Lent: Part 22

Desk Set (1957) – The last of the great old-people romantic comedies. Either Katharine Hepburn was very good at playing drunk, or she was very bad at showing up to work sober.

I can definitely see this show being done on the stage, and would actually quite enjoy it. Specifically, however, I keep picturing it done on the high school stage. While it may make for a fine high school show, it would still be a high school cast trying to deliver the classic Hepburn-Tracy banter.
