Keeper of the Flame

Keeper of the Flame

Academy Award winners Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy star in this searing drama about the dangerous truths revealed when a newspaperman researches a story on the Keeper of the Flame. Assigned to write the story of national hero, newspaperman Steven O'Malley (Tracy) uncovers facts about his life--and death. Eager to eulogize the man who typified all that is fine about democracy, the reporter finds his investigation blocked by the man's widow, Christine Forrest (Hepburn). But as O'Malley digs, he realizes that the man's death may not have been an accident, his widow may be a murderer--and the man himself may have been a traitor.
