Kate Hepburn

I'm a goober. This is one of my top 5 movies of all time... and this, the opening scene just makes me laugh every time I see it especially when he lays her down at the end of it. i like how there's no words, just cheesy tuba music and drums.

I'm a Kate Hepburn fan in a huge way. I guess that should've been a clue I was gay years ago. I don't go for the normal diva's. Madonna annoys me. And Barbra Streisand is about as obnoxious as Bill O'Reily. For some reason though, Kate Hepburn movies entertain me without a good reason. Adam's Rib. Bringing Up Baby. Desk Set. They just are entertaining to me. But at the same time, given their context, several of her movies were really progressive and tackled social issues very directly, like Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.

Kate Hepburn is one of my 8 Fantasy Dinner Guests, but that's another blog entry for another time.

Yes think your right, but I am not that big of a fan. She is good. She ranks up there with some of my favorites like Peter O'Toole, Charleston Heston, Cicely Tyson and many other older actors who just don't do movies anymore. I believe Kate Hepburn died when I was a kid tho. I used to be very much into the older movies when I was growing up and I thought thats what the world was like. I still watch Alfred Hitchcock. Anyways your blog looked lonely for a reply and I thought I would be the first ;-)---Jonathan
