Hepburn is terrific. Tracy, not so much, because his character is sketched out rather than written, so he could only do so much with what he was given. Apparently (per iMDb) the original ending, which has been lost, tested poorly, and so the rather regrettable one you see, which has NOT aged well, leaves a bad taste. Also, given the actors' later personal history, the fact that one of their characters' initial bonding episodes is through a drinking contest of sorts, is really quite sad.
