THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is, hands down, one of the funniest and most beloved screwball romantic comedies of all time. The outrageous plot revolves around a tabloid reporter (Stewart) sent to a society wedding who falls for the free-spirited bride (Hepburn) as she contemplates a reunion with her ex (Grant)—all while her current groom (Howard) protests ineffectually.
