Kate and Spence
23 September 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Widow golfer, college coach and all-around smarty pants Katharine Hepburn (as Patricia "Pat" Pemberton) is engaged to administrator William Ching (as Collier Weld) until sports agent Spencer Tracy (as Mike Conovan) admires her swing. She's "frazzled" by her fiancé, but Ms. Hepburn is confident and successful under Mr. Tracy's tutelage. This results in Hepburn messing up golf and tennis shots when Mr. Ching is watching. You might want to bet on romance blooming between Tracy and Hepburn...

The film is full of familiar faces. You may recognize a caddy, bartender, busboy and policeman - half of them fighting in an amusing scene with Tracy, Hepburn and Charles Bronson...

Featured supporting actor Aldo Ray (as David "Davie" Hucko) makes a memorable impression as Tracy's slow-witted boxer. Sammy White and George Matthews are good in smaller roles. The comedy situation is slight, and some of it is as exciting as watching golf - but at least Hepburn is playing. Director George Cukor with writers Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin, the winning team from "Adam's Rib" (1949), knew how to score with Tracy and Hepburn. There may be fewer points here, but it's still a win.

****** Pat and Mike (6/13/52) George Cukor ~ Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Aldo Ray, William Ching
