Arguably the best of the nine movies Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn made together over the course of 25 years, this 1949 gem finds Tracy playing an attorney who prosecutes a woman (Judy Holliday) charged with shooting her philandering husband (David Wayne). His personal and professional lives get turned upside down when his wife (Hepburn), also a lawyer, elects to defend the accused. This smart and sophisticated comedy, an Academy Award nominee for its screenplay, is being shown as part of the Main Library series Order in the Court: Seven Classic Courtroom Movies.
