The Philadelphia Story
George Cukor’s evergreen comedy set at a society wedding has Hepburn, Grant and Stewart all on top form.
Dir George Cukor
With Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, James Stewart, Ruth Hussey
When a wealthy divorcee (Hepburn) decides to marry again, she’s unprepared for the arrival at her society wedding not only of her millionaire ex (Grant) but of a pair of scandal-seeking journalists (Stewart, Hussey)... Cukor’s evergreen version of Philip Barry’s play boasts sparkling performances from a magnificent cast and characteristically understated direction which seamlessly interweaves wit, romance and subtle eroticism.
