See? I was elaborating on the whole "surfing" analogy---you and I were sharing a wave and then I swam off in search of another wave because we didn't feel the same towards SBT. I mentioned Bobby because of the Surfer Doll song and the fact that he creeps me out. It's a hard job, explaining one's analogies. Hee.
But now I'm back to share the wave with you! Let's buy a fancy surfboard!
I guess I am sensitive - as most of us are - to that subject since a certain book was published
I'm so new to being a Kate fan that I have no idea about this or what it means. I can only presume someone published a biography that told a whole lot of lies? That happened to Barbra Streisand within the past couple of years (another favourite of mine). It's pathetic.
Perhaps someone could privately message me and tell me the book and author so I don't buy the book therefore giving them any royalties undeserved.
You guys are awesome
No need for a PM! The latest addition to the tabloidy, novel-sized biographies on Kate is "Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepbun". It would serve more use as the lining for a bird cage. That is all. Stay clear of Leaming, Edwards and [although it contains delicious guilty-pleasure visuals for fangirls] Andersen.
I'm admitedly one of those fans who is a sucker for good / different pictures!! But I will steer clear of those authors. I'll have to carry a little card with me at all times with the names printed on - in case I see any of those books at the local second hand bookstore and wonder "to have or have not"..
I can just see Spence if he were here screaming at that author "'Kate', you don't even KNOW her!" (Says me, calling Mr Tracy 'Spence' haha)
Amber, thanks again for the advice. The Barbara Leaming book is on Australian eBay at the moment. I would have considered bidding but I definately won't now! Does it even have any great pictures? It's $14.00 which isn't really expensive but I'd prefer not to buy if it's inaccurate and doesn't even have worthy Kate pics!!

Unless you enjoy reading about venereal disease and abortions and a man-turned-woman who had secks with his/her father and then got pregnant (I made that last part up, but it just might as well be included with every other taboo mentioned in the book), I would spend that 14 dolla on Knowing Hepburn and Other Curious Experiences by James Prideaux. Have at it, friend.
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.
