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

Katsottua 2014 (501 movies items)

"29.9. 30- ja 40-lukujen screwball-komedioiden yleinen teema näyttäisi olevan eronneet/eroavat avioparit ja näiden välinen, yleensä riitainen, välien selvittely. Koska olen nähnyt tässä viime aikoina (kiitos 1001-projektin) enemmän screwball-komedioita kuin sielu sietää, tulin siihen lopputulokseen, että olen saanut niistä tarpeekseni. The Philadelphia Story kuitenkin yllätti positiivisesti: tilanteet eivät olleet pelkkää hassuttelua, eivätkä hahmot pinnallisia arkkityyppejä"

" The film's story is charming and entertaining, though not often laugh-out-loud funny. Katherine Hepburn was outstanding, James Stewart had some great moments, but I wouldn't say it's his best. Disappointing ending for me."
