Adam's Rib

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1949. Vintage double weight photograph of Katharine Hepburn lounging on the set of the 1949 film. Mimeo snipe and Advertising Code "Approved" stamp, dated "Sep 9 1949" on verso.

For many, this sixth entry in the Hepburn-Tracy canon was the peak for the duo, a non-stop, brainy battle-of-the-sexes gabfest that epitomized the two at their very best. Written by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin, the same writing team who produced "Pat and Mike" the following year. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.

Set in and shot on location in New York City and Newtown, Connecticut.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with light creasing to right edge and tiny chip at the bottom right margin.

National Film Registry. Rosenbaum 1000. Byrge & Miller, The Screwball Comedy Films: A History and Filmography (1934-1942).
