Turner Classic Movies' Greatest Classic Films Collection: Romantic Comedies collects four movies on two double-sided discs, with top picture quality and the bonus features that appeared on disc 1 when two of those films were released on two-disc sets, or the features that appeared on the single discs of the other two. Here the spotlight is on Katharine Hepburn and her unmatched flair for screwball comedy. The Philadelphia Story (1940) costars Cary Grant and James Stewart, and Bringing Up Baby (1938) costars Grant. Each film has a commentary track, by film historian Jeanine Basinger and Peter Bogdanovich, respectively, and a trailer gallery of other movies by the respective directors (George Cukor and Howard Hawks). Adam's Rib (1949) and Woman of the Year (1942) pair Hepburn with her longtime partner Spencer Tracy, and each film is accompanied by its own trailer. --David Horiuchi

This is one of 27 sets of four movie packs that Warner Home Video plans to release in the next few years. Their purpose is to introduce classic film to people previously unaware of these films via very affordable bare bones versions of these movies. This set has four very good films, all featuring Katharine Hepburn.
Woman of the Year (1941) - The film that introduced Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy and sparked a long relationship both on and offscreen. Here Hepburn plays an early feminist who goes around collecting causes. Spencer Tracy is the sportswriter that loves her. They marry, but things go downhill quickly since Kate is really already married to her causes.

Adam's Rib (1951) - Ten years have passed and Hepburn and Tracy have aged a bit, but the spark and the chemistry is still there. This time the pair are married lawyers. He is a prosecutor and she a defense attorney. Problems arise when Hepburn defends a woman who shot her husband when she caught him cheating on her and Tracy is the prosecuting attorney in the same case.

Bringing Up Baby (1938) - One of the original screwball comedies. Stars Cary Grant as an anthropologist who gets mixed up with a very dizzy young woman played by Hepburn. The plot involves a tame leopard - Baby - and a dinosaur bone buried by a dog - the exact whereabouts are unknown.

The Philadelphia Story (1940) - Reteams Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant as a divorced pair of socialites. Hepburn's character is about to marry a man of the people who pulled himself up by his bootstraps, and also happens to be one of the most annoying people who has ever lived. James Stewart oddly won a Best Actor award for what is essentially a supporting role.

Okay, these delightful romantic comedies from yesteryear are a bargain. That said, I've got to be one of those jerks that nitpick, because there is a real problem.

The only labels on these two two-sided DVDs are the microscopic writing around the spindle holes. I've got to use a powerful light and a magnifier to see which movie is which.

I purchased this set of movies at wal-mart. (Sorry Amazon!!)This is a WONDERFUL set of classic romantic comedies at a GREAT price! I have always wanted BRINGING UP BABY but have found that it is rather expensive by itself. It's a hilarious comedy with Katherine Hepburn & Cary Grant. Grant is a palentologist waiting on the last bone to complete a dinosaur exhibit. Hepburn is a socialite who "runs into" Grant on the golf course, who just happens to have a leopard named "Baby". Needless to say, Grant & Hepburn stumble through crazy shenanigans to fall hopelessly in love. The other movies are just as good or better. Jimmy Stewart & once again, Cary Grant come to review the social highlight of the year. The marriage of Hepburn to one of society's finest, most eligible bachelors. Grant, happened to be Hepburn's first husband, reviewing the marriage in the society pages, along with Stewart. Well the reviews lead to a rekindling of an old flame. Needless to say, Grant has to write his "own" review. Loaded with LOTS of laughs!!ADAM'S RIB is Hepburn & Tracy at their finest as huband & wife lawyers. Hepburn comes to represent a woman who shot her philandering husband caught in the act. Tracy is the District Attorney who she has to defend her client against. Tracy & Hepburn's "magic" is evident in this funny, romantic comedy.WOMAN OF THE YEAR is Hepburn & Tracy's first movie together. The screen sizzles as Hepburn a political pundit, battles Tracy a sports writer. Fortunately, all the sparks that fly kindle a romance. This is a great way to introduce yourself or your teenagers to "classic movies"!!! I love this set at such a wonderful price! You can't go wrong with this set.

I've heard a lot of reviewers dump on the TCM sets for not giving each film a "proper" release in it's own case, but I thought that this set (my second) was one heck of a deal. Not being a huge Hepburn fan, I bought it for the two Cary Grant films, of which "Bringing up Baby" is difficult to get elsewhere.

The films are beautiful and the sound excellent. Aspect ratios were in the original specks, which I demand in films that I purchase. Great set, great price. Unless you obsess about the case art work you won't be sorry.

Amazon's prices for these classic collections is very reasonable, and the product delivers what it claims. Good quality classic film collections. The four movies in the collection we purchased were contained on 2 double-sided DVDs. My only compliant is that the DVDs are not well labeled, although as the DVDs are double-sided, there's really no way to put a 'stick-on' label on them. The titles of the movies on each side are noted in VERY small letters close to the spindle hole of the DVD.

Loved watching these old movies especially Adam's Rib. Considered their finest pairing, Adam's Rib stars Hepburn and Tracy as the married prosecutor and defense lawyer in a sensational murder trial, with Hepburn defending a woman (Judy Holliday's first role) who shoots her unfaithful husband. Based on a a true story, the couple battles in the courtroom and at home, over equality, women’s rights and the law - and the resulting tension leads each to consider the attractions of someone new. Intelligent, funny and beautifully written by another husband-wife team, Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin.
