The Philadelphia Story Synopsis


Classic comedic farce about a socialite who's wedding is interrupted by the inopportune arrival of her first husband. A Katharine Hepburn tour de force although she is supported admirably by co-stars Cary Grant and James Stewart (he even took home the Best Acting Academy Award for his performance.)
