Four films from the legendary on/off screen duo: Woman of the Year (George Stevens, 1942); Pat and Mike (George Cukor, 1952); Adam's Rib (George Cukor, 1949); Keeper Of The Flame (George Cukor, 1942). 

The classic comedy Woman of the Year (1942) was the film which united the couple both off screen and on. She's a ladylike sportswoman, he's a streetwise promoter who tries to make a champion of her ('aint much meat on her but what there is is choice!'). A fine romance with subtle, understated direction from Cukor, and a wonderfully witty script by the Kanins. 

In Keeper of the Flame (1942) a widely-revered politician dies when his car runs off a bridge. Seasoned hack Steve O'Malley (Tracy) begins researching a biography on the man, and, through the revelations of his widow Christine (Hepburn), uncovers a number of dark secrets about him. 

Adam's Rib (1949). A laid-back Tracy and an energetic Hepburn are excellent foils in this witty, warm and sometimes hilarious battle of the sexes. A perfect example of the felicitous pairing of Hepburn and Tracy in romantic comedy. With a screenplay by husband and wife team Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon. 

In Pat and Mike (1952) Pat Pemberton (Hepburn) is a PE teacher at a southern Californian college, who is persuaded by shady sports promoter Mike Conovan (Tracy) to become a professional athlete. As she flourishes in a number of disciplines, the couple begin to fall in love - although there are plenty of hurdles in the way of their eventual happiness.
