From what I've read and from interviews I've seen of Katherine Hepburn, this character may be the closest one she played to herself and it's a great performance. But, the script needed a bit of tweaking. The ideas in the film are still very relevant.. and this is a film that could use a great re-make. Still, it's worth seeing the original.. it's is long and could easily be cut by at least half an hour and the ending leaves something to be desired.. that said.. It's Hepburn and Tracy and their wit and banter and chemistry is unrivaled still.
