Pat and MikeDVR This Thursday, December 8th, 2011
George Cukor directed Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in one of their better romantic comedies, and one of the gayest, in hindsight. Hepburn and Tracy perfected the I-hate-you, I-love-you, We’re-Really-Smart-and-Funny genre, and their chemistry was not just great acting, since they were also in love and having an illicit affair. In Pat and Mike, the always-a-little-dykey Hepburn plays a star golfer (a golfer!), Tracy is her manager, and with Cukor’s slyly gay sensibility, the film has a queer feel to it. Also, it’s really funny.
