    Synopsis


    Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
    Old-line liberals Matt and Christina Drayton (Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn) have raised their daughter Joey (Katharine Houghton) to think for herself and not blindly conform to the conventional. Still, they aren't prepared for the shock when she returns home from a vacation with a new fiancé: African-American doctor John Prentice (Sidney Poitier). While they come to grips with whatever prejudices they might still harbor, the younger folks must also contend with John's parents (Roy Glenn Sr. and Beah Richards), who are dead-set against the union. To complicate matters, the older couple's disapproving maid (Isabel Sanford) and Christina's bigoted business associate (Virginia Christine) put in their two cents' worth. While Joey is determined to go ahead with the wedding no matter what people think, John refuses to consider marriage until he receives the unqualified approval of all concerned. The closing monologue delivered by Spencer Tracy turned out to be the last scene ever played by the veteran film luminary, who died not long after the production. The film was a success in the racially volatile year of 1967 and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and won for Hepburn and screenwriter William Rose. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Drama and Humor

      In seeing this film again after so many years, I had forgotten how much humor is mixed with the drama. Given changes in this society, some elements of this film are dated -- but the basic conundrum of coping with our prejudices (especially when we think we are not prejudiced) is an ever-present reality. To my mind, the film is weakened by the speed of the engagement of this couple. Quite apart from the racial differences, the suddenness in itself would make parents uncomfortable. So while flawed, this film still offers both entertainment and food for thought.

      This is Spencer Tracy's last movie. Tracy, Hepburn, Poitier and a solid cast play this movie with a taboo subject matter at the height of the civil rights movement. Tracy's speech at the end is just priceless on film and timeless in reality.

      What can I say about this classic movie touching on the subject of interracial relationships? It was the precursor of the movie, Loving. Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy and Sidney Pointier gave very fine performances!

      Not too preacy, but you would be suprised how in some parts of the country the attitude sttill holds true. Great movie for 1967. We need more movies that evoke the passion and lessons this movie display.
