Tracy & Hepburn: The Signature Collection (R2) in September
Warner Home Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Tracy & Hepburn: The Signature Collection for 19th September 2005. Available exclusively from HMV priced at £34.99 RRP this four-disc box set includes Woman of the Year, Keeper of the Flame, Adam's Rib and Pat and Mike. Featuring standout performances from both stars, these films also boast two of the most high-profile directors of the period in Oscar-winners George Stevens and Hepburn's favourite director George Cukor.
Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn first performed together in Woman Of The Year in 1942, a film which proved to be the spark that ignited a flame that would last for twenty-five years. This classic battle of the sexes marked not just the first of a sequence of nine screen appearances together but also a secretive off-screen relationship that would last until Tracy's death in 1967.
