Adam's Rib, released in 1949, was one of the on-screen peaks for the matchless pairing of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. George Cukor's instinctively light touch on the director's tiller, the wittiest of Garson Kanin scripts and apparently effortless acting from the stars, merge for 100 minutes of sophisticated comic perfection.

It's tempting to think that, as the sparring husband and wife lawyers, Hepburn and Tracy drew on aspects of their now legendary real-life love affair. Screen chemistry alone can't account for the endless nuances, sidelong looks and timing which make Adam's Rib such a delight. There's also a generosity to their fellow actors that few major stars, then or now, would be confident enough to indulge in. Judy Holliday, playing the wife accused of shooting her philandering husband, had still not secured the lead in the film of her Broadway hit, Born Yesterday. Aware that anything else would have been a travesty, Hepburn as her defence lawyer ensured that Holliday was favoured in their scenes together and she duly got the part.

In all the best ways, Adam's Rib is a quick-fire battle-of-the-sexes comedy, with Hepburn's brittle feminism striking sparks off Tracy's bemused chauvinism. The verdict might be a victory for Hepburn, but the real winner is an underlying love and respect which made this partnership one of the all time greats.

On the DVD:Adam's Rib is presented in standard 4:3 format from a decent print, with a picture quality and mono soundtrack to please anyone who knows the film primarily from TV matinees. The lack of extras, apart from a scene index, is disappointing for a film of this stature. --Piers Ford

Region 2 Spanish import, plays in English without subtitles. The epic battle between the ranchers who are fighting to maintain the open range and the homesteaders who want to fence it in is played out against a backdrop of family melodrama. City girl Lutie Cameron settles down with rich cattle baron Jim Brewton on his Southwestern ranch. Brewton's abiding passion for the what he calls the "sea of grass" blinds him to the suffering of the farmers he is driving off the range. Appalled by her husband's ruthlessness, Lutie takes up with a conscientious lawyer who is trying to help the destitute homesteaders. Brewton banishes his wife from his home, retaining custody of the son born out of Lutie's adultery.. Though Brewton proves a good and loving father to his adopted son, the boy grows up tormented by his own illegitimacy. The resulting tragedy brings Lutie and Brewton face to face again after years apart.

Classic drama starring Ingrid Bergman as a woman who believes she is going mad when she moves back into the home where her aunt was murdered. Paula (Bergman) is initially disturbed when the gaslight in the house starts flickering unexpectedly and she becomes convinced she can hear footsteps in the attic, which has been shut up for years. Then there is the case of the unknown man (Joseph Cotten) she begins seeing everywhere and numerous other strange events that seem to relate back to her aunt and the house. Will Paula be able to get to the bottom of her aunt's murder and the strange goings-on before the mystery drives her insane? >>>>> Directed by George Cukor, "Gaslight" shines as a superb exercise in suspense. Ingrid Bergman won her first Academy Award® as Paula, doubting her sanity while clinging to it. Fellow Oscar® nominee Charles Boyer skilfully plays against type as smoothly evil Gregory. Joseph Cotton, Dame May Whitty and then 18-year-old Angela Lansbury in her movie debut (also capturing an Oscar® nomination) help make vivid a Victorian era realized in a production design that earned a Best Interior Decoration Academy Award ® ...
