The Philadelphia Story (1940)
#55 on my Top 100 List
In the first scene, Cary Grant punches his wife in the face and yet I still love him. I love everything about this movie, from the all-star cast (besides Cary Grant, most handsome man ever to grace the screen, it includes Katharine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart) to the slapstick plot to the hysterical scene between Jimmy Stewart's drunk Mike and Cary Grant's half-asleep CK Dexter Haven. The only thing that was strange for me was hearing the other characters call him Dexter or Dex, considering how much of the show Dexter I've been watching recently. Definitely not the same kind of character.
My Netflix rating: 5 stars
