In this excursion into the battle of the sexes, Tracy plays Sam Craig, the down-to-earth sportswriter of the New York Chronicle.

"One of the world's most acclaimed comedies, M*A*S*H* focuses on three Korean War Army surgeons, brilliantly brought to life by Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt and Elliott Gould. Though highly skilled and deeply dedicated, they adopt a hilarious, lunatic lifestyle as an antidote to the tragedies of their Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and in the process infuriate Army bureaucrats. Robert Duvall, Gary Burghoff and Sally Kellerman co-star as a sanctimonious major, an otherworldly corporal, and a self-righteous yet lusty nurse"--Container

The Kid thinks he's the best 5-card stud player in town, but The Man has never been beaten. It is therefore inevitable that they go head-on, and what a game it will be: a non-stop, stud poker duel-to-the-death to decide who will be the reigning king of the New Orleans gambling world
The ecstasy of Owen Muir : a novel by Ring Lardner( Book )

34 editions published between 1954 and 2007 in English and German and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic novel is the story of what happens when an idealistic, fiercely honest young man tries to reconcile Roman Catholic dogma with the realities of America of the 1940s. In this brilliantly comic and pungent tale, Lardner dissects the thought control of the McCarthy era, business ethics, racial intolerance, repressive sexual attitudes, the Manhattan nightclub set, "enlightened" penology, vigilantism, and other social phenomena. The ecstasy which Owen Muir seeks is of both the earthly and the spiritual kind, and his wonderfully funny fate lies in the fact that he cannot have his flesh and eat it, too

She adjusts a stocking on one slim, elegant leg. He wanders in, admiring the view. She glances up ... and it's magic. It stayed magic for Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn for 25 years, from that first movie meeting in Woman of the Year through eight more classic films. Cinema fans who have long celebrated the remarkable couple's on-and-off screen partnership have more to celebrate with Tracy & Hepburn: The Definitive Collection, the only place to find all the films they made together, plus a glowing documentary about Tracy hosted by Hepburn. From witty, sophisticated comedies (Woman of the Year, Without Love, Adam's Rib, Pat and Mike, Desk Set) to trenchant dramas (Keeper of the Flame, The Sea of Grass, State of the Union) to their final film rich with laughs and tears (Guess Who's Coming to Dinner), this unique collection captures every moment of the incomparable Tracy-Hepburn screen magic

In the late 1940's, while the Soviet Union and the U.S. eyed each other over the Iron Curtain, conservative Americans at all levels of society worried about communist infiltration--especially in the movie industry, since that medium plays a huge role in shaping public perceptions and attitudes. This program reveals a time of McCarthyism and career-ending blacklists, a time when freedom of speech itself became a casualty in the desperate fight to protect democracy from "The red menace."
