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

Tess in the theatre; two dramatizations of Tess of the D'Urbevilles by Thomas Hardy( )

5 editions published between 1950 and 2019 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MARCH 2, 1947 marked the fiftieth anniversary of Mrs. Fiske's first presentation of Tess of the D'Urbervilles in the Fifth Avenue Theatre in New York. November 26, 1946, saw evidence of the theatre's revived interest in Hardy's novel when Miss Wendy Hiller first appeared in London at the New Theatre in Ronald Gow's dramatization of Tess. It seems to be particularly fitting at this time, therefore, to present the half-century's history of Tess of the D'Urbervilles on the stage together with the texts of significant dramatic versions
