Abstract:

A sophisticated screwball comedy, rife with smart dialogue, the Philadelphia Story centers on the society event of the season: the second marriage of icy, judgmental, moneyed socialite Tracy Lord to nouveau riche George Kittredge. Her first husband, suave and devilish C.K. Dexter Haven, complicates matters by finagling wedding invitations for incognito reporter Mike Connor and his photographer Liz Imbrie, to do a tell-all exposé. But Haven's motives for giving the tabloid access to Tracy's big day may not be as mercenary and mean-spirited as they first appear.
