Released in 1940 - Though I'm far from being a fan of "Screwball" comedy, I found that I actually enjoyed The Philadelphia Story (TPS) for the most part._____ Containing plenty of smart, rapid-fire dialogue, TPS was certainly a well-crafted, MGM showpiece, as well as being a pinnacle of 1940's style & glamor._____ Regardless of its obvious weaknesses, TPS was clearly something of a triumph in that it had the ability to entertain this jaded viewer without the use of crime & violence as its story's catalyst._____ With its distinctive flavor of "high-society" elegance, this film's story concerns the well-deserved comeuppance of the brash & snooty, Tracy Lord, a spoiled, rich, socialite (with plenty of airs) who's soon to become a blushing bride._____ Filmed in glossy b&w, TPS was directed by George Cukor. It starred Cary Grant, James Stewart and Katharine Hepburn.

Honestly, this movie enticed me enough to begin a whole new journey in a realm called "Old movies" ;) It was remarkably amusing and held my attention throughout. If you have time, WATCH IT. If you have more time, WATCH IT AGAIN!!! :D

My first viewing of this film, which obviously stood out from the mass of other films of the times. Good acting, great story.

Brilliantly funny classic, one of the best films ever made. Outstanding writing, sharp banter, and one of the best casts ever assembled for one film.

This is one of my favourite oldies. I usually don't much enjoy romantic comedies, but this one is smart and entertaining. Equally good is its later catchy-musical remake 'High Society' with Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and grace Kelly :)

Grant, Hepburn and Stewart in their prime. Whimsical, emotional and surprisingly realistic, Philadelphia Story has aged well. No wrinkles here! Highly recommended.

One of my favourite movies. Sparkly, witty dialogue, a debonaire hero, acidic heroine, and some great character actors.

"You'd have to be as rich as the Lord's to live in a dump like this."
