Office Politics – Then, Now and Forever
Although “computer” dated, this film is the most accurate depiction of office politics I have ever seen.

Having worked in several well-supervised office departments, the environment that a truly gifted supervisor (Hepburn’s character) can create is there for all to see. The upper management attitude of keeping workers in the dark as to developmental plans for the company/department and the havoc that philosophy can wreak on morale and gossip was very satisfying and enjoying to watch. (If only management could learn from this lesson.)

Although the stereotypical “office gossip” is almost too delightfully portrayed, the “cliques” and flow of gossip is so true to today’s office environment that someone just entering the work force could view this film as an education.

Of course, Tracy and Hepburn, along with a wonderful supporting cast, make this a very entertaining viewing experience.

A great romantic comedy about love at midlife in the computer age
When I list my favorite film for each year, this is always on my list for 1957. I know I’m supposed to say “Twelve Angry Men” or “Bridge over the River Kwai”, but I just find this film to be better. Hepburn and Tracy star in a very odd romantic comedy in which the leading man is a computer designer and the leading lady is head of the reference department at a major television network. Change the fear of automation that Tracy’s computer brings to the fear of outsourcing and you have something very modern indeed. It is interesting to see the fear of being replaced by something cheaper existed for employees even 60 years ago. It’s also interesting to see that Hepburn’s character as well as her employees are all smart women who, in the 1950’s, cannot hope to aspire to something greater than looking up information for the rest of the company. The romantic comedy is smart and very adult, and it’s a shame more people haven’t seen it. There really is romance after the age of 35, something you’d never know by watching the films of today.

I am going to do what I seldom do when I write reviews – mention the commentary track on the DVD. It is a real disappointment There are two people commenting – film historian John Lee and actress Dina Merrill who costarred in the film. John Lee seems to be reading his remarks and talks more about film history in general than the film specifically. Ms. Merrill talks about her personal experiences with the cast. I was really hoping for some extra or commentary about research departments as they existed in the 1950’s or even something about the early electronic brains, such as the one that Tracy’s character brings into the network research department. You get none of that. There is one other extra about fashions, but that is it. Usually commentary and extras on Fox classic films has been much better than this.

One funny item – Dina Merrell mentioned that she tried to make small talk with Joan Blondell by talking to her about meeting her ex-husband Dick Powell. Joan was not amused, and Dina was puzzled by this response? I’m telling you all of this so that if you see the DVD has commentary that you don’t get TOO excited.
