Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine light up the screen in the high-kicking, two-time OscarÂ® nominated screen adaptation of Cole Porter's smash Broadway musical, Can-Can, costarring Maurice Chevalier, Louis Jordan and Juliet Prowse.
The owner of Montmart's most notorious nightspot, the Cafe Le Bal Du Paradis, Simone Pistache (MacLaine) spends a great deal of her time in court, thanks to the banning of that "lewd and lascivious" dance, the can-can! So when her nightlife-loving lawyer and boyfriend, Francois Durnais (Sinatra), refuses to settle down and marry her, Simone decides to play up to his rival in romance, Parisian judge Philipe Forrestier (Jourdan), a lovestruck young jurist who's determined to make an honest woman out of her... one way or the other. Jam-packed with spectacular production numbers and the scintillating show tunes of the incomparable Cole Porter, Can-Can is "big, brassy, colorful entertainment" (Los Angeles Times). C'est magnifique!!!
