The Philadelphia Story (1940)

Classic comedy with a dream team of Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and Katherine Hepburn. Kate is Tracy, a wealthy woman who is about to remarry. Grant is her ex-husband who pops by the weekend of the wedding. And Jimmy is a reporter trying to get an exclusive for the wedding event of the year. They all converge at Tracy's huge estate and the fireworks soon begin. This is classic golden age comedy right here. Kate is simply amazing. Jimmy Stewart is really funny. And Mr. Grant is kinda laid back in this one, but he is still very good. This is one for the ages.

One of my favorite Hepburn films. Everyone is excellent in this. One of my top 100 films of all time.
