One of my favorites. Very talky (like most period pieces adapted from the stage), but with dialogue this witty it's impossible to complain. Hepburn won a well deserved Oscar for her performance (in the only Best Actress tie ever!), and the rest cast is uniformly excellent. Supremely quotable, with some of the most enjoyable bouts of scenery chewing ever rendered (Al Pacino and Robert De Niro should take notes). And a young Anthony Hopkins and Timothy Dalton to boot.
