Description

    The Philadelphia Story (MGM, 1940). Jumbo Window Card (22" X 28").
    Considered by many as "the film that saved Katharine Hepburn's career," The Philadelphia Story was a smash hit for MGM in 1940. Hepburn stars as Philadelphia heiress Tracy Lord (in a role written expressly for her) who plans to marry upstanding George Kittredge (John Howard). But the arrival of her ex-husband (Cary Grant) and a nosey tabloid reporter (James Stewart) threaten to rain on her parade. There were tears in the bottom borders, in Stewart's hair and the credits. There was also a slight crease in the left side and a vertical crack through the image. But following a fabulous restoration, this card presents remarkably well. Fine/Very Fine on Cardstock.
