Product Description

Amazon.ca

Spencer Tracy's last performance was in this well-meaning, handsome film by Stanley Kramer about a pair of white parents (Tracy and Katharine Hepburn) trying to make sense of their daughter's impending marriage to an African American doctor (Sidney Poitier). The film has been knocked over the years for padding conflict and stoking easy liberalism by making Poitier's character in every socioeconomic sense a good catch: But what if Kramer had made this stranger a factory worker? Would the audience still find it as easy to accept a mixed-race relationship? But there's no denying the drawing power of this movie, which gets most of its integrity from the stirring performances of Tracy and Hepburn. When the former (who had been so ill that the production could not get completion insurance) gives a speech toward the end about race, love, and much else, it's impossible not to be affected by the last great moment in a great actor's life and career. --Tom Keogh

Very enjoyable entertainment except for the bubbleheaded daughter's immaturity and head in the sand blindness to reality. Else the cast is superb.The race relations history and the timing of this movie make it a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars takes us back Oct. 27 2013
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Perhaps the younger generations can't appreciate just how far we've come in our society with overcoming racial prejudice. We remember well how disgraceful and shameful the prejudice by the whites toward the black race was just 45 years ago when this movie was made. We probably still have some improvements to make in regards to our attitudes, but thankfully the overt prejudice has greatly been reduced and been replaced by more rational thinking and acting. This movie takes us into the tremendous pain that accompanied some decisions that brave people made in the 60's, decisions that moved our society out of darkness and into sanity in regards to racism. The acting by Sidney Poitier, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy was superb. Not so with Katharine Houghton, who came across as a young woman (Joey) who was flightly, shallow and not too bright. No one can be THAT happy all the time! Even though this movie was made in the 60's and lacks the terrific technology available to movie makers today, it was very well done and I would recommend it to others. There is some profanity. No sex. No violence.

It has been years since I had seen this movie and my husband had never seen it - we watched it the day I receive it and it brought both of us to tears. Truly the best of Tracy and Hepburn. Put it on your must see list - great movie.

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce film. L'histoire est bonne et bien traitée. L'histoire raconte deux personnes de couleurs différentes voulant contracter mariage. Les parents de ceux-ci ont de la difficulté à concevoir qu'une telle union puisse se faire sans qu'il en résulte de grande difficulté pour les mariés. Ce film nous aide à réfléchir aux influences que les préjugés ont sur notre façon de voir les choses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's says movies don't teach you anything?, July 4 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
`Guess Who's Coming to Dinner' is one true cinematic treasure. This film is wonderful because it was made by one of Hollywood's greatest duos, Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. I doubt audiences back then would respond to this if it wasn't for the duo. Although it would not shock me if people then would be thinking Hollywood had finally lost its edge with this one. It was a keen decision to have Kate and Spencer be the leads because in doing so they were assuring not only box-office draw -- people would be returning to watch their favorite unmarried couple bicker, lovingly, yet again -- but a strong statement.

This film was made while Spencer Tracy was dying. Spencer had to put his entire salary in escrow in order for the film company to allow him to do the film. So why did Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy agree to do this film, without immediate payment? Because it's a film about forbidden love, it's a film about loving someone no matter what society thinks, or what the rules are. This is something Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn knew a great deal about. Potier of course turns in a great performance, impeccable as always. Watch for Isabel Sanford, ("The Jefferson's") particularly the one memorable scene where she explains to Potier's character just what "black power" really is. Cecil Kellaway sparkles as Monsignor Ryan, and Beah Richards and Roy Glenn, as the parents to Potier's character, mirror Hepburn and Tracy. Katharine Houghton (Hepburn's niece), as Johanna Drayton, also done well but her inexperience is very apparent due to the heavyweight cast.
What makes this film outstanding is, by the end of the film you realize, Kate and Spencer are not even acting they are relaying their feelings about each other, through the film.
