Classic Film Review – ADAM’S RIB

I often wonder if a contributing factor to the demise of a celebrity relationship is the pressure of media scrutiny. It’s not that the media is to blame for any conflict; it’s because the media tends to influence the public into picking sides, which leads me to wonder if each person in a struggling relationship is less willing to compromise because his/her side has been cemented in print (and in the court of public opinion).

Director George Cukor uses sharp comedy as his genre, the courtroom as his backdrop, and equality for women as his message, in Adam’s Rib (1949), a film that examines how a seemingly innocuous argument between two people (with growing notoriety) can spark a media frenzy – a frenzy which then contributes to the demise of their relationship.
