Synopsis An original, unconventional musical boasting some of MGM's finest talents of the time, LES GIRLS tells the tale of a performing troupe of three charming girls who discovered that their romantic adventures got in the way of their act. The dynamite combination of Barry (Gene Kelly), Angele (Taina Elg), Joy (Mitzi Gaynor), and Sybil (Kay Kendall) are the former members of Barry Nichols and Les Girls, a popular European cabaret act. Years after the group is dissolved, the now Lady Sybil Wren faces a libel suit after publishing a scandalous account of the group in her memoirs. All the former partners are called into court to give their own widely contradicting accounts of those long-ago events, whereupon the film becomes a sort of musical RASHOMON. LES GIRLS is a dazzling adaptation of Vera Caspary's novel, featuring Cole Porter's last score.The wife of an English nobleman writes a scandalous account of her days as a member of a famous song-and-dance team, Barry Nichols and Les Girls. When she is slapped with a law suit by an ex-member, everyone is summoned to court to give their version of the highly-charged story. This George Cukor comedy stars Gene Kelly, Mitzi Gaynor, Kay Kendall, and Taina Elg.The story for LES GIRLS was purchased by producer Sol Siegel for MGM in 1955. Saul Chaplin had to finish Cole Porter's score after he fell ill during production; the film features Porter's last score. Gene Kelly did not want to star in the film, which was his last musical with MGM.
