JusWondering… Who Are The Hepburn And Tracy Of Today?


Nobody else is like Spencer and Tracy... or so I've been told.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I. Know. Films.

But only after the release of Die Hard in 1988.  It was around then I started reading Entertainment Weekly (this was my first issue) and began my film studies at Wayne State University (go Tartars, I mean, Warriors!)…

So needless to say (yet I’ll say it anyway), I’ve never seen any of Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy’s films, but I do know that they are a beloved (or at least famous) Acting! pair, the likes of which no longer exist.  Or do they?

I tried scouring the TripleDoubleU for Actors! that were in more than one movie together, and alas, I found nothing definitive.  So I had to scour my own brain, and this compilation was the best I could do.

(NOTE: I didn’t count sequels or comedy duos, but all you’ll see… most were only in two films.)
(ANOTHER NOTE: I know there are more – please add the ones I’m missing in the comments.)
(A FINAL NOTE: I did not count
John and Joan Cusack either, sickos.)
