Directed by: George Stevens
Starring: Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy
Synopsis: An uptown political columnist meets a downtown sports reporter. The first Hepburn-Tracy film.
The chemistry between Hepburn and Tracy is legendary and this movie is a great demonstration of it. Every time they appeared on the screen together, I was mesmerized.
There are lots of funny scenes -- Sam explaining baseball to Tess, Tess trying to make breakfast, Sam out of his element at parties -- and plenty of witty dialogue. One scene was a bit screwball for me but hey, it was only one.
I was a bit concerned about the way things appeared to be going towards the end, about what the ultimate message of the film was going to be. But I think it turned out ok. And yes, I'm a feminist.
Good movie. Definitely worth a rental.Added 19 August 2002 at 3:35 PM
