Im-pressive chum! Do you jot down repeats? So like every time you watch a movie (even if you watched it last week) you write it down? PLEASE update us if you ever count them all, I'd love to know how many movies a film buff watches each year! Oy vey, it's giving me a headache just thinking about it lol if you put it into an excel spreadsheet it'd be interesting to see which actor / actress you've watched most too! Hmm that'd be awesome - and time consuming lol
I used to try and keep a list in excell, but needless to say that didn't last too long-- I'm much too lazy to type in all that info. However, I have been keeping track on IMDb. If you make an account on their site, you can add movies to your list. I think the list is supposed to be about movies you actually own, but oh well. After I watch a movie, I go on IMDb to learn a bit about it, and then I just click the little 'add me to 'my movies'' button thats on each film's page. Makes keeping track a lot easier.
Anyway, back to the thread... Kate is definitely my favorite actress of all time, and has been for some time now. When I first became a fan of classic film some years ago, my favorite actors and actresses would change every week! I would become obsessed with one actor, then watch as many of their films as I could and read as much as I could about them. Then the next week I would find someone else I thought I liked better. It it certainly helped me watch a substantial number of films and learn a lot about the industry. But finally about two years ago I watched The Philadelphia Story and I was hooked on Kate. I haven't had a different favorite actress since!
Other honorable mentions would be Greta Garbo (probably the closest runner up to Kate-- I was quite obsessed with her for a while...), Betty Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, and Ginger Rogers. And maybe Audrey Hepburn. As for actors, I love Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, Bogie, Jimmy Stewart, and Buster Keaton.

I've really only got two favorites lately--ones that I could never imagine going without...if I don't sound like a total creep by saying that... Kate, obviously And Judy Garland
If it weren't for Judy I can honestly say that I never would have found Kate, only because I wouldn't have cared enough to look her up. I would be too busy with other worldly, teenager things to care about AFI's #1 actress of all time. Oh well, life is funny like that. I love Kate and Judy..(hence my sig) and that is the end of the story Though, I can't really make a case for any of these other actresses, ie Bette Davis, Lauren Bacall. I haven't seen any of their stuff yet. Though maybe I will, with the way everybody's talking.
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.
