Thursday Night at th
Main Library
Thursday, Feb. 12, 6:00 p.m.
Tess (Katherine Hepburn) and Sam (Spencer Tracy) are columnists for a New York newspaper; she writes about politics while he writes about sports.  He invites her to a baseball game, romance blossoms and they get married.  But can they stay in love when she outshines him once she is elected “woman of the year?”

This is the first outing for Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, but it would not be the last.  Many people believe they fell for each other during filming this movie.  Even though Tracy was unhappily married and never divorced his wife, they remained a couple for the rest of his life. 

Woman of the Year is 114 minutes and is in Black and White.  It came out in 1942, and is unrated.  For further information, call the Reference Department at 595-1243.
