Synopsis

Screen icons Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart and Katherine Hepburn join forces for one of the greatest romantic comedies ever made in George Cukor's Oscar-winning screwball classic "The Philadelphia Story" (1940). Socialite Tracy Lord (Hepburn) is getting married, and an honest reporter (Stewart) is there to get the story. It's a dull assignment until Tracy's ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven (Grant) shows up with a thirst for alcohol and a not-quite extinguished torch for his lovely one-time wife. With John Howard and Ruth Hussey.
