Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn (who won the Academy Award(r) for Best Actress for her performance) are unforgettable as perplexed parents in this landmark 1967 movie about mixed marriage. Joanna (Katharine Houghton), the beautiful daughter of crusading publisher Matthew Drayton (Tracy) and his patrician wife Christina (Hepburn), returns home with her new fiance John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), a distinguished black doctor. Christina accepts her daughter's decision to marry John, but Matthew is shocked by this interracial union; the doctor's parents are equally dismayed. Both families must sit down face to face and examine each other's level of intolerance. In GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER,director Stanley Kramer has created a masterful study of society's prejudices.

The All-star cast made the film work I just remembered it with more comedy & then topical messages.
It's still a classic film I perfected
"A Patch Of Blue" more so with Sidney & Elizabeth Hartman as the blind woman that falls in love with him not knowing they have color difference.
This was more of a Hollywood way of dealing very same issue.
This is a wonderful story about two families (mostly hers) coming to terms with a white woman and a black man's plans to be married.
It deals with many of the same issues and questions that are still being dealt with today and, because of that, is timeless.
Wonderfully - and sensitively - done. I use it in my classes to discuss issues of prejudice.
