The Philadelphia Story
THE PHILADELPHIA STORY boasts an incredible cast. Tracy Lord (Hepburn), a Philadelphia heiress, is about to marry coal-company executive George Kittridge (John Howard). The wedding, promising to be the season's premier event, attracts the attention of magazine publisher Sidney Kidd (Henry Daniell), who sees it as an opportunity to break a story. Spy magazine's Dexter Haven (Cary Grant), Lord's ex-husband, is enlisted to "gain access" to the party, along with top scandal writer Macauley Connor (James Stewart, in an Oscar-winning role). One of nine films Hepburn made with director George Cukor, it remains one of the classics of their collaboration and of American cinema.http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/philadelphia_story/
A little trivia:
One of the original titles of Philadelphia
, the drama starring Tom Hanks, was Philadelphia Story
. Perhaps "Story" was dropped so that these two very
different movies would not be confused with one another. It's also slightly serendipitous because Tom Hanks is often compared with Jimmy Stewart.
