Finer actors never lived, and these are the performances of a lifetime for each of them.

Macaulay Connor: Thank thee." :D
When drunk James Stewart with hiccups sits down with Cary Grant. Ugh, the best part of the film.
Funny and clever movie. See it.
“Whiskey is a slap on the back and champagne is a heavy mist before my eyes”
Were humans ever so sophisticated as they are here? Marvelous in "almost" every way (I can never get past Tracy forgiving her shitty father after the way he talks to her).
Katharine Hepburn's voice is amazing.
Savvy work with technical composition as fine as its cracklin' script
What a joy this film was. I want to live in it!
Character ensemble, romance, and that particular 40's glow collide in a picture that is a classic romantic comedy. Always enjoyable and endearing, this film is one that makes me feel comfortable every time I put it on, like a visit from an old friend.
A classic comedy to be certain, but not one of my favorites. Perhaps I need to revisit it, as I have since found similar comedies of the era that I love.
I love all the actors in this movie, although Katharine Hepburn is my favourite. The whole thing is just so much fun!
Des dialogues irrésistibles sous un ton de parodie de la haute société américaine, une comédie sublime
The pacing could be a little tighter at times yes, but re-watching today I came to the conclusion that the bits with Jimmy Stewart drunk as well as his love scenes with Hepburn are as likable a movies can possibly get.
This is one of my all-time favorite movies. The acting and writing are fantastic. What can be wrong with Grant, Hepburn, and Stewart. This is a classic that all should see. I know that Binging Up Baby is considered the ultimate Hepburn/Grant pairing, but this is does it for me.
While some of its attitudes are mightily outdated, especially toward Tracy Lord, the peerless class more than makes up for it in this classic farce. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2009/12/course-of-true-love-gathers-no-moss.html
Oh god, this is such a wise film. Plus Katherine is a GREAT actress.
Katharine Hepburn is stunning as the strong-willed woman who finds herself torn between two men. Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart complement each other perfectly as the men in her life. The hilarity of The Philadelphia Story still holds up after all these years when the rom-com seems to be circling the drain.
Oh dear, oh Lord. Just discovered Catherine Hepburn. I'm stunned. I know, I know - kinda late. I so need to see more of her. The cast was fascinating.
eso se llama diálogos. son tan rápidos y agudos que no se agotan ni asimilan en un primer visionado
Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn and James Stewart, wonderfully directed... I simply could not ask more than this!
Excellent performances by the leading cast.
Witty and jaunty, sure, but I found the ending to be terribly contrived so as to somewhat ruin the story preceding it. Sufficient yet stuffy performances abound (even allowing for the time period it was made in), yet young Virginia Weidler is a breath of fresh air, who sadly only acted for another three years. All in all, an interesting watch but one I probably won't revisit again anytime soon.
