Image from the film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Prominent San Francisco couple, Matt and Christina Drayton (Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn) have raised their daughter Joey (Katharine Houghton) to think for herself and to value non-confirming ideals. But liberals Matt and Christina are not prepared when their daughter announces she is engaged to be married to African- American doctor John Prentice (Sidney Poitier). The young couple must also face the refusal of John’s parents (Roy Glenn Sr. and Beah Richards) to give their blessing to their nuptials. The film was a success in the racially volatile year of 1967 and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, and won for Hepburn and screenwriter William Rose. (2K DCP Presentation)
