Love Among the Ruins

In the prim, proper world of upper class England, an aging beauty is accused of having seduced and abandoned a man young enough to be her grandson - and now he is suing her for 50,000 pounds for breach of promise! She turns to the greatest barrister in the Empire to defend her, a man she seduced and abandoned some forty years earlier, who's remained hopelessly in love with her ever since! This witty and wonderfully poignant romantic comedy proved to be a one time only collaboration between acting luminaries Katherine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier. Directed by the esteemed George Cukor, this made-for-tv production was the recipient of 6 Emmy Awards.
