So daring -- so tender -- so human -- so true -- that everyone in love will want to see it!
Johnny Cose (Cary Grant), a freethinking financier, has finally found the girl of his dreams — Julia Seton (Doris Nolan), the spoiled daughter of a socially prominent millionaire — and she's agreed to marry him. But when Johnny plans a holiday for the two to enjoy life while they are still young, his fiancée has other plans & that is for Johnny to work in her father's bank!

Cary's fantatstic in his role, and the entire supporting cast is stellar. Only Kate misses her mark by over-acting. I don't know if that was Cukor's fault, or if she was just being stubborn. Overall, though, well worth seeing, even if it is very clearly a first run at The Philadelphia Story.
