"Well, Did You Evah!" is a song written by Cole Porter for his 1939 musical DuBarry Was a Lady, where it was introduced by Betty Grable and Charles Walters.[1]

It was later performed by Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra in the 1956 film High Society,[2] which today is probably the most famous version of the song.[3]

It appears in the film At Long Last Love (1975), where it was performed by Burt Reynolds, Cybill Shepherd, Madeline Kahn, and Duilio Del Prete, and is also in De-Lovely (2004), a musical biopic that features Kevin Kline as Cole Porter.
