(1942) Directed by George Cukor. Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Richard Whorf. (100 min.) DVD. A beloved American war hero dies in a car accident, and a reporter pursues his grieving widow for an expose about his influential life and tragic death. Tracy and Hepburn, in their second film together, were already deeply involved in their private relationship, but the on-screen romance is muted. Evoking Citizen Kane in it's quest for the secret of a mysterious public figure, this film has never been more topical.
