Robert Benchley : and the knights of the Algonquin( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American humorist and satirist Robert Benchley began as a writer, but when Hollywood came calling, he adapted some of his most amusing pieces for film. In these wry filmic explorations of the headaches of everyday married life, and of the common man overmatched by seemingly mundane tasks, Benchley is often spoofing himself and the sophisticated, witty literati who made up the legendary Algonquin round table. The collection features another member of that group, Alexander Woollcott, as a fussy nightclub patron, and Donald Ogden Stewart, playwright and screenwriter, as a serious lecturer on fantastical, farcical subjects. This collection pays homage to the spirit that animated the New York literary scene in the 1920s and '30s, as preserved by Hollywood for America's enjoyment

"With this furiously witty comedy of manners, Katharine Hepburn revitalized her career and cemented her status as the era's most iconic leading lady--thanks in great part to her own shrewd orchestrations. While starring in the Philip Barry stage play The Philadelphia Story, Hepburn acquired the screen rights, handpicking her friend George Cukor to direct. The intoxicating screenplay by Donald Ogden Stewart pits the formidable Philadelphia socialite Tracy Lord (Hepburn, at her most luminous) against various romantic foils, chief among them her charismatic ex-husband (Cary Grant) who disrupts her imminent marriage by paying her family estate a visit, accompanied by a tabloid reporter on assignment to cover the wedding of the year (James Stewart, in his only Academy Award-winning performance). A fast-talking screwball comedy as well as a a tale of regret and reconciliation, this convergence of golden-age talent is one of the greatest American films of all time"--Container
