The Philadelphia Story


After a great Friday night dinner at Janes, we felt like watching a fun movie, so we rented "The Philadelphia Story" again. It's a great film, with lots of "star power" - Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart are all great in it. Jimmy Stewart's "drunk scene" is especially good. In fact, I think that Jimmy might be replacing Cary in my affections. I also watched "Harvey" again a few weeks ago, and Jimmy was absolutely fantastic in it. In case you haven't seen "Harvey" it's a movie about a man who has a 6-foot tall invisible rabbit as a companion - I think it was a sort of pre-cursor to "Donnie Darko."

Anyhow, for the rest of the weekend, it's been work on my books. I am just going back into the studio now to get started. Then, maybe another classic film tonight, perhaps "Mr. Smith goes to Washington" - haven't seen that one yet. Ciao!

I noticed that you are a Cary Grant fan too (from your profile page) Oh, I could die! I adore him so much. Philadelphia Story is definitely my favorite (my cat Dexter is named after his character + my company is named after my cat, therefore...) and the writing is SO smart! Even after seeing it over + over I still laugh hysterically during the scene with Jimmy Stewart when they are both drunk after the party. I recently watched Charade yet another time, another movie with GREAT/ SMART writing, Suspicion is another. OK- they are (almost) all great! I could just go on with the exclamation points forever about him!
