Night and Day

Weak biopic of Cole Porter in which Curtiz fights a losing battle with a conventional, highly sanitised, thoroughly sentimental script. Though unadventurously chosen, the songs (staged lushly if none too imaginatively by LeRoy Prinz) are at least worth listening to, especially when sung by Ginny Simms (though some swear by Mary Martin's rendition of My Heart Belongs to Daddy as the highlight of the film).
