SHOWCASE: Great Love Transcends Everything – Hepburn and Tracy

You need look no further than the enduring love of two of our film communities greatest lights Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.  They didn’t need to define their position under the laws of the land, they embraced what they were offered and loved with all their beings.

Like Churchill said “how far back you look is how far forward you can grow.”  Any expression of Love is miraculous.  You can feel it.

From her autobiographical look at her life All About Me after recalling the death of Spencer Tracy Katharine Hepburn shares “When people write and ask me about Love. I think to myself. Well, I’ve been lucky. I’ve really know a lot about Love. Thank you Spencer.”

This feeling of life being lived, heart wide open and stretched to the limits of experience is the way of great love. We feel lucky to have been met in this way and grateful for what we gained from the interaction.

Thanks to all of our loves in all of our lives!

with infinite love and gratitude,



Spencer Tracy’s final performance opposite Katharine Hepburn reading William Rose’s beautiful words in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner which won Academy Awards for best original screenplay and best actress cut to the heart of anyone who has ever questioned love’s power to transcend fear.
