Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

A film by Stanley Kramer
Starring Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, and Katharine Houghton

A groundbreaking film challenging race relations in Civil Rights-era America (especially given that anti-miscegenation laws were still on the books in 17 states at the time of release). Joanna Drayton (Katharine Houghton) is a young white woman who has had a whirlwind romance with Dr. John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), a young, idealistic black physician she met in Hawaii. When Joanna brings her new fiance to dinner to meet her liberal upper-class parents (Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn), she is shocked to find such opposition to her marriage.
