Day 19: Guess Who is Coming to Dinner
This Monday I'm featuring another Sydney Poitier film, Guess Who is Coming to Dinner (1967). This is a wonderful movie about how parents played by Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy react to their daughter's sudden engagement to a black man. The amazing cast also includes Beah Richards , Isabel Sanford and Cecil Kellaway. The performances are all amazing and the knowledge that this was to be Hepburn's and Tracy's last film together (he passed away 2 weeks after filming finished) adds an amazing poinancy to his speech at the end of the movie.
