I love this movie, not so much because of the interracial context (although I do) but because it's Tracy/Hepburn. It was their last film together and with Katharine's niece who many believed to be their "love child" raised by her sister. Because of Tracy's years of alcoholism, reciting lines had become near impossible, but Katharine, always his champion, would feed them to him out of sight of the camera. The last scene, in which the spotlight was solely on Spencer, shows him making an argument for and against the relationship of the two young adults. But, he at one point goes "off script" and you see it as the camera pans the faces of the other actors in the scene, emotions rise to the surface of the women and the men sit completely enthralled as Tracy takes the opportunity, disguised as his character, to tell the world how much he has loved Katharine. Ten days after the movie wrapped, Katharine found Spencer on his kitchen floor as he had finally succumbed to the disease that had plagued him for so many years. If you've watched prior to knowing the back story, I urge you watch again.. it's worth your time.
