Here comes the bride! And the ex-husband. And a gossip-rag columnist on assignment. Here come Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart in a peerless comedy romance (directed by George Cukor) about a faultfinding, bride-to-be socialite who gets her comeuppance and an unexpected Mr. Right.

After being labeled "box-office poison," Hepburn rekindled her stardom with a beguiling reprise of her 1939 Broadway role. Top-billed Grant demanded and got a then-colossal $137,000 salary -- donating it to British War Relief. And Stewart won his only Best Actor Academy Award as the wisecracking scribe. (Writer Donald Ogden Stewart won the film's second Oscar for adapting Philip Barry's play). In 1998, Story's success story continued when it made the American Film Institute's 100 Best American Films list.

            With a cest like this, how can you go wrong? Not surprisingly, the musical adaptation, "High Society" retained most of the dialogue ... word for word.

                Grant is great, Hepburn does more than emote from A to B, Stewart is well, Stewart and Ruth Hussey does a fine job as Stewart's reporter.

                      There isn't a second-rate performance in this wonderful farce. The chemistry among the characters is delightful and adds to the pleasure of watching this great comedy. "High Society," while entertaining, can't hold a candle to this original.

                          Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant are perfect together in this movie. They seem to feed off each others energy and throw in Jimmy Stewart just for fun. One I watch whenever it is on.

                            There wasn't a good moral to this movie. It seemed to show that no matter if you drink too much you can just step right into life without any difficulty.
