I think I might be a bit poorly in my pics department. I have many of them though. I have mine organized into folders for each film, some by period, and some just by other categories, and one miscellaneous. But yeah...with some films, I don't have that many pictures. Not that I spend a huge amount of time looking these days. I'm so lazy. I just wait for you all to post them That's not true. I just don't get much of a chance to these days.
On another note, I cannot wait to see Undercurrent when the box set is released. I've already pre-ordered it ;D
UNDERCURRENT! After the Kate standards (BUB, AR, etc) this is my fave Kath movie.
See. THIS is what I love about this group. I'd venture to say that there is not a critic on earth who would agree with you, Shaun. But who gives a @##$. You love the movie. So screw 'em. And I mean that seriously. I LOVE how you will not cave in to convention.
I like it a lot, too. Not my fave; but I think it has a lot going for it and I do not find KH unbelievable in the role. I really think she's good in it....I don't see much chemistry between her and Taylor - or her and Mitchum to be honest. But I still think it works. What I love is the chemistry with Edmund Gwenn and Marjorie Main and I wish there was more of that in the movie.
You and Undercurrent are sorta like me and Dragon Seed. Makeup notwithstanding, I think that the entire cast is stellar and I like the movie more and more on each viewing. But critics would call me insane.

I totally agree. Kate fans really don't give a hoot -- that's like me saying I think Spitfire is the greatest film in the entire world. (I'm going out on a limb here)
Also, Undercurrent I think is in my top 5 movies of her's. I like it better than TAQ. So you know the love for this movie is pretty overwhelming. Irene's costumes look delicious (Kath word WHAT WHAT) on her -- that black flowing dress anyone? -- and hey, Kate playing the victim in peril is a refreshing role. Albeit, out of character, but nonetheless refreshing.
Yeah Judy, nertz to the critics! And yay Amber for giving this movie some sugar. If you take away the plot and characterizations and just leave the visuals, I think this is one of Kate's most beautiful movies to look at. You have the clothes and the great sets (the house in the country and the place where she meets Mitchum)...it's just splendid.

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.
