Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn shine in this pertinent classic film about marriage, politics, and the pursuit of the American Dream. When idealistic businessman Grant Matthews (Tracy) is chosen to run for the Presidency, he is caught between the compromising ambition of a ruthless, string-pulling newspaper owner and the integrity of his devoted wife (Hepburn). Masterly directed by Frank Capra, it also features Angela Lansbury, Van Johnson, and Adolphe Menjou.

The February film will be “Gone Baby Gone.” It will show on Monday, Feb. 14.
