Greatest Classic Films: Katharine Hepburn
Hepburn won her first Best Actress Oscar playing Eva Lovelace, who has one ambition: be a success on Broadway. Her chance comes when a producer replaces his star with Eva, who's a smash! Success bring romance, and Eva becomes entangled in a love triangle.
All tom-boyishness and spunk, Hepburn is Jo, the center of the Civil War-era tale of heart and hearth. Directed by George Cukor, this version of Louisa May Alcott's classic won overwhelming support (and on Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay) during the Depression.
A fast, witty story of aspiring actresses starring those at the top of their game: Ginger Rogers, Ann Miller, Lucille Ball, Eve Arden and Hepburn. What usually matters most to an acting hopeful is an open door, but Stage Door suggests some things matter more.
The Philadelphia Story
Here comes the bride! And the ex-husband. And a gossip-rag columnist. Here come Hepburn, Cary Grant and Best Actor winner James Stewart in a peerless comedy romance about a socialite who gets her comeuppance and an unexpected Mr. Right. Directed by George Cukor.
