watching Hepburn talking so adorable

Jimmy Stewart may have gotten the Oscar for this, but certainly Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant made an amazing pair and stole all the lights in their scenes together.

Funny, muddled but so well wrapped up

A wonderful farce, reminiscent of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. Very enjoyable.
