The Philadelphia Story
Director: George Cukor Run Time: 113 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1940
Starring: Cary Grant, James Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Ruth Hussey
Hands down one of the funniest and most beloved screwball romantic comedies of all time, THE PHILADELPHIA STORY revolves around a tabloid reporter (Stewart) sent to a society wedding who falls for the free-spirited bride (Hepburn) while she contemplates a reunion with an old flame (Grant).
Gerwig describes Hepburn’s character as a direct inspiration for BARBIE: “She’s unflappable and then she starts falling apart, and that’s actually where she finds herself.”
“A witty, wordy masterpiece.” – Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy
