Personal Quote:

[on Katharine Hepburn]: Her best work has not dated a fraction of an inch; from 1932 to 1945, she had it in her to be the most interesting, difficult, challenging woman in American pictures. Why? I'd guess it has to do with her confusion, for she loved movies while disapproving of them. See more »
