Författare: Eva Montanari.

Gli occhi della Signora Olga non vedono più, ma le sue orecchie sanno sentire cose speciali, rumori che a molti passano inosservati, e Nina questo lo sa: per questo ogni sera ‘invita’ un ospite speciale alla tavola della Signora Olga, un uomo di latta, tre moschettieri, una fanciulla dai capelli turchini, per raccontarle avventure incredibili che le permettono di percorrere il mondo intero senza muoversi dalla sua stanza. Nina non ha bisogno di alcun artifizio, le bastano i dettagli memorizzati a scuola da uno dei libri della biblioteca: il potere dell’immaginazione fa tutto il resto. Il testo e le illustrazioni di Eva Montanari riescono a trasmettere la relazione particolare tra la vecchia signora e questa bambina speciale, attraverso uno stile originale fatto di prospettive audaci e una tecnica pittorica molto personale, unione perfetta di gessetti, pastelli, acrilici e olio. Le favole nutrono la mente e il corpo, e privarsene sarebbe un vero peccato. Età di lettura: da 6 anni.

Christina, commossa dalla sincerità dell’unione, aderisce all’entusiasmo della figlia, ma Matt, troppo preoccupato per le difficoltà cui la coppia andrebbe incontro, non è propenso a dare la propria approvazione. In un primo momento, i genitori dei rispettivi figli si ritrovano a chiacchierare impacciati, ma poi la situazione prende una piega più decisa: le madri si ritrovano d’accordo nell’accettare un amore così sincero, i padri non vogliono a nessun costo accettare le condizioni, mentre John si ribella al padre rivelandogli il suo amore che va ben oltre il colore della pelle.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is a 1967 American comedy-drama film produced and directed by Stanley Kramer, and written by William Rose. The film is notable for being the ninth and final on-screen pairing of Tracy and Hepburn, with filming ending just 17 days before Tracy’s death. Hepburn never saw the completed film, saying the memories of Tracy were too painful. The film was released in December 1967, six months after his death. Twenty-three year old Joanna Drayton’s unannounced early return from her Hawaiian vacation causes a stir when she brings her new fiancé to her upper-class family home in San Francisco.

10 days prior, whose first wife and young son were killed in a train accident eight years earlier. Although they try to hide it, Joanna’s parents and in particular her father are initially upset that she is planning to marry a Negro man. The Draytons are unsettled by her engagement with John, since they never thought that her choice would be a Negro man, and further unsettled by John’s decision that if Joanna’s parents do not accept the engagement that day, then he will end it. Adding to the situation is that Joanna, at first intending to join John in a few weeks in Geneva for their planned marriage ceremony, has now decided that she will join him when he leaves after dinner to fly to a meeting in New York City, then onward to Switzerland, where he is an assistant director with the World Health Organization. Matt’s golf buddy, Catholic Monsignor Mike Ryan, stops by after Matt earlier cancelled their golf game. After learning of John, he shares Joanna’s enthusiasm for the pending nuptials and tells her father as much. However, Matt says he cannot give the couple his blessing: he fears that Joanna will be hurt by the prejudice that John and she will surely encounter.

One of Christina’s art gallery employees, Hilary, who had briefly met John and Joanna earlier in the day, stops by the Draytons’ home to express her disapproval over the relationship. Though Christina is still unsure of her own feelings about the matter, she is so offended at Hilary’s racism that she fires her on the spot. Later, when dressing for dinner, Christina shares with Matt her support for Joanna, even if it should mean having to fight her husband. Cocktails at the Drayton home resemble a game of musical chairs, as different permutations of parents and clergy and children gather and share their views about the situation, with the mothers generally expressing more faith in their children than the fathers. Universally, the parents express that more than a few hours are necessary for a proper decision. I think of myself as a man.

According to Kramer, Rose and he intentionally structured the film to debunk ethnic stereotypes. Kramer stated later that the principal actors believed so strongly in the premise that they agreed to act in the project even before seeing the script. Production had been set for January 1967 and ended on May 24, 1967. Spencer Tracy was in poor health, and insurance companies refused to cover him.

The filming schedule was altered to accommodate Tracy’s failing health. All of Tracy’s scenes and shots were filmed between 9:00 am and noon of each day to give him adequate time to rest. Tracy’s failing health was more serious than most people are aware of. According to Poitier: “The illness of Spencer dominated everything. I knew his health was very poor and many of the people who knew what the situation was didn’t believe we’d finish the film, that is, that Tracy would be able to finish the film.
