Philadelphia Story: Grant, Hepburn, Stewart

6 Jun

I want to share with you one of my all-time favorite rom-coms. To begin with, it has three of my favorite stars from the 1940’s in it, and there is a romantic quadrangle (or maybe pentagram).

After putting a bit of thought into this, I decided that this was the best way to start off our Vintage Sweetheart movie collection. After all, how can you go wrong with Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, and James Stewart? So you might have seen it in the post, but in case you were wondering, the name of the movie is…

The Philadelphia Story

The Wedding Day Dawns

So what makes this story classic other than the all-star cast and the splendid outfits? The storyline!

Tracy Lord [Hepburn] is just about to married for the second time when upon her doorstep appears her ex-husband [Grant]  and two reporters [Stewart] from an illustrious gossip magazine. After resisting the urge to throw them all out on their respective ears, she agrees to let them stay for the wedding due to an indiscretion of her father that will hit the pages instead if she refuses.

Then she starts to learn about herself. Tracy is too prone to not accepting the weaknesses in other people, and she is revered as a goddess on a pedestal. She decided she wants to be human, and after a particularly exciting pre-wedding party, her fiance is feeling compromised because of the reporter… so who does she end up with?

I hate being a movie rat, so I can not tell you. But take the time to enjoy The Philadelphia Story!
