Love Among The Ruins 1975

December 31, 2011

Love Among The Ruins was Katharine Hepburn‘s 40th Film and 2nd made for TV movie.
Plot: Jessica Medlicott (Hepburn) a famous British stage actress who’s husband of 40 years has passed away, is swept away in a romance with a man much much younger than she. After she realizes what she is doing she quickly breaks off the engagement. The young man and his mother sue Mrs. Medlicott for damages. She hires Sir Arthur Glanville-Jones (Sir. Lauernece Oliver), the best lawyer in town to defend her. Glanville-Jones, as it turns out, was one of Mrs. Medlicott’s suiters from years past and has never really gotten over her. Mrs. Medlicott doesn’t remember but by the end of the film it all comes back to her.
This was a delightful little movie. It is a romantic comedy. The court room offers some pretty funny scenes. I had never seen it before today but had always wanted to. It has never been released on DVD in the USA. I happened to find it on youtube last night and was able to watch it today for the first time. I loved it. I would highly recommend it to all.
