3.0 out of 5 stars "I'm testing the air. I like it but it doesn't like me.", 7 Nov. 2005
This review is from: The Philadelphia Story [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
George Cukor's "The Philadelphia Story" features a cast that is a filmlover's dream. One can only gape in awe at seeing Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart all together in the same production.
Reporters Mike Connor (Stewart) and Liz Imbrie (Ruth Hussey) infiltrate Philadelphia high society so that they can get the scoop on the high profile wedding of Tracy Lord (Hepburn). Into the mix is thrown Tracy's former husband, C. K. Dexter Haven (Grant) who starts to hang around his ex-wife in an attempt to win her back. As Tracy comes closer to her wedding day, she starts to doubt whether a conventional marriage is the right choice for her after all.
"The Philadelphia Story" is another of those well-done energetic comedies that were so common in the Thirties and Forties. While less chaotic than many of its screwball comedy contemporaries due to its stage play origins, this film is still a breezy and delightful treat. Hepburn is her usual wonderful self and Stewart and Grant are hilarious are the two men stalking her every move in the moments leading up to her wedding. Also of note is the performance turned in by Ruth Hussey. She more than manages to keep pace with the three screen giants and has her own fair share of memorable scenes. All in all, "The Philadelphia Story" is an entertaining cinematic work that boasts a degree of star power that is nothing short of amazing.
