Directed by George Cukor
USA 1938

 

 

  Barry's high-style comedy suited Hepburn wonderfully, and this satire on the egotism and selfishness of the upper classes (the wealthy) in the States gave her a vehicle so finely tuned that it paved the way for her even greater success two years later with an option on his The Philadelphia Story. Here she plays the older sister in a family which boasts an alcoholic brother and a younger sister engaged to a struggling lawyer (Grant) who brings a welcome note of dissension into the household. Naturally, he ends up with the sparky Ms Hepburn. Cukor's elegant grasp of the original drama ensures a silkily smooth transition from stage to screen.

Comments:

This is a repackaging of the exact same disc from The Cary Grant Boxset that was released in February of this year - reviewed HERE. Different package and different disc label but everything else is a duplication.

Lots of grain that looks more like digital noise and there are some damage scratches and marks. Overall it still looks quite acceptable although I'd love to see the same treatment that Hawk's Only Angels Have Wings (from the Cary Grant Boxset) received. My vote is to get the Boxset which has some strong pluses.
