THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is a story of independent but haughty Tracy Lord who discovers that her second marriage is the focus of a scandal magazine’s expose´ of Philadelphia high society. Tracy’s brother has arranged the expose´ to divert attention from father’s romance with a Broadway dancer, and invited a reporter and photographer to cover the wedding. Though determined to keep her family’s affairs private, Tracy finds herself attracted to Mike, the fascinating reporter, with whom she takes a late night swim after a few too many drinks. Upon discovering the apparent indiscretion, her fiancé is less than understanding while ex-husband, Dexter, makes every attempt to quell Tracy’s feelings of guilt. Torn between feelings for Mike and Dexter, and aided by her precocious sister, Dinah, Tracy must rediscover her authentic self amidst the trappings of social class; wealth and media scrutiny.
