I actually like this Grant and Hepburn pairing even better than The Philadelphia Story! The theme that love and independence are what's really important and that riches are not the be all and end all of life is very inspirational. Grant and Hepburn, and even Grant and Nolan at the beginning, have great chemistry and bring their characters to wonderful life. The supporting cast complements them perfectly. Cukor did a masterful job converting the story from the stage to the screen and coaxing the performances out of his cast. This is simply a wonderful movie, 9/10.
