Directed by George Cukor

Starring Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart, and Cary Grant

(1940) Katharine Hepburn’s spoiled rich girl Tracy Lord casually enchants Spy reporter James Stewart (Oscar, Best Actor), who’s covering her second marriage, while fiancé John Howard and ex-hubby Cary Grant wait in the wings. 35mm. Approx. 112 min.

Reviews

“One of the essential American comedies.”
– David Thomson

“A DELIGHT FROM START TO FINISH. The wit still sparkles; the ambivalent attitude towards the rich and idle is still resonant; and the moments between Stewart and Hepburn, drunk and flirty on the moonlit terrace, tingle with a real, if rarely explicit, eroticism.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
