It was one of the great romances of our time. They were both Hollywood giants in their own right, yet it was the nine hit films Katharine Hepburn made with Spencer Tracy that, in the eyes of the American public, defined them as Hollywood's most celebrated romantic team. On-screen, the headstrong Tracy had met his match in Kate Hepburn and she put him in his place. Offscreen, despite the fact that he never divorced his wife, Kate remained utterly devoted to the mercurial, sometimes violent Spencer as he battled alcohol. Now, 30 years after Spencer's death, and as Kate celebrates her 90th birthday, author Christopher Andersen, who has interviewed Hepburn many times during the last 20 years, reveals fascinating new insights from important sources, and offers the full, poignant story of their life together. An Affair to Remember paints the complete portrait of the unique relationship between these two American icons.
