High Society (1956) – IMDb



C.K. Dexter-Haven, a successful popular jazz musician, lives in a mansion near his ex-wife’s Tracy Lord’s family estate. She is on the verge of marrying a man blander and safer than Dex, who tries to win Tracy’s heart again. Mike Connor, an undercover tabloid reporter, also falls for Tracy while covering the nuptials for Spy magazine. Tracy must choose between the three men as she discovers that “safe” can mean “deadly dull” when it comes to husbands and life.

In the confrontation between Tracy Lord, George Kittridge, and Mike Connor, Tracy is in the center with George stage left and Mike stage right. She turns to face George, which puts Mike behind her. But when she speaks to Mike, she glances left, not behind her. When the camera angle changes a second later, Mike has not moved, but Tracy is now facing him, with George now behind her. See more »
