Brand New 2K Master! From George Cukor, the legendary director of A Bill of Divorcement, Dinner at Eight, Holiday, The Women, The Philadelphia Story, Adam’s Rib and My Fair Lady, comes this romantic comedy-drama starring screen legends Katharine Hepburn (The Lion in Winter, Bringing Up Baby) and Laurence Olivier (Rebecca, Sleuth). Made for television, Love Among the Ruins was a precious one-time-only collaboration between stars Hepburn and Olivier. The scene is Victorian London, where wealthy widow Hepburn is being sued for breach of promise by her much-younger ex-fiancé. Olivier is the highly respected barrister engaged to defend Hepburn in court. The usually reserved Olivier relishes the opportunity to see Hepburn, who 40 years earlier had been his lover. He is driven to hilarious distraction by Hepburn’s adamant insistence that she has never seen him before in her life. Winner of 6 Emmy Awards including Actor (Olivier), Actress (Hepburn), Direction (Cukor) and Writing by three-time Emmy winner James Costigan (Eleanor and Franklin, Little Moon of Alban). Co-starring the wonderful Colin Blakely (The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes) with a rousing musical score by the great John Barry (The Ipcress File, Out of Africa) and top-notch cinematography by the celebrated Douglas Slocombe (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Robbery).
