Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart shine in this classic romantic comedy.

The deliciously witty script is executed to perfection by the three lead actors and deftly directed by George Cukor.

‘The film is a Hepburn triumph, and moviegoers who resent the theatre's habit of requisitioning their stars may feel that Miss Hepburn's time on the stage has not been spent in vain and that she simply prepared herself for this achievement’ – John C Mosher, The New Yorker

‘This frothy theatre adaptation dates from the period when Hollywood had pretty much perfected the art of the romantic comedy’ – Wendy Ide, The Times
