The Philadelphia Story
Continuing in the vintage vein from yesterday’s post, today’s film is an old classic, George Cukor’s The Philadelphia Story (1940), starring Cary Grant, James Stewart and the amazing Katharine Hepburn.
The story revolves around rich girl Tracy Lord (Hepburn), who is about to get married. In the days leading up to the wedding, her ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven (Grant) returns to complicate things, and with him are two reporters trying to get the scoop of the year: the inside story on the wedding.
Clever quips are wittily exchanged, and the self-assured heiress learns some important things about herself and her soon-to-be husband (not to mention her ex). In the mix is also Tracy’s amazingly cool little sister, Dinah.
I thouroughly recommend this film this weekend!
