Warner Brothers' 1946 biopic of Cole Porter is wonderfully packed with Porter gems performed by a parade of stars who have, in most cases, little to do with the story of Cole Porter (portrayed by an uncharacteristically stiff Cary Grant) and with wife of 35 years, Linda (Alexis Smith). Monty Woolley contributes a song ("Miss Otis Regrets") and plays himself, although as one of Porter's Yale professors, not as a lifelong friend. Mary Martin shows up too as herself, singing "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", and Roy Rogers appropriately covers "Don't Fence Me In". Look for choice moments by Jane Wyman ("I'm In Love Again", "Let's Do It", and "You Do Something To Me"), Eve Arden ("I'm Unlucky In Love"), Ginny Simms ("I Get A Kick Out Of You", "What Is This Thing Called Love?", "I've Got You Under My Skin", and "Just One Of Those Things"), and even Grant, who sings a couple of Yale days' Porter compositions and joins Simms on "You're The Top". By the time Night And Day was filmed, Porter's career was in decline, due in no small part to his serious riding accident in 1936 which left him permanently and painfully disabled.
