She adjusts a stocking on one slim, elegant leg. He wanders in, admiring the view. She glances up ... and it's magic. It stayed magic for Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn for 25 years, from that first movie meeting in Woman of the Year through eight more classic films. Cinema fans who have long celebrated the remarkable couple's on-and-off screen partnership have more to celebrate with Tracy & Hepburn: The Definitive Collection, the only place to find all the films they made together, plus a glowing documentary about Tracy hosted by Hepburn. From witty, sophisticated comedies (Woman of the Year, Without Love, Adam's Rib, Pat and Mike, Desk Set) to trenchant dramas (Keeper of the Flame, The Sea of Grass, State of the Union) to their final film rich with laughs and tears (Guess Who's Coming to Dinner), this unique collection captures every moment of the incomparable Tracy-Hepburn screen magic

In the late 1940's, while the Soviet Union and the U.S. eyed each other over the Iron Curtain, conservative Americans at all levels of society worried about communist infiltration--especially in the movie industry, since that medium plays a huge role in shaping public perceptions and attitudes. This program reveals a time of McCarthyism and career-ending blacklists, a time when freedom of speech itself became a casualty in the desperate fight to protect democracy from "The red menace."

I'd hate myself in the morning : a memoir by Ring Lardner( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ring Lardner, Jr.'s memoir is a pilgrimage through the American century. The son of an immensely popular and influential American writer, Lardner grew up swaddled in material and cultural privilege. After a memorable visit to Moscow in 1934, he worked as a reporter in New York before leaving for Hollywood where he served a bizarre apprenticeship with David O. Selznick, and won, at the age of 28, an Academy Award for the classic film, Woman of the Year, the first on-screen pairing of Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn. In "irresistibly readable" pages (New Yorker), peopled by a cast including Carole Lombard, Louis B. Mayer, Dalton Trumbo, Marlene Dietrich, Otto Preminger, Darryl F. Zanuck, Bertolt Brecht, Bert Lahr, Robert Altman, and Muhammad Ali, Lardner recalls the strange existence of a contract screenwriter in the vanished age of the studio system--an existence made stranger by membership in the Hollywood branch of the American Communist Party. Lardner retraces the path that led him to a memorable confrontation with the House Un-American Activities Committee and thence to Federal prison and life on the Hollywood blacklist. One of the lucky few who were able to resume their careers, Lardner won his second Oscar for the screenplay to M.A.S.H. in 1970
