The ultimate romantic comedy has to be this high-society love triangle that has  divorce  and put up with his resistance when she announces she is getting married again. In comes earnest reporter to throw a wrench in the whole thing by getting the bride’s attention. Hepburn revived her failing film career when she left bankrupt RKO and entered MGM with the rights to this film’s original play tucked safely under her arm. Hilariously comical and full of richly romantic moments, this film is sure not to disappoint any viewer.
