“Adam’s Rib” (MGM, 1949). It’s the battle of the sexes starring the classic on-screen duo of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. They play happily married attorneys representing opposite sides of a sensational attempted murder case. The case begins to humorously take its toll on their relationship as they question the behaviors, attitudes and societal roles of men and women and of each other. The top-notch supporting cast includes Judy Holliday, Tom Ewell and Jean Hagen. Quick-witted, sophisticated and thought-provoking. Written by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin. Directed by George Cukor. “Vive la différence!”
