It was one of the greatest romances of our time. They were both Hollywood giants in their own right, yet it was the nine hit films Katherine Hepburn made with Spencer Tracy that, in the eyes of the American public, defined them as Hollywood's most celebrated romantic team. On-screen, the headstrong Tracy had met his match and she put him in his place. Off-screen, despite the fact that he never divorced his wife, Kate remained utterly devoted to the mercurial, sometimes violent Spencer as he battled his dependence on alcohol.
Christopher Andersen reveals fascinating insights from important sources, and offers the full, poignant story of their life together. An Affair to Remember paints the complete, inspiring, often funny, sometime heartbreaking, always captivating portrait of the unique relationship between these two American icons.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The love story of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. Tracy was a binge drinker who disappeared for days at a time, and Hepburn did not have a spotless past before settling down with the married Tracy. Both were quite something.
Both their lives were as interesting before they met as it was after. This book is hard to put down.
