  1. Of course now you've prompted me to get a big bucket of popcorn (and some Pepsi, please, in honor of good ol' Al) and settle down to watch it this weekend. Glad to help! -Susan
  2. This is a big stretch - doesn't Joan Crawford (Faye Dunaway) call hubby, Alfred Steele, "Pally" in Mommie Dearest? And he says something like, "Pally, that's what she calls ya before she socks ya." ??? I told you it was a s-t-r-e-t-c-h! -Susan

    You are correct, scoc61, that is Dorothy Dandridge! She is one of the "Dandridge Sisters" credited in the opening title of the show that Irene, the Princess and her posse go to see near the end of the film. She appears on the balcony during the "Sweet Little Alice Blue Gown" number. Beautiful, isn't she? -Susan
  4. I echo Larry's sentiments, and if you'll permit, also call you Joe (what a nice name!) I look forward to reading your entries in other threads. Many Thanks! -Susan
  5. Maybe "Splendor in the Grass" with Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty? But I don't think she ends up with the doctor at the end, I remember her going to the farm to visit him and she asks him if he's happy. Maybe someone else can chime in. -Susan

    I love, love, love, this movie! Did I say I love it? It never fails to make me laugh. Love the interaction between Hepburn, Tracy and Blondell, the old pros together look like they are having a ball. Something in this viewing that I didn't see before - the Christmas party scene where everyone is in the office dancing - Hepburn is in the background dancing around with Tracy's "old school" scarf. And the "champagne" scene always gets me laughing, when Blondell is talking about the new coupe de ville circling around the block and Kate says, it has always been my experience, when a car is circling
  7. All joking aside, she also had a reputation for being a faithful friend, very generous to her family and household staff, most of whom stayed with her for 40 - 50 years. I just received my latest book order from Amazon and it contains a book about life with Kate by the daughter of her housekeeper, Nora. It contains many personal photos, anecdotes, the famous brownie recipe and other recipes that Hepburn enjoyed. Hepburn certainly marched to her own drummer and was "unique". One story has Hepburn and Nora out in the garden behind her Turtle Bay bownstone picking flowers for a dinner party later
  8. Hepburn had a reputation as bossy, crusty, rude, pushy, no-nonsense. She was known to "boss" the crew around. I remember reading somewhere that while making a particular film Hepburn was being a holy terror. The director spoke to her about it, in front of the crew. She half-jokingly said (I'm paraphrasing), "Mr. "Director", I think you'd better apologize to me, some of the crew and I have worked on many films together and if you're not careful you may find yourself tripping over a misplaced cable or having a light crash down on you." The director looked up onto the catwalk and said "Is that ri
  9. VaINY, I seem to remember that she went to her doctor or a doctor friend of hers, saying, "I was badly beaten, what would I look like?" and the MD made her up, even sticking the cotton gauze up her nostrils. People really thought someone beat her up. That's our Bette, anything for the part! -Susan
  10. And I am surprised that her ghost didn't come and bonk me on the head. It's spelled, Katharine.
  11. Ah, the red carpet! Hepburn had a very canny eye and was very savvy about lighting. Could be that with her red hair and coloring, she thought the reflected color from the carpet would be too much. Also, she had eye problems in later years from the fall into the canal she took during the filming of "Summertime" and it may have bothered her eyes. Probably, you're right, ben, she just thought it was ugly and was trying to help them redecorate. Still, you cannot deny, she was/is "Fascinating"! -Susan
  12. johnpressman, I recall watching a PBS documentary on Arthur Miller or John Huston or something about the making of the film, "The Misfits" and cast member Eli Wallach spoke about the "telephone scene". He said that it was a tense set with various personal dramas occurring, Clift's pain and reliance on pain medication and alcohol among them. Huston was concerned with staging the scene and didn't know if Clift would be able to get through it. Cameras started rolling and the scene was done as is shown, one take. Elizabeth Taylor truly loved him, in her eyes he was always "beautiful". I think
  13. Larry, so nice to hear about your experiences, thanks ever so much for taking us along! Susan
