Movie Fact #731 – April 24th, 2015:

The 1967 “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” was an important film for actor Spencer Tracy, who played the lead character Matt Drayton, and his long-time collaboration with actress Katharine Hepburn, who played his wife Christina Drayton. It is notable for being the ninth and final on-screen pairing of Tracy and Hepburn, with filming ending just 17 days before Tracy’s death. Hepburn said the memories of Tracy were too painful and she never saw the completed film because of it. For Hepburn, the film was an eternal, unopened love letter to her good friend Tracy. We all opened the letter for her as fans. She probably knew, deep down, the memories were the letter…and Tracy received it.
