Wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Not only did the Alex Theatre screen "Desk Set", but they began with newsreel footage, as well as a Disney cartoon, all circa 1957 (when "Desk Set" was made)...all really lent itself to an "old Hollywood"...continued

This was a lot of fun and I had a great time. There were no problems picking up the tickets and it was easy finding the event.

More Information



This is the first film that Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn did in color and the eighth of the nine films in which they appeared together.

Joan Blondell, Gig Young, and Dina Merrill are the supporting cast for this edge of the computer age office romp that is presented in Cinemascope with color by DeLuxe.

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.
