Format: DVD
"The Philadelphia Story" concerns itself with Tracy Lord (Katherine Hepburn), a spoiled socialite scheduled to remarry when her first husband, C.K. Dexterhaven (Cary Grant)shows up to pitch some rice and mayhem. Add to the mix, Mike Connor (James Stewart) a reporter who is supposed to be covering the wedding for the tabloids but winds up falling for Tracy himself.
The play on which the movie is based has an interesting backstory. At this point in her career, for various reasons, Katherine Hepburn had been branded "box office poison". Unable to find suitable work in Hollywood, Ms. Hepburn decided to do the next best thing - get playwrite, Philip Barry to write her a hit. And so he did. The Broadway production of "The Philadelphia Story" was a phenomenal success. However, when L.B. Mayer, the head of MGM, decided that he simply had to have the rights to the play he discovered that Barry didn't own them - Katherine Hepburn did. Hence, the only way to make the movie was to cast box office poison in the lead. What good fortune that he did, since the film revitalized Katherine Hepburn's image with the movie going public and launched her career through another six decades of wonderful performances.
Now, about the DVD. Warner Home Video has inherited another MGM Home Video import with "The Philadelphia Story". Having said that, this one's pretty good looking. Yes, there is fine grain, dirt, scratches and aging present throughout. There's also some rare instances of edge enhancement and shimmering details. But these are minute and do not distract one from enjoying this fantastic film. The gray scale (it's a B&W movie) is well balanced. Contrast and shadow levels are accurately defined. The soundtrack is mono as originally recorded. At times there is a slight background hiss that crops up but overall, the audio is remarkably well represented. There are no extras.
BOTTOM LINE: YES.

The film is, of course, wonderful. What you probably want to know is that the DVD is a nice clean transfer with great contrast. On a big screen it almost looks like you're watching it on a film print. If you like screw-ball comedies or happen to be a fan of the stars, definately get this DVD.

It wears its age in a charming manner, and its themes are no less relevant today. Great storyline, wonderfully romantic moments and a strong cast with equally strong acting, it deserves all good things which have been written of it to this day. The story behind the movie is interesting, and almost as good as the film. Should be in every film buff's library.

If you have not seen this film at least once in your life and / or are concerned about the choice you have made for a potential (marriage) partner then rent or buy this film now. Never get tired of Philadelphia Story. Everyone is amazing, especially Hepburn and Stewart and even Grant (whom I have never been fond of). Far better than the 1956 remake High Society with Grace Kelly.

What is there not to love about this movie - great actors with Hepburn, Grant and Stewart and stellar supporting actors that bring to life a well-written script. The banter between Hepburn and Grant is brilliant.

Tracy Lords is getting married again. This time to a man who worked his way to the top instead of starting there. Dexter her first husband invites himself to the wedding and the wedding preparations. Also inviting their selves with a little blackmail to the wedding is a writer, and photographer, from a magazine of dubious reputation.

Throw in a philandering father and a friendly uncle. We watch as they go through the motions and emotions of courting and re-evaluating their lives.

This is basically a comedy and yes it has all the actors and writers to make this a piece of cinematic art. However you will find it is just fun to watch.

This is my absolute favorite performance by the great Katherine Hepburn. She is breathtaking and absolutely wonderful. Brilliant performances all across the board, an especially funny performance by James Stewart is just the icing on the cake. Cary Grant,one of my faves, also delivers a magnificent performance. Also worth mentioning is the very beautiful Ruth Hussey, whose potrayal of Liz is stunning. She was one of the most attractive actresses at the time, in my humble opinion. This movie is very funny and the sets and costumes are among the best Hollywood has ever offered. I highly recommend this as a must own.
