Keeper of the Flame review
Keeper of the Flame is the second film starring the duo of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn on the screen. The first movie starring them both was woman of the year which was one amazing comedy classic. I would say many overlook keeper of the flame. Keeper of the Flame is a proto-film noir mixed gothic melodramas that foreshadowed the political paranoia genre to come on screens in years to come. Spencer Tracy’s reporter character gathers with other members of the press in a small rural inn, there to report on a vaguely described “American hero’s” funeral that has many dark seeds in this classic tale unfolds on the screen.
Kate Hepburn and Spencer Tracy make this thriller with their wonderful acting together on the screen. . The wonderful acting of Spencer Tracy and Kate Hepburn really makes this movie stand out among their movies. The supporting cast all give out wonderful performances.
This is the quintessential Spencer Tracy role for the screen. This movie is one of the best Spencer Tracy roles he ever did for the screen. George Cukor directs this classic that mixes noir elements with proto elements of political paranoia to craft a true masterpiece that you should see today.
