"Make the Office a Wonderful Place to Love In!"

-- Synopsis:
    One of the later Spencer Tracy / Katharine Hepburn bickering and flirting match ups. The film pits " computer engineer" Richard Sumner (Tracy) against TV-network research whiz Bunny Watson (Hepburn) over the company trying to "computerize" the office by adding a new-fangled computer in her department, threatening her and her colleagues' livelihoods. Hepburn becomes Techno phobic and fears for her job but the computer goes haywire and all takes an abrupt turn. This is a great movie: It has a plot, it has

humor, romance, intelligence , wit and Swing dancing!.

* Features:

    Vintage Old-skool West Coast Swing dancers Lou Southern and Freda Angela Wyckoff dance in this film. Some dancing in the Christmas office party with Spencer Tracy playing the " bongo drums".
