Charliesgirl7681, sooo didn't see your last post lol (just incase I haven't written enough replies to myself, here goes another one)
Cary and Kate were absolute magic together. No doubt! And don't worry, we don't hate but I've got to say it's a rarity to find a Kate fan who isn't a Kate/Spence loverrr! I'm glad you liked Desk Set though! Have you seen all of their films? I haven't.. there's a bunch I haven't seen - stupid industry not releasing everything on DVD for us to enjoy! One day..

Lol I haven't seen all of them yet. I have to see Sea of Grass and GWCTD THEN I will have seen all of theirs. I'm putting off GWCTD because I know I will be depressed after.
I ended up rewatching Desk Set the night before Chirstmas and I LOVE that movie. It is so damn cute! The scene on the roof is just too cute and a drunk Kate was adorable. Now I want to go rewatch it again.
Totally understandable about GWCTD. You'll have to make sure to write a blurb about it when you've seen it!
I also haven't seen Sea of Grass. I downloaded it one day (I ooonly download things that cannot be purchased on DVD, calm down peeps) and serves me right because it downloaded in another language lol so I just wiped it from my computer, silly to keep such a big file of something I cannot understand without subtitles to help lol although I watched some of it, the costumes were lovely.
Yeah Desk Set is awesome. Total cuteness! I think I might watch it on the weekend. I also love the roof scene - adorable! I like the end too where he pulls the hairpin out of her hair. There's something really cute about that lol
This was my first Hepburn/Tracy film and it got me hooked! I like how in every movie you can tell they were in a different part of their relationship...this one was really fun but there was also a deep, deep, deep familiarity and syncness (did i just make up a word?) that I really felt.
Picked up the Tracy & Hepburn Definitive Collection set recently, and this was the first one I watched. (To date, I'd only seen Guess Who's Coming To Dinner and that was a long time ago.) Very delightful comedy. Very nice to see Joan Blondell still making films after the pre-code era, and Kate and Spence were both quite delightful.
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.
