Woman of the Year

George Stevens (director)
Ring Lardner Jr., Michael Kanin (screenwriters)
Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn (starring)

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1942. Vintage borderless studio still photograph of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn from the 1942 film.

The first pairing of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, and the beginning of their lifelong love affair. They would go on to make eight more films together. A battle-of-the-sexes screwball comedy, wherein a gruff sportswriter and a progressive upper-crust political columnist fall in love and marry, only to find their careers straining the marriage. Winner of an Academy Award for Best Screenplay, and nominated for Best Actress for Hepburn.

9.5 x 7.5 inches. Very Good plus.
