Description

James Stewart, Cary Grant, and the unstoppable Katharine Hepburn star in Hollywood’s greatest romantic comedy…

With this furiously witty comedy of manners, KATHARINE HEPBURN (Woman of the Year) revitalized her career and cemented her status as the era’s most iconic leading lady – thanks in great part to her own shrewd orchestrations. While starring in the PHILIP BARRY stage play The Philadelphia Story, Hepburn snapped up the screen rights, handpicking her friend GEORGE CUKOR (Adam’s Rib) to direct. The intoxicating screenplay by DONALD OGDEN STEWART (Holiday) pits the formidable Philadelphia socialite Tracy Lord (Hepburn, at her most luminous) against various romantic foils, chief among them her charismatic ex-husband (His Girl Friday’s CARY GRANT), who disrupts her imminent marriage by paying her family estate a visit, accompanied by a tabloid reporter on assignment to cover the wedding of the year (JAMES STEWART, in his only Academy Award®–winning performance). A fast-talking screwball comedy as well as a tale of regrets and reconciliation, this convergence of golden-age talent is one of the greatest American films of all time.

For European Delivery, we can offer you a standard 3-6 day delivery window, starting from the very moment that the goods are despatched.

Please note that all delivery times are subject to courier company. European delivery rates will be calculated at basket depending on where you are and what you’re buying.

Delivery FAQs

Q | How will I know when my order has been sent?
As soon as your order is despatched from our warehouse, you'll be sent an email just to confirm that it's on its journey to you (remember to check your spam if you've not ordered from us before). You can check the status of your order in your account by clicking here.

Q | Once my order has been despatched, when will I receive it? 
From the time you receive your despatch confirmation email we would expect you to receive your order:

  1. For Standard UK delivery 3-5 working days for deliveries within the UK once goods are despatched. If it does happen - on the off chance - to take any longer than this time period to reach you, Royal Mail policy requests we wait 10 working days to pass before classifying an item as "lost".
  2. 1st Class UK delivery: 1-2 working days once goods are despatched provided orders are placed prior to 12:00 (see above).
  3. Next Day UK delivery: next day delivery as long as orders are placed by 12:00 Monday to Thursday only.
  4. Standard Delivery to all other European Union Countries should take 3-6 working days once goods are despatched provided orders are placed prior to 12:00.

Q | Do you charge for delivery? 
We offer FREE delivery on a wide range of our products. UK delivery is always free over £30. We offer a range of delivery options at varying costs. Delivery to other countries in the European Union starts from £2.99.

Q | What do I do if I have not received my order? 
If your order doesn't arrive within 10 working days - contact us straight away so that we can investigate further. Please note: if you do not receive your order and you do not notify us within 30 days after despatch, we reserve the right not to refund or replace it.

Q | One of the items is missing from my order. What do I do? 
We endeavour to ship your whole order in as few packages as possible but sometimes items are sent separately. All items that should be in your package should be listed on your delivery note. If this does not match, please let us know straight away.

To give you some peace of mind, we'll be sure to send you an email to let you know when each item is on its way. Pre-orders placed with other items will be despatched separately prior to release day.

Q | What happens if I am not at home to accept my delivery? 
Due to the size of most of our products, usually they don't require you to be at home to take delivery as they will fit through your letterbox.

In the event that you have ordered products which will not fit through your letterbox, (and you aren't in to take delivery) then the postal service will follow their usual procedure. For UK orders this usually means a card is left to notify you of an attempted delivery and the item will be held at your local sorting office. For items attempted for delivery by a courier service they will also leave a card and allow you to arrange for redelivery or collection.

Q | Am I able to change the delivery address to something other than my registered PayPal address? 
For the time being, we're unable to deliver your order to an alternative address - meaning all items will be posted to the address that's linked to your PayPal account.

Q | Do you deliver on Bank Holidays? 
Bank Holidays are not classed as working days so we don't include these in our estimated delivery times. On these days, you can expect your delivery on the next working day following the Bank Holiday.

If you've got any more burning questions regarding our delivery options, you can contact our customer services at customerservice@zoom.co.uk. You'll be able to catch them Monday to Friday between the hours 8:30-17:30.
