Without Love

This 1944 Hepburn-Tracy pairing is so undistinguished that it's nearly dropped out of the history books. It covers the ground of The More the Merrier, with scientist Spence moving in with widow Kate during the wartime housing shortage in Washington, though the sexual tension never turns into anything meaningful. Amazingly, it represents a collaboration of two of the finest artificers of romantic comedy: Philip Barry (Holiday) wrote the original play, Donald Ogden Stewart (Love Affair) adapted it to the screen. The weak link, plainly, is Harold Bucquet, a dreary director up from MGM's B unit (The Secret of Dr. Kildare). With Lucille Ball, Keenan Wynn, and Gloria Grahame.
