From a young age, Cole Porter was drawn to music and theater. Professor Monty Woolley , whose theater course he is attending, supports him in his decision to drop out of the law course he has started at Yale University . When Cole wrote his first musical , Monty gave him a chance to perform. But the piece fails at the premiere.
Disappointed by this failure attracts Cole in 1914 as a volunteer in the French army in the First World War and is injured. In a hospital he meets his girlfriend Linda Lee, who works as a nurse there. To get Cole back on his feet quickly, she gets a piano, on which Cole then writes one of his greatest hits: Night and Day . Linda finally suggests that he live with her in her villa on the Riviera . But even though Cole has fallen in love with Linda, he doesn't want her to endure him, but rather earn his own money in America.
In New York he first took a job as a piano player in a music store. Together with Monty, who is now working as an actor, he soon produces a new show called The New Yorkers . The musical will be a huge success, as will Cole's next project. He eventually receives an offer to write a musical in England , where he meets Linda, whom he still loves. After they get married, they immediately return to New York so that Cole can produce his next show. Cole promises Linda that he will make up for the honeymoon with her as soon as possible. But whenever he has finished working on a musical, he starts a new one. After all, Linda has had enough and is traveling to Europe alone .
When Cole learns that his grandfather Omar is dying, he immediately flies to his native Indiana . Cole stays in Indiana for a while, where he is seriously injured again in a storm when he is thrown from his horse. The injury irritates his old war wounds so much that he can no longer walk. Before undergoing a series of operations, he asks Monty not to tell Linda about his condition. One day, when Cole attends a tribute addressed to him at Yale University, Monty makes sure that Linda also shows up, whereupon the couple reconciles.
Cole Porter personally selected Cary Grant to star. However, the film must not be confused with an actual biography - Cole Porter on its authenticity: "It should be a good [film], which is why nothing is right about it."
The premiere took place on July 2, 1946 in New York . The reviews were bad, but the audience made me think of you one of Grant's greatest commercial successes day and night . The first performance in West Germany took place on December 13, 1949 with a version shortened by 21 minutes.
"Solidly staged and splendidly equipped, but sometimes quite lengthy entertainment that has little in common with Porter's actual biography."
"Only a real treat for the ears."
