Katharine Hepburn never saw Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,  could never bear to, Katharine Houghton saw it only after she was asked  to accept the David di Donatello Award for Best Foreign Actor on  Tracy’s behalf in August 1968.“That last speech of Tracy’s was a  killer,” she said. “At the award ceremony they showed the film, and  afterward I was supposed to go up and make an acceptance speech. I got  up to the podium and burst into tears. I couldn’t say anything except  ‘Thank you.’ Anna Magnani threw her arms around me and said something  charming like, ‘In Italy we respect tears, not words. You do not have to  speak.’”
