FAVORITE FILMS: Summertime, On Golden Pond, The Lion in Winter, The Philadelphia Story and Desk Set
FAVORITE FILM OF ALL TIME: My favorite Kath film is Summertime, my favorite film in general in Chinatown
FAVORITE PERFORMANCE:Coco soundtrack is fab even though I didn't see it, obviously
COMEDY - Desk Set
DRAMA - Long Day's Journey Into Night
HOW I BECAME A FAN: I don't think I even remember. It was immediately after her death, I've terrible timing, and I think I was just in awe of the clips. I was going through my Bette Davis phase at the time, but watched Woman of the Year and was hooked.
COMMENTS - Are we supposed to talk about The Aviator here? haha. I'm excited for foruming it out, but my space bar is broken so bear with me. OH! PS-I heart Ernesto and Kath
"I find a woman's point of view much grander and finer than a man's."
FAVORITE KATE FILMS: African Queen, Stage Door, Adam's Rib, Bringing Up Baby, Summertime, The Philadelphia Story, Desk Set
ALL TIME FAVE KATE FILM: Woman of the Year
PERFORMANCE: The entire Holiday movie, particularly the New Year scene with Cary Grant in the play room.
COMEDY: Pat and Mike / Desk Set
DRAMA: Woman of the Year / Summertime
HOW I BECAME A FAN:
Last year I purchased The Philadelphia Story because I just happened to be watching High Society and thought, I wonder how different it is without music.
Shortly after, I was shopping in my local Wollworths supermarket and saw "Woman of the Year" and thought the cover looked cute and romantic, so I thought 'what the heck' and purchased it. Well, one taste of Kate and Spence and you're addicted for life! I then bought every Spence/Kate film I could find and YouTube'd anything Spence/Kate I could possibly lay eyes on and continue to be fascinated and love learning new fun facts about Hollywood's secret couple.
Since then I have managed to purchase "Me", "Tracy and Hepburn: An intimate memoir" and "The Making of The African Queen or How..." and can't wait to re-read them all!
Summertime and Desk Set are SO underrated! Awesome movies yet generally seem to get overlooked grr!
I have just started a Katharine Hepburn scrapbook which I'll have to put down soon when I start back at college.
I have made a few Katharine Hepburn / Spencer Tracy video tributes on YouTube and continue to make them as we speak!
P.S. The latest Kate treasure I am on the hunt for is Without Love. I've never seen it and it looks soooo good!

FAVORITE PERFORMANCE: Summertime, The Philadelphia Story, Mary of Scotland, Little Women... oh well, every Kate's performance is GREAT XD COMEDY - The Philadelphia Story! DRAMA - The African Queen HOW I BECAME A FAN: Haha. I'm a newbie! I started loving her just a month ago -more or less- watching Sylvia Scarlett (my very first Katharine's movie). And now I'm so addicted I can't stop talking about her!!! COMMENTS - Katharine was wonderful. Not only a beautiful woman, but the greatest, most talented actress ever. *_*
Hey there! I must say, I adore this forum! I’m so happy I joined it. Kate is the best!
Name: Carolina Country: Portugal Favourite films: Bringing up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, Stage Door, Adam’s rib, The African queen, On Golden Pond… Favourite film of all time: Casablanca. Of Kate’s, Bringing up Baby. Favourite performance Comedy: Bringing up Baby Drama: Too hard to choose How I became a fan: My favourite song of Madonna is Vogue. So, one day, I was carefully listening to the lyrics, and then there was a part where she goes ‘Greta Garbo and Monroe, Dietrich and DiMaggio…’ and so on…and I wondered who those people were. So, I google their names and obviously found out they’re stars from The Golden Age. I immediately was fascinated by them and wanted to watch their films. I became a fan of them all, but as I watched their movies, Kate became my absolute favourite. I was about 13 and I am 17 now. Favourite Kate quote: ‘If you always do what interests you at leats one person is pleased.’ Favourite Kate line from a movie: ‘It would be a terrific innovation if you could get you mind to stretch a little further than the next wisecrack.’ Stage Door Male co-star: Cary Grant Female co-star: Ginger Rogers Kate/Spence movie. Adam’s Rib Book about Kate: ‘Kate Remembered’ Interview with Kate: Dick Cavett. To me, the best talk show host ever. With whom (actor/actress) would you have liked Kate to do a movie with: Bette Davis. Man, that would have been World War III. One performance for which she didn't get the Oscar but should have - which movie/performance would it have been?: The african queen. Or Long day’s journey into night. If you could turn back time and could watch her in ONE stage performance - which one would you pick?: The warrior’s husband. Favourite Kate-scene in any movie?: The dinner scene in BUB with Major Appleagte. All-time favourite photo: Too many! Comments: I feel sorry for those who don’t know who Katharine Hepburn is. They don’t even imagine what they’re missing.

I am so darn happy I found this board. I kept running into boards on Judy and Bette but nothing on K.H. This is well hidden.
Name: Amanda Country: U.S
Favourite Kate films: Bringing up Baby, Holiday, The Philadelphia Story, and Lion in Winter. So far
Favourite film of all time: Fried Green Tomatoes (sorry KH)
Favourite performance of Kate: Lion in Winter
How I became a fan: I've always known of KH but didn't know her. We watched a clip of Lion in Winter in English class in my second year of college (last year). The scene when her and O'Tool are having it out. She is on the bed raving about his father. I got goosebumps. I told myself I had to get some of her films but life got busy. I ramdomly grabbed BUB about 2 months ago because I felt sick and wanted a comedy. It looked good. I was struck by this woman's beauty. I couldn't get over that she was funny. I thought she was so straight laced. I've been hooked ever since.
Favourite Kate quote: Life is hard, after all it kills you.
Favourite Kate line from a movie: Of course he has a knife, he always has a knife, we all have knives, its 1183 and we're barbarians!
Male co-star: Cary Grant
Female co-star: Billie Burke she is considered a co-star right? Maybe not, oh well I like her. I do love Ginger though.
Kate/Spence movie: Desk Set,too cute.
Book about Kate: The Making of the African Queen
With whom (actor/actress) would you have liked Kate to do a movie with: Streep...kidding. Humm I don't know. Becall? A. Hepburn?
One performance for which she didn't get the Oscar but should have - which movie/performance would it have been?: I'll let you know after I watch Alice Adams. EDIT: I saw AA and I must say I was not as impressed as I thought. I would have to say Summertime.
If you could turn back time and could watch her in ONE stage performance - which one would you pick?: The Warrior’s Husband, The Philly Story, or Coco. I can't decide... or maybe in Antony and Cleo? What about The Lake? Could she really have been that bad?
Favourite Kate-scene in any movie?: Holiday...Cary's shoulders, nuff said
All-time favourite photo: Anything that has been colorized from the 40's and earlier
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
Jun 26, 2017 16:56:41 GMT -5
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.
Mar 14, 2019 19:54:07 GMT -5
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.
