Meet cute Monday #1

In reference to yesterday’s post, I figured that I’d post the meet cutes that I have been collecting on Mondays. Meet cute Monday sounds better than Meet cute Sunday, after all – the alliteration just feels right.

So, here is the first meet cute Monday: a clip from Woman of the Year from 1942 starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy where both play reporters (he does sports, she does international affairs)…

Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy met each other on this movie. A little tidbit off Wikipedia:

Woman of the Year was the first of nine films Hepburn and Tracy made together. They met for the first time on the shoot. In the 1993 documentary Katharine Hepburn: All About Me, Hepburn herself says she was wearing high heels at the first meeting with Tracy and producer Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and said “I’m afraid I’m a bit tall for you, Mr. Tracy”. Mankiewicz then responded, “Don’t worry, Kate, he’ll cut you down to size.” It was during the filming of Woman of the Year that Hepburn and Tracy became romantically involved – a relationship that lasted until Tracy’s death in 1967.

I like to think that the scene I shared above with Katharine fixing her stockings and Spencer checking out her longs legs might be taken from real life…
