Summary It is a vastly entertaining behind-closed-doors glimpse into the lives of the troubled and troublemaking who's who of people invited to a posh Manhattan party, is served with ample helpings of humor and melodrama. Buoyed by the success of the studio's multi-starred, multistoried Grand Hotel the year before, producer David O. Selznick aspired to something grander and found it in this George Cukor-directed adaptation of the George S. Kaufman/Edna Ferber stage hit.
