Re: What watching?
I don't remember The Philadelphia Story well and I know I don't remember whether I liked it more than The Awful Truth but regardless I don't think one has to exist at the determent of the other. For movies that beg comparison, I know that I know that I also watched Holiday around the same time I watched The Philadelphia Story, and I liked Holiday better.
I also recent rewatched The Awful Truth, although with Make Way For Tomorrow, which Leo McCarey made the same year. I think Make Way is his best movie. It's heartbreaking. I watched them back to back and I'm glad I watched The Awful Truth second because that one is fun.
