Pat and Mike
George Cukor, 1952
USA | Format: 35mm | 95 minutes

Unfortunately, Peter Bogdanovich can no longer attend the December 14 screening. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Cukor re-united with Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn for this delightfully mellow portrait of a determined athlete who escapes the clutches of her controlling boyfriend, only to get dangerously close to her gruff promoter. Encounters follow with a parade of real-life athletes and a gaggle of easygoing, decidedly non-threatening gangsters, as one of Hollywood’s most relaxed, organic love stories slowly blossoms into view. “The whole thing has a degage air,” Cukor later said. “It’s not played from point to point, but let the chips fall where they may.”
