  • When I first saw this showcase, I'd seen every film Deborah mentioned except the main one, Captains Courageous. Later, I watched it when it aired on Turner Classic Movies channel and had I not read this showcase, I might never have known what a great movie it truly was. Thanks Deborah.

    I'd add five more favorite Tracy and Hepburn films.

    Adam's Rib
    Desk Set
    Woman of the Year
    Without Love
    Pat and Mike

    Plus another film where the cast is so large, everyone is not billed. One really must see It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Tracy has big role in that.
