Hollywood Comedy Classics Screening: The Philadelphia Story

June 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Films at the Library in June focus on the genre of screwball romantic comedy classics, exemplified by The Philadelphia Story, starring Cary Grant, Kathleen Hepburn, and James Stewart. The Library welcomes all to a free screening of this much-loved classic.
This 1940 comedy focuses on Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn), a Philadelphia socialite who has split from her husband, C.K. Dexter Haven (Cary Grant), due both to his drinking and to her overly demanding nature. As Tracy prepares to wed the wealthy George Kittredge (John Howard), she crosses paths with both Dexter and prying reporter Macaulay Connor (James Stewart). Unclear about her feelings for all three men, Tracy must decide whom she truly loves.
