Ain't it just! It's one of those movies I can watch over and over because it's so light and fun.
Kate had great on screen chemistry with Joan Blondell (spelling?). They looked as though they were friends for years.
It was good that the other secretaries weren't big movie stars because I think that would have changed the whole tone of the film and drawn more attention to them than they needed. The casting was really spot on.
It looked like a really fun movie to make. Everyone seems really relaxed.
“I think that just being alive is a tremendous opportunity. It’s what you do with it that matters. . . . I have no fear of death. Must be wonderful. Like a long sleep. But let’s face it, it’s how you live that really counts.”
R.I.P Kate! I love you!! I haven't seen anything of her today, just a video on YouTube, because this is a busy period and I have an exam in 2 days so eveything I do is studying. But I'm gonna watch something of her soon, I hope!
I remember the day she died, I was almost 14 and it was the first time I heard of her name! I have to say I never forgot it since then, even before becoming a fan that happened just 3 years ago. Maybe it was destiny, i don't know , everytime I thought "Oh, Katharine Hepburn, she was that great actress everyone talked about that day, I guess she must have been really a good person, they say very nice things about her!" I never never forget that hot summer Sunday when after lunch, the news announced her death. It's strange that I remember it so good!

7 years ago, at around this time, I was upchucking in a field of Queen Anne's Lace. It's almost poetic if you think about it. I'm only sorry I can't impart a more sanitary image. But, eh, that's what happens when you're a child and your hero up and dies on you.
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.
