THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is a classic upper-crust comedy. A brilliant adaptation of the Philip Barry play set in the high society of the Philadelphia "Mainline." Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn) is a wealthy heiress in search of romance. Cary Grant plays her ex-husband, and James Stewart won an Academy Award® for his role as the reporter who falls in love with her.
"Not only possesses extremely witty dialogue, but also an excellent cast."
