This is on the agenda for a rare family movie session with my brother’s brood (3 of the 4 nephews are in town). I’d been holding it until at least 2 were available, and meanwhile my sister in law asked about watching it (amazingly has never seen it), so that prompted the showing. It’s too bad Sony hasn’t reissued this, since the Twilight Time (which we will watch) as well as the digibook (of which perchance I found a leftover copy at Barnes & Noble a couple of years ago) are both out of print. It’s a film of its time, and maybe a little didactic dramatically. But the marvelous cast, and the final Tracy and Hepburn collaboration, Poitier’s quiet dignity, plus Tracy’s heartrending final summation, all make for a fine entertainment with a still timely message.Twilight Time released Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, and I thought I heard that after their contract expired Columbia was going to release it's own blu-ray, but it seems they have not. One of my favorite films.
