Katharine Hepburn Tribute Movies?

Recommended Posts

The one day I was hoping that they wouldn't run the Hepburn Tribute turned out to be the day! I was eagerly anticipating for two months now, June 10th so I could watch the movies scheduled for the John Gilbert birthday celebration. In particular I have been wanting to catch He Who Gets Slapped for year's now. I guess I'll have to wait for the DVD in October. Bummer!

In regards to both "State of the Union" (1948) (***1/2) & the superb all Irish 1958 "Last Hurrah" The former was originally M-G-M-(but it's unlikely the same on video? & the latter in which *Spence actually meant it to be his finis! He started with *John Ford & figured he'd end-it with him also. It was his 68th film. & A DANDY AS WELL!!! But she's correct Columbia orig. released-it!) A little Ironic/trivia for you fans! *Spencer Tracy died in June as well!? June 10th, 1967 to be exact. *Katharine Hepburn had the most & as it should be! Private funeral,etc I can recall-(Even recently, couple yrs. ago to be exact. They re-buried Garbo's ashes in Stockholm, Sweden) However *Kate's mother, father,,etc I pretty certain were interred in C.T.

4-got to answer your question? Yes, both of those pix are on Video! I'm 100 per cent positive & they are also on TCM quite a bit. "Last Hurrah," more then "State of the Union"-(which was a touchy set! Adolph Menjou had named, names & snitched on several in the community & *Tracy & *Hepburn were head of Hollywood contigent that went to Washington to protest!!!)
