Love Among the Ruins
An outstanding, multi-award-winning romantic comedy, written especially for Hepburn and Olivier, acting together for the first time and each winning an Emmy Award. Hepburn plays an aging actress being sued for breach of promise and Olivier is a blunt barrister, her one-time lover, who must destroy her reputation to protect her fortune. George Cukor made his TV directorial debut here and also won an Emmy, as did James Costigan for his witty, elegant teleplay. The film also won Emmy Awards for art and set decoration and for costumes, and was given the Peabody Award in addition.
