4.5 Stars
Adam's Rib Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: Yale Film Soc.
Rating: NR Year: 1949 Category: Comedy
Director: George Cukor Time: 101 min. Writer: Ruth Gordon & Garson Kanin

Mine: Part of what make Hepburn and Tracy great. Defines witty. Judy Holiday is great as the accused. Could watch it over and over again.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Smart, sophisticated comedy (by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin) about husband and wife lawyers on opposing sides of the same murder case. One of Hollywood's greatest comedies about the battle of the sexes, with peerless Tracy and Hepburn supported by movie newcomers Holliday, Ewell, Hagen, and Wayne. Cole Porter contributed the song "Farewell, Amanda." Remade in Bulgaria in 1956 (in this version the heroine rebels against tradition as a result of her conversion to Marxism-Leninism!). Later a TV series. Also shown in computer-colored version.
