This 1939 Broadway hit comedy centers on Tracy Lord of the Philadelphia Lords, a headstrong and spoiled daughter of the privileged. Preparing for her second wedding, she finds herself pulled in different directions by her fiancée, her ex-husband, and an attractive reporter sent by a gossip weekly to cover the events. As the wedding day dawns, Tracy learns a number of things about all three men, and in the process learns some things about herself.
