Desk Set: New York City Inspiration
Desk Set starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy is chock full of books, typing, memos, and even those old computer punch cards. I love the Mondrian inspired opening shot.
The film mainly takes place in the research department of a TV network, where Katharine Hepburn's character is the supervisor. I absolutely love the library look of the place and would be happy to move right in.
Isn't that plant amazing? I want one! I'd probably kill it, though.
Even her character's home is cozy and full of books.
As for the story -- it's great. While watching, I kept being reminded of You've Got Mail. I did a little sleuthing and discovered that that Desk Set's screenplay was written by Henry and Phoebe Ephron, who are the parents of Nora Ephron (director of You've Got Mail). Talented family!
