    A fun read

    If you are a fan of Spencer Tracy & Katharine Hepburn, this book is a must -- it's so well-written, breezy, funny and offers a special vantage point on this famous screen couple. Even non-fans would enjoy the hilarious stories and the deft portraints the author creates.

    Inside the Magic

    I read this book when it was first published in 1971 and thoroughly enjoyed it because at that time it was the first glimpse into the life of Hepburn and Tracy. As a fan of Katharine Hepburn's for 44 years (since age 12)I have seen all of the movies and read all of the books and was fortunate enough to see her perform on stage in the last three plays that she did. Since her death in June, I have re-read a number of the books about her including this one. Regardless of what has been published since this book first appeared (excluding the books Miss Hepburn herself wrote), I find this to be one of the most interesting as Garson Kanin wrote this from his personal experience with the couple so it is not filled with surmise or guess work, just facts. It captures Tracy and Hepburn at the pinnacle of their relationship and at a high moment in both of their careers. Theirs was an amazing story of an ultra-famous couple attempting to live a quiet, discreet life in the media capital of the world. Because Garson Kanin knew both Tracy and Hepburn before they found one another and because he and his wife Ruth Gordon were intimate friends of the couple and co-authors on some of their most famous films, Kanin was in a unique position to view and understand these individuals and this couple. The book is a love letter from him to them. Miss Hepburn did not speak to him for many years for writing this book as she felt that it was a betrayal of the friendship. However, you cannot read this book and the stories in it about how the various films were written, what a visit to a restaurant was like, and just generally what it was like to be friends with these two megastars and not feel the love and admiration that he felt for Hepburn and Tracy. If you are a fan of either Tracy or Hepburn, you will enjoy this very readable book. This is no attempt to embarrass or betray rather it is just a collection of wonderful memories of a long and loving friendship between two very talented couples.
