Movie: Desk Set

I loved this film. Classic Hepburn-Tracy with the added benefit of 1957 fashion. Desk Set is one of my new favorites!

Katharine Hepburn is always amazing; just a force of nature. And in this film her character has a zeal for working and leading a team - two things that are big in my life right now. When asked about her job, she says: "I love it. If I didn't work here, I'd pay to get in."

Her passion is contagious - this movie makes you feel so lucky for getting to dress up and go to an office each day.

Absolutely agree. I own this one and can watch it over and over again. She and Spencer Tracy made many great movies together. This is one of my favourites :)

Check it out -- it was written by Nora, Delia & Amy Ephron's parents!
