Uncle Leo's bedtime story for you older tots! The things they do among the playful rich - Oh, boy!
With Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart heading the splendid cast, The Philadelphia Story remains one of the most hilarious and captivating romantic comedies ever to grace the screen.
The setting is a wealthy Philadelphia suburb, Hepburn, recreating the role she originated in Philip Barry's wickedly funny Broadway play, is the rich, spoiled socialite Tracy Lord. In a performance full of temperament and tenderness, she portrays a woman of high ideals and low tolerance for human frailties - particularly in a husband! Arrogantly, she has just divorced one, congenial C.K. Dexter Haven, and is about to wed another.
Hoping to prevent the new marriage, cast-off Haven returns for the wedding, bringing along magazine journalist Macaulay Connor, an ink-smeared man-of-the-people who falls for Tracy while matching her acid wit line for line.
