Keeper of the Flame

keeperoftheflameAn admired American patriot dies in an accident and reporter Steven O’Malley (Spencer Tracy) plans to write a book about himā€¦ but the closer he gets to the manā€™s wife (Katharine Hepburn), the closer he gets to the truth. George Cukorā€™s film starts out like Citizen Kane (1941), takes a wartime look at the meaning of patriotism and ends up telling us that even heroes have dark secrets in their lives. The script has a few silly ingredients, but this is nevertheless a very entertaining film. It was Tracy-Hepburnā€™s second together; she is excellent as the widow who ended up making a painful decision.

1943-U.S. 100 min. B/W. Directed byĀ George Cukor. Novel: I.A.R. Wylie. Cast: Spencer Tracy (Steven Oā€™Malley), Katharine Hepburn (Christine Forrest), Richard Whorf (Clive Kerndon), Margaret Wycherly, Forrest Tucker, Frank Craven.Ā
