I found this quote from some where...thought I'd share...it isn't all that great about Kate...but at least Spence tells Myrna "I found the woman I want"...even though he was drunk at the time
"We both happened to be in New York when Benny Thau called from Hollywood: 'Myrna, we're waiting to start Tracy's picture and he's there on a bender, holed up at the River House with his male nurse. See what you can do?' I called; Spence asked, 'Where are you?' and I told him. I shouldn't have. He was at the door of my St. Regis suite in no time. Days of drinking had left him belligerent. He made his usual play for me, bringing his fist down with such emphatic frustration at one point that he smashed a glass-topped coffee table. Then he turned defensive. 'You don't have to worry about me anymore,' he said like a sulky child. 'I've found the woman I want.' As he outlined the virtues of Katharine Hepburn, I was relieved, but also a bit disappointed. As selfish as it sounds, I liked having a man like Spence in the background wanting me. It's rather nice when nothing's required in return."
It's a bit all over the place, "As he outlined the virtues of Katharine Hepburn" whatever that means. A quote would have been nice Myrna! But all in all this is ENTIRELY CUTE! I have no idea how I missed this thread before so sorry for the extremely late reply, but thanks just the same for posting this Courtney!
P.S. Is Myrna implying (I have no idea by the way, at all, whatsoever) that she had some sort of fling with Spence as well? "I liked having a man like Spence in the background wanting me".

I'd say "fling" is too strong a word, but Spencer definitely inhabited an appeal, a majesty---that's without a doubt. The ability to woo without even trying. He had that with every woman he encountered, I think. Rare.
I'm convinced that every female under contract to either FOX or METRO had the controversial, but nonetheless irrefutable, 'Mr. Potato Head Complex' that you may find in Freud's recently obtained secret diaries: The 'So Gross That Even I Feel Skeevy About Publishing This' Edition.
Judy: All has changed on the Proboard....Not sure my reply got posted. Anyway, thanks for the notice, Evelien. I'm unable to access it. I can watch the clip of the woman flipping through the Kate books and talking about fashion - one of which is Rebel Chic :-)

CFK: So we all heard about Betty Bacall, I guess? Pretty rotten news, especially following so closely on Robin Williams. What a lousy week. Watched To Have and Have Not as tribute tonight.

Fran: I think the problem with actresses such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford was that they played SEX SYMBOLS and did woman movies. They were sexy in their day and were the main love interests in the movie. When they got older those woman type movies were dead

Fran: Bette Davis made very different movies from Katherine Hepburn Hepburn. Bette was sexy. So was Crawford. They made woman type movies. Hepburn was the masculine feminist. When their looks went, so did their careers. Hepburn was never that type.

Angela: Personally, I like Bette Davis best she was "a woman for all season" she didn't mince words she did the role without having to apologize for creativity she musters to do the work. Also, she could look different without worrying about her appearance.

Angela: Personally, I felt Bette Davis was the "woman for all seasons" since she used all her creativity to make her artwork. As for Katherine she seems to sound the same - her voice didn't change. Granted she was good in Shakespeare which I give credit.

SJS: Bette had a mostly latent tendency to ham, and she admitted it. She really appreciated a director who could get her to tone it down. She lost respect for a director who would let her get away with it. But she took chances that most actresses wouldn't.
