My favourite movie of hers is Bringing Up Baby. It always cracks me up!

Hmm it is hard to pick just one, but I think my 'go to' Kate film would have to be The Philadelphia Story. It was just done so well. The whole cast was perfect and the story was superb. You just can not go wrong with it.

I love Kate. Always have. Currently my favorite movie of hers in Holiday (1938) with Cary Grant.  : )

What is your favorite Kate Hepburn movie?  I think mine is the African Queen, but Bringing Up Baby is right up there as well.  Can't make up my mind - how about you?

This is the trailer for my Spencer Tracy 1-person play, now available on Amazon.com.

i adore Katharine Hepburn. she was such a great actress. we will never see actresses like KH (or any classic actress) ever again because no one cares as much about the craft and care that goes into acting. my favorite KH movie is Bringing Up Baby with Cary Grant. i saw this movie and died laughing i just love her as the airy ditz. Adam's Rib is also one of my favorite KH movies i love all the sexuality/sexual tension between her and Spencer Tracy, it was so racy!! i really love how she didn't give a crap of what anyone thought of her she was just her own person- i think this is the reason why she was so good and why she is a legend she was so different from all the actresses around during her time.

I guess I'll use this space to see if anyone wants to talk over my idea of informally listing "favorite romance scenes" in movies. The reason I thought of this idea, and have been adding to my own personal list for several years, was because on my umpteenth viewing of Woman of the Year, I finally happened to REALLY notice how incredibly well and sexily the scene between the two of them in her apartment was done. Gad! The drapes, the lighting, the chemistry, the dialog - just the whole thing makes what they are feeling, thinking and trying to decide about palpable. I have some other favorites (I'm a sucker for romance), but I think that this group is the right place to acknowledge my list to the world since Katharine H. inspired me to sit up and take notice of how these very common movie scenes are done.

Well, heck, I hardly ever get to this incredibly great site, but here I am now, so I've joined KH's group, and I'll first comment that I just blundered in at the time when the stamp is being discussed, and see that it's the photo I first saw when I was 14 in a Daniel Blum book. I figured out then, and have never changed my mind, that I was looking at one of the world's most beautiful women. I know KH doesn't always get credit for that facet from everyone, but that's their problem! Only after that did I subsequently find out and figure out where she fit into Hollywood history, and I've always been so proud of her for her combination of talent, beauty and depth. She is always tied for first among my two "favorites" (I go back and forth between her and one other person for whom I have a lot of loyalty.)
Anyway, thank heavens there is a KH group on this website!

Wow, not counting my own messages, no one else has posted anything here in a half-year. That's just not right.

By the way, I did get those Kate postage stamps.

I was at my post office today and asked about the stamps...they had 1 left. Not one book, one stamp. They said they'd probably have more on Monday so I'll check again next week.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
