Cole Porter (1891-1964), known for his bouncy, lively style and witty lyrics, was a successful Broadway composer by 1928. He composed music and lyrics for more than 20 musicals, including Anything Goes (1934), Kiss Me, Kate (1948), Silk Stockings (1955) and High Society (1956). His classic songs include "Night and Day," "Begin the Beguine" and "I've Got You Under My Skin". Porter injured his legs in a horseback riding accident in 1937, had his right leg amputated. He refused to use an artificial limb and became a recluse in his apartment at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. Richard Lewine (1920-2005) was the producer of the CBS-TV fantasy Aladdin (1958), the last musical score written by Cole Porter. PSA/DNA. Normal mailing folds. Lightly toned. Minor chips in gold paint at top left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
