My favorite couple onscreen

Hepburn and Spencer Tracy were at their most seductive when their verbal fencing was sharpest: it was hard to say whether they delighted more in the battle or in each other.
Most of their films together stress the sparks that can fly when a couple try to find an equable balance of power. The sexy sparring over power and control is almost always resolved in an agreement to share and share alike. They appeared in a total of nine movies together, including "Adam's Rib" (1949), "Pat and Mike" (1952), and "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" (1967).
