In high school, I had to watch The Philadelphia Story for a class. I completely fell in love with the characters – and the actors who play them – and how they all worked with and played off of each other. With an all-star cast, it is definitely in my top 100 must-see movies of all time. It’s hilarious and dramatic. The word-vomit that spews from the lips of these characters is brilliant and refreshing.
From what I’ve read about this week’s movies, Hepburn was not a joy to work with, especially for directors. However, she did have quite a few scripts written for her, it seems, including this one. Grant, on the other hand, seemed to have been very easy to work with, for everyone, and donated his salary from this film to the British War Relief Society. Stewart won Best Actor at the academy awards, and the film also won Best Adapted Screenplay.
