About the Event
Join us for a fun, vintage film! The mysterious man hanging about at the research department of a big TV network proves to be engineer Richard Sumner, who's been ordered to keep his real purpose secret: computerizing the office. Department head Bunny Watson, who knows everything, needs no computer to unmask Richard. The resulting battle of wits and witty dialogue pits Bunny's fear of losing her job against her dawning attraction to Richard. With Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. Made in 1957, it features a library and very early computers!
