THE PHILADELPHIA STORY (1940) 4 stars

George Cukor knew how to captivate audiences. This joyful and zany screwball comedy draws us in, thanks to its remarkable stars. The actors are perfectly cast. Hepburn, Grant and Stewart - what a line up! The appeal, is in watching these legendary actors play these roles with such fervor and humor. Stewart walked away with an Oscar. I suppose he knew what it was like being drunk. He certainly nailed it.
