Synopsis:
Assistant District Attorney, Adam Bonner loves his wife Amanda, but doesn't care much for his opposing counsel in a sensational attempted-murder trial - an opponent who happens to be Amanda. Spencer Tracey and Katharine Hepburn were never more evenly matched than when they brought their sharpened wits and prickly affection to this George Cukor-directed comedy written by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin. Judy Holliday co-stars as the woman whose shooting of her philandering spouse becomes a feminist cause for Amanda. Hepburn generously saw Holliday's' work as a screen test for casting the film of Holliday's stage vehicle Born Yesterday. Hepburn's ploy worked. So does this fine, funny movie.

An unbelievably modern, perfect comedy of manners - Adam's Rib review by BS

Spoiler Alert

Miles and miles ahead of it's time. The tightest, sharpest script. Fantastic performances all round. An unbelievably modern take on female equality that makes a lot of new films look oafish. Outstanding.
