Rent Can-Can on DVD


1960 Rated NR 2hr 21m

Paris in the 1890s comes to life in this adaptation of Cole Porter's rollicking musical about changing tastes. Simone (Shirley MacLaine) is a cabaret dancer who performs the forbidden can-can nightly. When she's targeted by a prudish judge (Louis Jourdan), it's up to her charming boyfriend, lawyer François (Frank Sinatra), to defend her. The film features Porter classics "Let's Do It," "Just One of Those Things" and more.
