Hahaha, I wish I had read this thread before turning on TCM----thought my DVD player was on the fritz and I randomly left SOTU in the drive. Since when did Turner acquire the rights to program this film? This is the first time I've caught ear of it being on television, and if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I probably wouldn't have believed it.
Paint me befuddled.
And as far as Kate re: her eyes: LIGHTING IS A BITCH SOMETIMES. In some scenes she's very washed out and perhaps there was too much white on the set, because candids from this particular movie-making experience show her to be as shiny-faced and crazy-haired as any other occasion. Or maybe she stayed up too late learning her lines onaccounta she agreed to do the thing 48 hours before go.
In other words, I don't know, I wasn't there, bro.
Okay so as for the intial question: did anyone else notice Kate looked tired in the film? I don't think I did. I just thought she looked different. Like it does absolutely not feel like a Kate film to me. I know it wasn't made for her and such but I didn't feel like she was into it. I dont know. Maybe it's just me lol perhaps it is tiredness I'm mistaking for lack of enthusiasm. I don't know - I try to love it - I can't - just tell me to shut up lol..
I will end this reply with something positive - Kate looks BEAUTIFUL in this film. The wardrobe is really interesting. I don't know a huge deal about who did it but I wonder if they did any of her other films. My automatic guess is no for some reason. It has a different look to her other films (the dresses particularly).
Amber you make me laugh - as per usual lmao I heart your describing words for Kate. Loves it.

I think it was partially deliberate- she is just ST's wife and her character is more of a homebody than the ones before- and she has to look Hollywood good, First Lady-worthy, etc- but also be kind of the "wife" next to Angela Lansbury- so that Lansbury can seem more alluring and glamorous- and we could possibly see why ST would stray from someone as excellent as Kate- just a thought?
That sentence was completely incoherent, but you know what I mean...
I didn't want to read too much about this film before I see it, so I was pleasantly surprised by it, I really enjoyed it!
Just a couple of superficial observations for a start: Kate looked absolutely beautiful, I'd say in my opinion she looked the most beautiful in SOTU and Adam's rib, i.e. in her early forties, even more beautiful than when she was younger. Wow, what a woman ;D
And how cute was it when Spence pronounced the word problem as "prob-lemm" at about 12:00mins, awww <3
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.
