Hepburn and Tracy: Hollywood’s Perfect Couple
Arguably the most durable screen duo in cinema history, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy made nine films together from 1942 to 1967. They were also linked together romantically off-screen. Even though Tracy remained married to his wife until his death, he and Hepburn lived together discreetly for many years. See these acting legends in four of their greatest films. Fresh City Life will also be giving away a Hepburn/Tracy film on DVD during the talk back at the end of each film showing!
