A great find Isis! Is that "our" Judy & Sherry adding their comments? If so, how come you 2 didn't tell us about this wonderful collection before Wish I could afford a copy.......
By the way, does anyone have any news about how the Margaret Herrick Library Kate collection is coming on? Is it completed yet and can anyone have access or is it researchers only?
Sherry and I are always running into this problem: When you've been collecting Kate memorabilia since you were a kid - which is the case in BOTH our cases - it's difficult to remember what you've mentioned and what you haven't. We always find ourselves saying, "did I ever tell you I had such and such...?"

Hmm... I've been contemplating buying this book since the first time I saw it for auction on ebay. Now that I know a little more about it, I'm totally going to ask for it as a graduation gift!!! Exciting!!!!
That link is no longer working. Could someone please give me a little more info about the book?
The book consists of color images of as many of Kate's paintings as are known. Most will be familiar from the Sotheby's catalog and there is commentary on each page as to what the particular painting sold for. But many are from other places and the point is that they are all gathered here in one book. Most are authentically hers and there is an addendum with a grouping that were hawked on Ebay sometime last year that could or could not be hers. But the majority are and it's just nice to have them all in one place.
I'm betting there are MANY that are not here, owned by friends or relatives. But what has been published before - or what was at the Sotheby's auction (including the one purchased by yours truly) - are all here.
This is the item number on eBay. Perhaps you can to get to it easier this way: 7623706072
Maybe I will try, my grandpa offered me last year for my graduate Dior sunglasses (about 200 euros), so perhaps a book of 100 dollars could be possible. ;D ... poor parents I have graduatings almost evry year ! ;D
"I never realized until lately that women were supposed to be the inferior sex. " Katharine Hepburn
Could all this graduating be the reason the board's been relatively quiet of late? Good luck to you all, I hope each and every one of you excels in your chosen field. Don't envy you though - it's ages since I had to sit an exam. One of the privileges of being an oldie
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.
