Spencer Tracy 6th Annual Film Festival shown at the Lindo Theatre. Join us for the film Pat and Mike on Sunday, August 20 at 1:00 PM. Admission $6. There will be a film discussion after the movie.
Pat and Mike:
Pat, a college phys-ed instructor, enters into professional competition as a golf and tennis player. Mike, a likeable but unscrupulous sports promoter, first attempts to bribe Pat to lose, but later becomes her manager. Pat performs brilliantly until her insufferable fiancé Collier West shows up; West always manages to make Pat so nervous that she can't win to save her life. At long last, West walks out, having found Pat in a compromising situation with Mike. Though she'd previously kept her distance from Mike, Pat suddenly realizes that she's fallen in love with him and--after a few crooked gamblers are disposed of--Pat and Mike become partners on a permanent basis. Pat & Mike reunited Tracy and Hepburn with their favorite director, George Cukor, and their favorite scenarists, Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin.
