‘The Philadelphia Story’ is back on the big screen

When a rich woman’s ex-husband and a tabloid reporter turn up just before her planned remarriage, she begins to learn the truth about herself in George C. Cukor’s 1940 classic “The Philadelphia Story,” returning to the big screen at Bainbridge Cinemas for a special one-night-only event at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21.

Starring Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart and featuring Ruth Hussey, and based on the Broadway play of the same name by Philip Barry, the film is about a socialite whose wedding plans are complicated by the simultaneous arrival of her ex-husband and a tabloid magazine journalist.

The socialite character of the play — as played by Hepburn in the film — was reportedly inspired by Helen Hope Montgomery Scott (1904–1995), a Philadelphia socialite known for her hijinks who married a friend of the original playwright.

“The Philadelphia Story” was produced by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1995.
