Yes, thanks for the link. Some very interesting stuff there! Am particularly enjoying the several different articles that compare Tina Fey to Kate...is it just me, or does every romantic comedy have its stars compared to T&H these days?
Cannot wait to look at all these articles when I get some time on my side from Uni work.. so I'm not going to read all of them.. but CFK, did you say back there somewhere that a newspaper article compared Tina Fey to Katharine Hepburn? Um.. v. interesting. Not sure what to do with that one ...

I love those articles Courtney...poor drafted boyfriend...lmao. And the 1951 thing couldn't be anything other than Spence...unless there's something about, say, Huston she didn't mention!
And Jess, that was just a comment on how every romantic pairing in the movies gets compared to T&H these days. It can be really annoying because most of them aren't in their league, of course. And the ones that are good- and I consider Fey and Carell among them- well, that's apples and oranges. If you look under Kate's "recent articles" on IMDB (a few weeks back) you'll find several about Tina Fey, for no real reason other than the fact that she's in a decent romantic comedy. They link off the article Dreamer posted, I think, which is why I mentioned them.

Oh I see. Yeah it's apples and oranges definately. It's funny when people compare anyone of the 21st Century to those of the golden era. They really can't compare. It's just different times isn't it. I can't really commentate though, I haven't seen a Tina Fey movie although she seems to be very funny in the commercials lol Date Night looked good but it wasn't on at the right time when I went to the movies so I saw The Last Song instead (which was very good incidently. Would have been a better Mary Kate Olsen vehicle though, Miley didn't quite have the life experience the role called for). Drifting..
Yeah, that's from Bacall's book. Thanks for making me cry at work Courtney Well, at least it's after hours and most folks are gone and can't see me..."It mattered not. She knew something..." Did she ever.
You have found some really amazing articles Courtney. Wow - belated thank you.
How to catch up with all of them. Ohh mea culpa Sorry for my absence guys have been busy in my garden - removing trees - replanting - cutting hedges - you know getting things done when possible before the big heat
Was playing a little today - relaxing and stumbled over this very sweet article on LA Times "Kate - At 84, Hepburn Still Has the Look, the Voice and the Attitude"
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.
