Three of the greatest stars of all time shared the screen in The Philadelphia Story (1940): Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and James Stewart.
Beautiful Katharine Hepburn (in one of my favorite roles she ever played) stars as the spoiled and snobby socialite Tracy Lord in this fun screen adaptation of The Philadelphia Story. Grant, Hepburn, and Stewart team up for one of cinema’s first ever rom coms… before they even knew what rom coms were!
Movie Synopsis from Amazon: Applying her impossibly high ideals to everyone but herself, Tracy(Katharine Hepburn) is about to marry a stuffy executive when her congenial ex-husband (Cary Grant), arrives to protect his former father-in-law from a potentially scandalous tabloid exposé. In an Oscar-winning role, James Stewart is the scandal reporter who falls for Tracy as her wedding day arrives, throwing her into a dizzying state of premarital jitters. Who will join Tracy at the altar? Snappy dialogue flows like sparkling wine under the sophisticated direction of George Cukor in this film that turned the tide of Hepburn’s career from “box-office poison” to glamorous Hollywood star. -Jeff Shannon
