***1/2 I loved a lot of it, but man does it center so much on men undermining Hepburn's self-worth. Cukor understands this, it seems, but the ending really compromises that perspective. A very complicated, conflicted comedy...
Adorably drunk Jimmy Stewart is the bright spot it what was otherwise a mostly mediocre affair (least for me). Alas, they all did look lovely...
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.
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!
the time to make up your mind about people is never

- That's probably so they can talk to the horses without having them in the house.
I love this film!
