Yesterday, I went to the shopping center and met "La llama eterna" (Keeper of the flame) which go out past mouth in Spain.
It´s very curiosity because in the last mouth, some kate´s movies went out for sale for first time in DVD. For example, "Sueños de juventud" (Alice Adams), "Hacia las alturas" (Christopher Strong) y "El estado de la unión" (The state of union).
Until 2009, there wasn´t "La fiera de mi miña" (Bringing up baby) in DVD...
I´m luck and Kate is timeless!

My goodness, $60 for the entire set? DVD's are getting so cheap now. Not that I'm complaining. When you're able to get the 10-Disc Garbo Signature Collection Box Set on Amazon for less than $50, the cheapness of DVD's is a very good thing indeed.
I'll pick this one up eventually. The fact that they're not only willing to license films from other studios but are able to do it and still keep the price down is pretty amazing, and I want more Kate in my collection, obviously.
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.
