Whenever I think of the Fabulous Cole Porter, I can’t help but think of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing to “Night and Day” in The Gay Divorcee!

Bing Crosby and Ethel Merman singing You're The Top in Anything Goes, Cole Porter, Lewis Milestone

And, yes, Mr. Porter — “You’re the Top” (couldn’t resist that!).  Bing Crosby and Ethel Merman singing Cole Porter’s “You’re the Top” from Anything Goes.  This one always puts me in a GOOD mood!

And, last but not least, Judy Garland and Gene Kelly performing Cole Porter’s “Be a Clown” from The Pirate.  Fun Choreography too!
