        But while Tracy seemed to have it all, he seemed profoundly unhappy in his private life, suffering from a private turmoil no one, not even Hepburn herself, ever found out. Here are 10 cagey facts.   Tracy & Hepburn were far from perfect. Hepburn's strident nature occasionally comes across as bullying, and Tracy rarely discusses his other life with his children and his wife Louise Treadwell, whom he never divorced. T&H is a totally subjective book; we see the duo through Kanin's eyes.

        Spencer Tracy, rough-hewn American film star who was one of Hollywood’s greatest male leads. His movies included Captains Courageous, Boys Town, Father of the Bride, Inherit the Wind, and Judgment at Nuremberg. He costarred with Katharine Hepburn in Adam’s Rib, Pat and Mike, and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Tracy and Hepburn is the way they were billed in the nine films they made together although Hepburn gets roughly three quarters of the space here in Garson Kanin's memoir which is never really ""intimate"" — affectionate, yes, admiring, and at times personal since the Kanins were their close friends for about thirty years.

        This book is just like Katharine Hepburn herself. Uniquely funny, unconventional, different and beautiful. I found the last three chapters to be especially the one simply titled 'Love', about her unique relationship with Spencer Tracy. Any fan of Hepburn, or of Hollywood's golden era must read this book. It was by: 8.   Actor Spencer Tracy is shown posing with longtime companion and co-star Katharine Hepburn AP/REX/Shutterstock Of course, Bowers wrote his Hollywood tell-all after the marquee names were all dead.

“In her book about her life, Miss Hepburn insists that that woman in the movies was not her at all. ‘I’m not going to hide behind you anymore,’ she says. ‘Who are you anyway. You’re not me.’ Sure she is. The woman in the book is cocky, fearless, smart, capable, and human, on screen and off.”—Anna Quindlen, The New York Times.

"It was always Tracy and Hepburn," Garson Kanin recalls. The billing never changed: the gentleman preceded the lady. Once, when Kanin chided Tracy for his insistence on first billing, he said, "Why not?" his face full of innocence.

"Well, after all," his friend replied, "she's the lady. You're the man. Ladies first?" "This is a movie, chowderhead," said Spence, "not a lifeboat."4/5(2). A memoir celebrating a unique friendship: Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin.
