Rich, haughty and spoilt, Tracy Lord is about to get married for the second time, to the solid but stuffy George Kittredge. But she's reckoned without Macaulay Connor, a reporter who's been sent to cover her wedding in the country near Philadelphia, and her quick-thinking, free-drinking first husband C K Dexter Haven. The presence of both men at her pre-nuptial party, the collision of the volatile emotions of the trio, combined with a drunken midnight swim, provokes Tracy into learning some painful lessons, and taking an unaccustomed look into her own heart.
