Ethel Merman,Frank Sinatra
Frank Sinatra and Ethel Merman star in Cole Porter's classic musical comedy ANYTHING GOES. On a luxurious ocean liner, a nightclub singer helps a fellow American woo an heiress who is returning home to marry a man she doesn't love. Looking to elude his boss, the American disguises himself as a gangster traveling with a minister, who is actually a gangster. Adapted for television by Herb Baker, this spectacular tale of Jazz Age madness originally aired on NBC's Colgate Comedy Hour February 28, 1954. Newly transferred from Ethel Merman's personal kinescope copy, this long-lost treasure is highlighted by rousing performances of the Cole Porter standards Anything Goes, You're the Top, and I Get a Kick Out of You. Exclusive bonus features include: Newly recorded interview with musical director, Buddy Bregman, 20-page booklet with written contributions from musical theatre writer Stephen Cole and the Archive of American Television.
