Movies Adam’s Rib (MGM 1949, Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn) Published 4 months ago on October 14, 2018 Tracy and Hepburn at their best as two married lawyers who take opposite sides of a front-page case. District Attorney Tracy heads the prosecution when a pistol-packing blonde goes after her girl-chasing husband and his mistress. But wife Hepburn thinks women should have the right to do exactly what men have done for years–get revenge! So it’s Hepburn for the defense in a trial that proves all’s fair in love, war, and court. An ahead-of-its-time script by Gordon and Kanin, combined with the matchless chemistry between Hepburn and Tracy, make this a sophisticated piece of entertainment. Turned into a television sitcom in the early seventies. Adam’s Rib featured a star-making performance by Judy Holliday, who up to that point had played only bit parts. This film led to a lead role in Born Yesterday (1950), remade in 1993 with Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. production details USA | MGM | 101 minutes | 1949 Director: George Cukor Producer: Lawrence Weingarten Cinematography: George J.
