This romantic comedy is so much more than that. It was written for Katherine Hepburn and after playing it on stage she asked Cary Grant (who had starred with her in Bringing Up Baby, Hepburn's last movie that made her box office poison years before) to star with her.

Katherine Hepburn is great in this. She has the character down pat. She's cold and distant even while being hurt and ... read more

"I'm going crazy. I'm standing here solidly on my own two hands and going crazy."

The Philadelphia Story is a classic, enchanting romantic comedy that has gone down in history as one of the much-loved romantic comedies of all time.

I will admit that because the film is decades old it has lost some of its charm and appeal, but the abilities of the actors is what truly... read more

A classic

“Since I’m a huge movie buff, I watch all kinds of movies and I’m particularly interested in Classics. However, to be honest, in my opinion, there are two kinds of classics, some of them which remain untouched by time , and which will always be great and amazing like ‘Citizen Kane’ , ‘M’, ‘ Rashomon’ or ‘A bout de souffle’ and the other sort which are still very well regarded but which seems rather dated like ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ , ‘The Wizard of Oz’ or ‘Gone with the Wind’ (Of course, it all depends what your taste is.
