This classic romantic comedy stars Hollywood legends Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. Bunny Watson (Hepburn) heads up the research department at a TV network.

Reviews

Bosley Crowther New York Times | March 25, 2006

[Miss Hepburn and Mr. Tracy] can tote phone books on their heads or balance feathers on their chins and be amusing -- which is about the size of what they do here.

Dave Kehr Chicago Reader | January 01, 2000

The least, perhaps, of the Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn collaborations...this 1957 comedy is nevertheless a bright and witty vehicle for its stars, directed well and anonymously by that fine old hack Walter Lang.
