Tired Old Queen at the Movies: Adam's Rib

Steve Hayes dishes up another fabulous review of a Hollywood classic, one of your Head Trucker's favorites:
Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn take the battle of the sexes to hilarious heights in George Cukor's classic courtroom comedy ADAM'S RIB (1949). Based on an original screenplay by the married writing team of Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon, ADAM'S RIB sparkles with their sophisticated humor that's mixed with a dash of slapstick, and will have you rolling in the aisles. Judy Holliday adds magnificent comic support in the role that landed her "Born Yesterday." She's backed up by the equally fine Tom Ewell, Jean Hagan, Hope Emerson, and David Wayne as a composer who seems to possess a touch of bi-sexual tendencies. It's the only way to have a great day in court!

Marvelous movie... sparkling with wit and ace comic timing. I never understood them as a couple, but I fell in love with Katherine after watching this. - Uptonking from Wonderland Burlesque

What's not to understand? Go read her autobiography, "Me," and you'll see that they were each just what the other needed.
