    "I'm going crazy. I'm standing here solidly on my own two hands and I'm going crazy."

    Ever since I got into classic cinema, there's always one particular film that's been calling my name for some time, and that's The Philadelphia Story, a romantic comedy directed by George Cukor and starring some of the finest classic Hollywood stars in the history of film, Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, and Jimmy Stewart. It's also regarded by many classic movie buffs as one of…

    I'm not reviewing (or rating) this viewing because it was on in the background and didn't have my full attention. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to remove the rating from a subsequent review of a film so the four stars are from my previous viewing.

    One of the funniest movies of all time and probably my favourite ensemble.

    I had forgotten how delightful and funny this film is. Hepburn, Grant, and Stewart all play their roles perfectly. The performance Hepburn and Virginia Weidler put on for Stewart and Ruth Hussey is pure brilliance.

    A screwball comedy where the characters' eccentricities are actually developed, coherent character traits and the snappy dialogue is actually a series of probing attacks to reveal those traits. The script is great and the three main performances are very charming. I think you could argue that the film is unfair to Hepburn's character, who has to change for her man, but it is made clear that Grant's character has dealt with his own demons before the film's start, and she doesn't seem to have to change that much.

    Finally finally watched this masterpiece and was blown away back to the true era of Holllywood glamour and screenwriting gold. I adore Katharine Hepburn with every moment of the film and the rest of the cast dazzles just as bright.
    This is the kind of filmmaking that we should all miss. A script that's too sharp to touch and moves so fast that your head is spinning trying to keep up (but in the best way possible!) And acting that is just the right mix of vulnerability and over-the-top dramatic.

    Love.

    Featuring three great leads and three great characters, The Philadelphia Story succeeds as a witty romantic comedy. Cary Grant is especially great.

    I LOVE WHEN STRONG-WILLED, FORCE-TO-BE-RECKONED-WITH WOMEN ARE FOUGHT OVER BY MEN IN FILM.

    tracy lords doesn't let any man boss her around. she does as she pleases, and nothing can stop her from doing so. i only wish that nowadays, more characters were as powerful as her.

    I'd like to talk about the movie "The Philadelphia Story" for a moment. It features two of my all time favorite actors, (cue Jimmy voices please) Jimmy Stewart and (you don't say) Cary Grant, the two smoothest actors.

    If I grew up in the forties, I would want to be Jimmy Stewart. He was just classy. And Cary Grant was wily. Man, he would say some things and girls had to swoon. And guys would just be like, "He is…

    In the past, I've had a difficult time warming up to this film, mostly because it spends about 40 minutes in the middle of the movie setting up the protagonists and for the relationship(s) to go one way, only to pull the rug out at the last second. No real change on this viewing, considering all of the men in Hepburn's life are pretty shitty (PARTICULARLY her father), save Jimmy Stewart, who seems like the perfect foil for her from…
