Tracy & Hepburn: The Signature Collection
One of Hollywood's most famous on- and off-screen pairings got its start in the crackerjack comedy "Woman Of The Year" (1942). Spencer Tracy plays the gruff New York sports reporter who falls for international affairs writer Katharine Hepburn, but after they wed their competing careers threaten the marriage. With Reginald Owen; George Stevens directs. Then, husband-and-wife lawyers (Tracy and Hepburn) face the biggest case of their professional lives when they take opposite sides in the trial of a woman accused of trying to shoot her philandering husband, in "Adam's Rib" (1949). And, crisp direction from George Cukor and "cherce" Ruth Gordon/Garson Kanin dialogue highlight "Pat And Mike" (1952), a comedy about a shady sports promoter (Tracy) and his latest find, a college gym teacher (Hepburn). With William Ching, Aldo Ray. Four-disc set also includes the documentary "The Spencer Tracy Legacy: A Tribute By Katharine Hepburn." 6 1/2 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, French; theatrical trailers.
