Do any of you have access to quotes - or better still, the full transcript of the Donahue interview? I remember watching it, but have rarely read anything about it since. I also loved the 1987 RKO TV series in which Katharine had quite a lot to say.

I've been looking for the Cavett interview for years. I have a video of it now, but it's very bad and there are a lot of noise sometimes, so I'd like to know where I can find a transcription of it. Thanks
Anyone know anything about the Clive James interview ie when was it recorded and is there a transcript? Mariluna? - I think you mentioned it in another thread. I know it's showing this week on the biography channel, but as I have no way of watching that, I'd appreciate any other info. any of you might have. Clive is always quite witty & irreverant, so I guess it must have been fun as well as interesting.
Well I've downloaded the Donahue transcript since I last mentioned it. Not sure that I didn't get it from this forum or katethegreat.net? Not a senior moment creeping up on me, I hope?! If anyone's interested, I can try and send it.
I'm so thankful for the Cavett transcript, because my tape is very bad an some parts can't be listened. But there are about twenty five minutes missing in the middle of the interview (When she begin to talk about her mother regrets about her career. Then Cavett began to answer her about Garbo) . Somebody have the whole transcript? It seems a very important part. Well the whole thing is very important but I'd like to have it completely. Thank you

Gosh I would loooooove to see the Donahue interview..have read the transcripts and it's great. peace George
Hate to disappoint you, George, but the Donahue interview will leave a sour taste in your mouth when you see it and it has to do with the manner in which Donahue conducts the interview. I was always a fan of his but he really disappointed me with this one because of the way he acted. He feigned shock and surprise at Kate's living arrangement with Tracy and at one point, he offended Kate with a comment he made about Tracy, and she made it plain to him that he did. Kate was 84 when she did the interview and there is something smarmy in his manner toward her. The best part of the interview is at the end when he asks her to autograph her book for him and she asks him who he is so she can include his name in the inscription. He says to her, "You really don't know who I am?!" and she laughs and says that she doesn't. At that point I had to laugh cause you know that there was NO WAY that Kate Hepburn did an interview with someone whithout knowing who they were and what kind of work they did. So I think she said that to him to get even with him for his rude comment about Tracy. The perfect squelch. :-)
By far, the best interview treat that we are all going to have is the DVD of her interview with Cavett because it is perfection. I saw it in 1973 and it never went out of my brain totally because it is so outstanding. Kate is in perfect form and when she tells Cavett that "Stone cold sober, I find myself absolutely fascinating" -- you are in total agreement. Sherry
As one goes through life, one learns that if you don't paddle your own canoe, you don't move!
And. . does anyone know when TCM is going to air those Cavett interviews they acquired?
As far as I know, TCM is not showing the Kate interview. I'm pretty sure this is so as to not steal the Shout Factory's thunder when they release it on that Hollywood Greats DVD collection, because I think it's pretty much a no brainer that THIS is the most anticipated of the releases. TCM is, however, supposed to be showing the following Cavett stuff in September:
9/7 new interview with Mel Brooks 9/14 Woody Allen 9/21 Robert Mitchum 9/28 Hitchcock
So even though I have watched my video of the Kate interview over and over and over - over the years - we'll all have to wait for the DVD to be released in that Greats set.

Wassup, Wow, very disapointed to read about the shenanigans that took place during the Donahue interview. I had gathered as much from reading the transcripts from the interview..which is why I wanted to see it. To see Kate's reaction. Didn't she say something like.."You sir are no gentleman for asking such a question". I'm sure I'm paraphrasing. You would think an interviwer of Donahue's caliber would realize the opportunity that was before him and not try to sully it with sneaky and disrespectful ambush questions. I agree.. I love the Cavett interview as well. Can't wait to buy the Legends DVD. Oh and thanks for the heads up about the outtakes..that should be fun. Peace George
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.
