This review is from: The Philadelphia Story (DVD)In the Philadelphia Story, Katherine Hepburn stars as Tracy Lord, one of Philadelphia's socialites. Tracy is about to marry a rich industrialist, George Kittredge (John Howard). Her ex-husband, C.K. Dexter Haven (Cary Grant), shows up on the day before her wedding with a newspaper reporter, Macaulay "Mike" Connor (James Stewart) and photographer, Liz Imbrie (Ruth Hussey) with a proposition for Tracy. Since she kicked him out of the house years earlier, C.K. blackmails her into having her wedding day covered by the two reporters for Spy, a gossip magazine. As the plots begin to twist and love's in the air, who will Tracy marry?
This is a funny, distinctive and romantic classic! You can't go wrong with Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart (who won an Oscar for his flawless performance) as the three lead characters. They're all ideal in their roles. The supporting cast is wonderful, too. Especially Virginia Weidler as Dinah Lord, Tracy's younger sister.
The Philadelphia Story is a must-see classic!
