Love in the Library

We just added The Desk Set to our DVD collection! It's not only one of my all time favorite romantic comedies, it's also probably the first "information science" movie. Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy star in the film, which also features Gig Young and Joan Blondell. Hepburn plays Bunny Watson, head of the research department at a major TV network, and Tracy plays the computer expert Richard Sumner, who has been hired to integrate computers into the department. Bunny's wildly efficient and incredibly stylish staff believe the network wants to replace them with machines, and comedic mayhem ensues. This is a smart, funny movie with a great cast, well worth picking up and settling in with now that the days are getting shorter.
