In this excursion into the battle of the sexes, Tracy plays Sam Craig, the down-to-earth sportswriter of the New York Chronicle. As Tess Harding, the paper's bright international columnist, Hepburn makes his life miserable. As soon as they start taking swipes at each other in their columns, there is little peace between them. In the office and in the bedroom the squabbling continues, until their problems are overcome by their deep love for each other

"George Stevens' Woman of the Year, conceived to build on the smashing comeback Katherine Hepburn had made in The Philadelphia Story, marked the beginning of the personal and professional union between Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, who would go on to make eight more films together. This tale of two newspaper reporters, who wed and then discover that their careers aren't so compatible, forges a fresh and realistic vision of what marriage can be. The freewheeling but pinpoint-sharp screenplay by Ring Lardner Jr. and Michael Kanin won an Academy Award, and Hepburn received a nomination for her performance. Woman of the Year is a dazzling, funny and rueful observation of what it takes for men and women to get along--both in the workplace and outside it"--Container
The Philadelphia story( Visual )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this furiously witty comedy of manners, Katharine Hepburn revitalized her career and cemented her status as the era's most iconic leading lady--thanks in great part to her own shrewd orchestrations. While starring in the Philip Barry stage play The Philadelphia Story, Hepburn acquired the screen rights, handpicking her friend George Cukor to direct. The intoxicating screenplay by Donald Ogden Stewart pits the formidable Philadelphia socialite Tracy Lord (Hepburn, at her most luminous) against various romantic foils, chief among them her charismatic ex-husband (Cary Grant) who disrupts her imminent marriage by paying her family estate a visit, accompanied by a tabloid reporter on assignment to cover the wedding of the year (James Stewart, in his only Academy Award-winning performance). A fast-talking screwball comedy as well as a a tale of regret and reconciliation, this convergence of golden-age talent is one of the greatest American films of all time"--Container

"Mata Hari: the name breathes mystery, intrigue and sexual allure. Who better to play the notorious World War I spy than Greta Garbo, the enigmatic, exquisite screen icon called The Swedish Sphinx? Garbo is mesmerizing as the dancer-turned-German secret agent in a wartime Paris seething with secrets and betrayal. The notable supporting cast includes Lionel Barrymore as a Russian general besotted with her, Lewis Stone as an icy master spy, and Ramon Novarro as a handsome aviator who wins the heart Mata Hari did not know she possessed. With the world at war, love was her weapon. And the only men she couldn't seduce were the 12 in the firing squad that ended her tragic and tumultuous life."--Container

"Eddie Rice, a veteran suffering from amnesia, returns to Los Angeles from a San Francisco veterans hospital hoping to learn who he is and discovers that he is a gangster named Eddie Riccardi and has a police record. Although he does not know it, five years earlier, Eddie was acquitted of murder after turning state's evidence for homicide detective Lieutenant Joe Williams. His partner, Vince Alexander, took the 'rap' and spent two years in prison. On a Los Angeles street, a woman recognizes Eddie and reports him to Vince, who sends his thugs to beat up Eddie. Holding an old newspaper clipping announcing the verdict that put him in jail, Vince confronts Eddie about the past and gives him one day to leave town. After Eddie returns to San Francisco to see his doctor, Kemble, he reads the newspaper clipping and discovers that the woman who recognized him was Nina Martin, a nightclub singer who refused to testify against him at the trial. Returning to Los Angeles, Eddie visits Nina and, after explaining to her that he has amnesia, pleads with her to tell him about his past. Nina reveals that she was his wife, but divorced him three years ago and now works for Vince. Nina bitterly shows Eddie a scar on her shoulder where he once burned her in a rage. Meanwhile, Vince murders Kelly, a gangster whom Williams had hoped to use as an informant. Although Vince later orders Nina to keep Eddie in town, she is beginning to fall in love with the reformed gangster and warns him to leave. Instead, Eddie goes to Vince's gambling house, the Golden Horn, to retrieve Nina, who is a hostess there. Williams, meanwhile, learns that Eddie is suffering from amnesia and goes to the Golden Horn to pick him up. There, Williams accuses Vince of Kelly's murder, and is himself shot dead by Vince. Later, Eddie wakes up and finds himself in Williams' car, holding the murder weapon, and flees. As a dragnet goes out for him, Eddie picks up Nina, then steals a gun from a gunshop before hiding out at the apartment of Hazel, one of the women from Vince's nightclub. One of Vince's henchmen, Coke, who is Hazel's boyfriend, enters her apartment and shoots Nina in the shoulder, then is shot dead by Eddie. Eddie rushes Nina to a doctor, who calls the police, but allows Eddie time to escape. Eddie goes to Vince's warehouse hideout to wait for him and meets Petey, Vince's weak-minded assistant, who has turned informer. Eddie tells a taxi driver who he is in order to lure the police to the warehouse. When Vince returns, he and Eddie engage in a gunfight, and as the police approach, Vince shoots Petey. Out of bullets, Eddie starts a fistfight with Vince and is knocked out. Vince then drags Eddie out to face the police, but Williams' partner, Captain Anderson, knows Eddie is innocent. Petey crawls out of the warehouse and shoots Vince, who returns his fire, killing him. Vince then shoots at the police and is gunned down. Later, Eddie visits Nina in the hospital, and she tells him that he will always be Eddie Rice and kisses him"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950
