Comment
Katherine Hepburn is a wealthy woman who is about to get married for the second time when her ex-husband (Cary Grant) arrives with a tabloid reporter (James Stewart) and a photographer (Ruth Hussey). There then follows some wonderful comedy as the characters play out their roles. This is a great film from three good actors at the top of their skills. Katherine Hepburn had played the role on stage and then aquired the film rights and gave another good performance on screen.
