In the chambers of a divorce court judge, Aldo Ray and Judy Holliday look back on their marriage, and the flashbacks begin, with 4th of July Central Park picnic a highlight. Screenplay by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin. “One of the more honest portraits of an average marriage… Everything about it – its sets, its costumes, its location shooting in New York City [the couple lives in the recently-opened Stuyvesant Town] – is grounded in reality… Holliday and Ray are a Hepburn and Tracy for the masses.” – Jeanine Basinger.
