Tracy Lord, of the Philadelphia Lords, is a spoiled daughter of the privileged. She's about to marry for the second time. Just days before the wedding a reporter and a camera woman arrive to document the event for a gossip magazine as part of a deal to cover up Tracy's father's affair with a Broadway dancer. Coincidentally her ex-husband shows up as well. The result is comedy, drama and suspense as Tracy confronts the four men in her life: the very appealing reporter, her ex-husband, her fiancé and her father. The Philadelphia Story has been a play, a film, a Broadway musical and a movie musical as well. A deeply satisfying story indeed.
