Guess Who's Coming To Dinner

Spencer Tracy speech


  .....there is nothing,

absoIuteIy nothing...that your son feeIs for my daughter...
that I didn't feeI for Christina.
Old? Yes.
Burnt out? Certainly.
But l can tell you the memories are stllI there--
cIear, intact, indestructibIe.
And they'll be there if l Live to be... ....
Where John made his mistake, I think...
was attaching so much importance to what her mother

and I might think.
Because in the final anaIysis, it doesn't matter a damn what we think.
The onIy thing that matters is what they feeI...and how much

they feeI...for each other.
And if it's haIf...of what we feIt...
that's everything.

  But you do know--I'm sure you know--what you're up against.
There'LL be a hundred mlllion peopIe right here in this country... who'LL be shocked and offended... and appalled at the two of you. And the two of you will just have to ride that out. Maybe every day for the rest of your Lives. You can try to ignore those peopIe... or you can feeI sorry for them and for their prejudices... and their bigotry and their blind hatreds and stupid fears. But where necessary...you'LL just have to cling tight to each other...and say screw aLL those peopIe! Anybody couId make a heLL of a good case against your getting married. The arguments are so obvious that nobody has to make them. But you're two wonderfuI peopIe...who happened to fall in Love...
and happen to have a pigmentation probIem. And l think that now...no matter what kind of a case some bastard

couId make...against your getting married...there wouId be onIy

one thing worse. And that wouId be if...knowing what you two are...
knowing what you two have... and knowing what you two feel... you didn't get married.

The studio did not want him to do the film due to ill heath.  Katherine Hepburn put her salary up because she knew her life long love was the only one who could do the role justice.
