Rated U by the BBFC


Drama based on the Broadway play by Robert Fryer and Lawrence Carr. Katharine Hepburn plays the head of a TV network research department while Spencer Tracy plays an efficiency expert, hired to modernise Hepburn's operation. When Tracy has a huge computer installed, Hepburn and her co-workers (including Joan Blondell and Sue Randall) fear that they're going to lose their jobs. Their suspicions are confirmed when the computer merrily begins issuing pink termination slips. But something is obviously wrong: the computer not only fires the ladies, but also the head of the network, as well as Tracy, who isn't even on the company payroll.
