So I'm sitting here watching "State of the Union"

Great Tracy/Hepburn movie from 1948. If you've never seen it, you need to. Anyhow, damn near broke down when this scene came on.

5. I'm surprised Adolphe Manjou even agreed to be in a movie with this scene.

He was an arch conservative, and had cooperated with the House Committee on Un-American Activities the year before.

6. Had this recorded off TCM.

They always do an intro about the making of the movie, the actors, etc. I guess there was real tension between Hepburn and Manjou because of his cooperation with HUAC, and she had always been a proud liberal. But because their scenes together tended to be adversarial, it worked in the movie. But yeah, there was NO socializing at all between them.
