A spoiled heiress must choose among three suitors: her jazz musician ex-husband, a stuffy businessman, and an undercover tabloid reporter.

The film is a musical remake of the 1940 film The Philadelphia Story starring Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and James Stewart, which was based on the 1939 play The Philadelphia Story by Philip Barry (which had starred Hepburn on Broadway). High Society's screenplay was written by John Patrick and involves a successful popular jazz musician (Crosby) who tries to win back the affections of his ex-wife (Kelly), who is preparing to marry another man. The cast also features Celeste Holm, John Lund and Louis Calhern, in his final film, with a musical contribution by Louis Armstrong.
