1940 - The Philadelphia Story

1940 - The Philadelphia Story

Returning home to black-and-white after our fantastical romps through the Technicolor Sherwood Forest and Oz, our 1940 pick - based off another harrowing decade of trivia - is The Philadelphia Story. Starring, and practically conjured out of thin air by, Katharine Hepburn, alongside Cary Grant and James Stewart, this high-society romantic comedy produced some mixed opinions from the gang, aside from the universally appreciated acting and dialogue. Discussion ranges from questioning the movie’s message and the right way to wear swim trunks, to the difference between lighting a scene and lighting a set, as well as the structural integrity of golf clubs.
