Tess and Sam work on the same newspaper and don't like each other very much. At least the first time, because they eventually fall in love and get married. But Tess is a very active woman and one of the most famous feminists in the country; she is even elected as "the woman of the year." Being busy all the time, she forgets how to really be a woman and Sam begins to feel neglected.Written by

Reportedly, Katharine Hepburn's first words to Spencer Tracy were, "Mr. Tracy, I believe I am too tall for you" (Hepburn was 5'9" and Tracy was 5'10½"). Producer Joseph Mankiewicz said, "Don't worry, honey. He'll soon cut you down to size." See more »
After Sam and Tess meet, he crumples the paper he is holding and drops it into an ash can. When it falls into the can, it is not wadded up. See more »
this film sparkles like champagne. Okay the plot is flimsy, not to mention corny, but the magnetism and chemistry that goes on between Tracy and Hepburn is enough to keep you enthralled for hours. The dialogue is witty and snappy, and there are many hilarious moments not to be missed. It's lovely to see such an old fashioned fun movie that makes you laugh and cry at the same time. The most wonderful moment in the film has got to be when they kiss for the first time, it's wonderful, and you can feel the warmth between them.
