Made for television, Love Among the Ruins features one of Cukor’s greatest one-off on-screen pairings: Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier. Hepburn stars as Jessica Medlicott, a widowed actress in Edwardian London, who requires a lawyer for a sensitive personal case. The attorney she chooses is a long-ago lover (Olivier). Writer James Costigan won an Emmy for his script.
