10:00 p.m. Eastern-- "Desk Set" Tracy, Hepburn, Joan Blondell, Gig Young
Aired over and over, but it's a classic of good writing and deft comedy. Love Joan Blondell, temperamental "Emmy", Hepburn's apartment, and Tracy-- at his wry, subtle best in this!

Wow, @bikerbabe, what a fabulous job of recounting all those great, great elements of the film! And communicating your informed appreciation of the excellence it represents. Yes!

I have always loved this movie. Acting, sets, mood, portrayal of 1950’s corporate world, even the opening and closing credits.
Of course, Tracy and Hepburn, Gig Young; Dina Merrill is gorgeous and Sue Randall is so cute (she’ll always be Miss Landers from Leave It to Beaver)
And I love Joan Blondell in this movie and others. (One of my favourites is “Cry Havoc”). She had quite a career.
And the characters of Smithers, Miss Warriner and the old lady who was from their original corporate logo all add so much fun.
BTW, I memorized “Curfew Must Not Ring Tonight” in elementary school - I didn’t remember it being as long as “Bunny” says - it is not 80 stanzas. Only 10 - 6 lines each!

One of the best of the Tracy Hepbun movies which I have seen and enjoyed so many times. As other posters have pointed out, so many funny moments throughout the movie. I love the NY atmosphere and Hepburn's apartment is absolutely delightful. When I first saw Desk Set so long ago, I fell in love with that apartment. Desk Set is among my favorite Christmas movies along with Miracle on 34th St., Christmas Carol, White Christmas, Christmas in Conn. and many others.
In every Tracy and Hepburn movie I appreciate and feel the chemistry between them. I know they had it off screen and it always came through for me in their films.
