film on friday: The Philadelphia Story

I bought this for 9 bucks at Barnes and Noble! Woo hoo! It's one of my favorite movies. There's lots of drinking, getting shoved in the face, and Cary, Katharine, and Jimmy. 

There's also a child who isn't insufferable. This seems like it shouldn't surprise me, but I find most children in movies from this era are way to "Gee willikers!!" for my taste. This kid is great.

It's all super fantastic. A big takeaway from this movie? Rich people and drunk people of the olden days of yesteryear are superb. And if they happen to be one and the same, even better.
