GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER (1967) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier, Katharine Hepburn , Katharine Houghton, Cecil Kellaway, Beah Richards
Directed By:  Stanley Kramer
Composed By:  Frank De Vol

“A joy to see, an evening of superb entertainment…It will make you laugh and may even make you cry.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“A most delightfully acted and gracefully entertaining film…Mr. Rose has written a deliciously swift and pithy script, and Mr. Kramer has made it spin brightly in a stylish ambience of social comedy.” – Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

“An outstanding Stanley Kramer production, superior in almost every imaginable way, which examines its subject matter with perception, depth, insight, humor and feeling.” – Variety

Another classic from producing/directing powerhouse Stanley Kramer, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967) is a dramedy lightly treating the heaviest of subjects: race in America. Here, a crusading liberal couple – gorgeously played by that legendary team, Spencer Tracy (in his last film role) and Katharine Hepburn – find their beliefs tested when their daughter (Hepburn’s real-life niece, Katharine Houghton) arrives home with her new fiancé: a handsome, brilliant African American (the handsome, brilliant Sidney Poitier). Nominated for ten Oscars®, the film won two: Best Actress for Hepburn and Best Original Screenplay for William Rose.

This movie's hard to take. It's one of those 60's movies that tries to be hip, and ends up being "dated". I love so many of Stanley Kramers movies, but IMHO, this one falls flat on its face. It wears all of its hard left liberal agendas on its sleeves, and the characters end up sounding like they just came from an ACLU meeting. Liberals are hard to take to begin with, and extremely wealthy liberals, like the Hepburn and Tracy characters in this misfire, are so annoying as to be unwatchable. The only characters I liked in the film were Sidney Potier and the black housemaid...yes, that's right, the rich liberals have a black housemaid! The girl who plays the daughter is so self-righteous and annoyingly perky, that I felt myself yelling to Potiers character to get away from her and just leave the state of California, ASAP!
