The legendary screen duo of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn bring their keen comic timing and elegant, palpable chemistry to Walter Lang's DESK SET. Hepburn is cast as Bunny Watson, an exceedingly feminine reference librarian in a longtime lukewarm relationship with TV executive Mike Cutler (Gig Young). Tracy plays Richard Sumner, a hardheaded computer whiz who has designed a system named Miss Emmy to replace Bunny and the rest of her staff. Bunny and Richard clash at first, but their fiery encounters soon begin to take on an unmistakably romantic glow. Lang's film features an excellent script by Henry and Phoebe Ephron, adapted from the play by William Marchant. The sharp, hilarious dialogue is delivered with flair by Tracy and Hepburn, who had played opposite each other seven times before filming began. Fine work from supporting actors Young and Joan Blondell, as well as some unintentionally amusing 1950s conceptions of a computerized world, round out DESK SET's overflowing collection of buoyant charms.

    I have enjoyed watching this classic Tracy-Hepburn movie for years! It's one that can be watched over & over! Sooo funny, appealing to adults in particular. Really, a timeless Classic. This particular purchase is for a friend's 7th Wedding Anniversary, which Hallmark denotes as "Desk Sets" being the appropriate gift. Also, thank you for your prompt service & shipping!

    Hepburn and Tracey work through themes that are still bitingly relevant today. Sexism and technology versus humanity.
