The fictionalized biography of composer Cole Porter from his days at Yale in the 1910s through the height of his success to the 1940s. The film's attempted biography matches many public myths surrounding Cole at the time, despite its lack of relationship with truth. For instance, truth and movie are different in regards to: his sex life (he was a gay man in a marriage of convenience with a divorcee friend), his relationship with his wife, Monty Wooley was a contemporary (not Professor), and his French military experience was a hoax.

At Christmas when Cole went home, his mother presents him with the sheet music to "An Old Fashioned Garden" that was published in 1919. Before this, a group of carolers sing "In the Still of the Night" which wasn't published until 1937. See more
