Karen Kramer.

Directed by Stanley Kramer

Tracy’s swan song, a felicitous final pairing with Katharine Hepburn, forces two liberal, white parents to test their own principles when their daughter presents her fiancé, a young black doctor, and asks for their blessing. Tracy’s character arc, a struggle to fuse public and private morality, is a brilliant summation of his life and career, as is the benediction he gives in the film’s final act.
