Academy Award winners Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn star as two feuding news reporters--sportswriter Sam Craig, and foreign correspondent Tess Harding--who fall in love and marry when they finally meet. But their highly combustible relationship explodes when Tess is voted Woman of the Year. The feud ends and the romance begins when Sam convinces Tess to go to her first baseball game ever. But an intellectual, independent feminist and a regular, sports-loving guy mix like oil and water: She never expected to be hosting his rowdy pals, and he never anticipated harboring a fugitive from the Nazis on their honeymoon. Now, will the love between two very strong-willed people be enough to hold their marriage together in this romantic comedy classic?
