Hi! I'm new and am just getting started with Katharine. It took me a long time to stumble upon this board and I am so happy I did. I was just wondering what films everyone has seen. I'm sure some are much farther along than others. Has anyone seen everything she has ever done?

Welcome! Glad you joined. This board is wonderful. Happy posting!
I've seen all but the following (too lazy to rate):
Little Minister Madwoman of Chaillot Trojan Women (those three are accessible free online, I'm just too lazy to look them up) Glass Menagerie Love Among the Ruins (which I can't find anywhere) Laura Lansing Slept Here The Man Upstairs This Can't Be Love One Christmas (I actually own it, just haven't seen it...this Christmas is a good time I guess)
I'm too lazy to type out all of my ratings right now but I will list a few that come to mind: 5s: -The Philadelphia Story (I'm going to see this on the big screen at a theater in 2 weeks!) -Undercurrent -The African Queen -Woman of the Year -Adam's Rib 4s: -Stage Door -Bringing Up Baby -Christopher Strong -Without Love -Summertime Anything else would probably be a 3, 2, or 1...

Welcome aboard, new person! I've seen 'em all, and it would be tedious on me and you if I listed my favorites top to bottom, but my #1 is AR. Summertime almost kicked it off its pedestal for quite some time, but there ain't no denying that it will ALWAYS top my list.
You've got quite the list, so far. Have fun with the rest of them!
Wu--wait a second. YOU GAVE THE IRON PETTICOAT A 4 OUT OF 5 STARS? LET'S BE PALS!
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.

HollywoodHepcat: Oh my God. Betty. My heart's in my throat.

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.
