Dialogue

THE KAT has had The Philadelphia Story on Turner Classic Movies as background this evening. This features George Cukor at the helm of some of the best dialogue ever put to the screen. I still laugh out loud at so much of this, particularly Jimmy Stewart‘s line, “C. K. Dexter Haven, you have unsuspected depth!”

Not too many movies with dialogue like this anymore. But then perhaps there never were too many movies with dialogue like this.
