the eve of her second marriage when her ex-husband, an unemployed millionaire named C K Dexter-Haven, returns to his house in Newport. His purpose is to win Tracy back, and he has several allies in the Lord family. At the same time, Tracy is blackmailed into allowing two magazine reporters, Mike Connor and Liz Imbrie, to cover her wedding to George Kittredge, a staid and ambitious businessman. During the day or two before the wedding, Tracy is forced into making some discoveries about her own character when both Dexter and her father accuse her of being harsh, arrogant and unforgiving. Overcoming his prejudices against the idle rich, Mike finds himself increasingly attracted to Tracy. On the night before the wedding, they are involved together in a drunken escapade. Shocked by his fiancee's behaviour, Kittredge breaks off the engagement. But Tracy now realizes that it is Dexter whom she really loves, and Mike returns to the faithful Liz Imbrie.
The musical remake of THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, with songs by Cole Porter, HIGH SOCIETY has an outstanding cast including Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Celeste Holm.
