Cole Porter facts

  • Born to a wealthy family in Indiana, he defied the wishes of his domineering grandfather and took up music as a profession
  • Classically trained, he was drawn towards musical theatre
  • After a slow start, he began to achieve success in the 1920s, and by the 1930s he was one of the major songwriters for the Broadway musical stage
  • Unlike many successful Broadway composers, Porter wrote the lyrics, as well as the music, for his songs
  • After a serious horseback riding accident in 1937, Porter was left disabled and in constant pain, but he continued to work
  • His shows of the early 1940s did not contain the lasting hits of his best work of the 1920s and '30s, but in 1948 he made a triumphant comeback with his most successful musical, Kiss Me, Kate
  • It won the first Tony Award for Best Musical
  • Porter's other musicals include Fifty Million Frenchmen, DuBarry Was a Lady, Anything Goes, Can-Can and Silk Stockings
  • His numerous hit songs include "Night and Day", "Begin the Beguine", "I Get a Kick Out of You", "Well, Did You Evah!", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" and "You're the Top"
  • He also composed scores for films from the 1930s to the 1950s, including Born to Dance (1936), which featured the song "You'd Be So Easy to Love"; Rosalie (1937), which featured "In the Still of the Night"; High Society (1956), which included "True Love"; and Les Girls (1957)
