Storyline

Eva Lovelace, would-be actress trying to crash the New York stage, is a wildly optimistic chatterbox full of theatrical mannerisms. Her looks, more than her talent, attract the interest of a paternal actor, a philandering producer, and an earnest playwright. Is she destined for stardom or the "casting couch"? Will she fade after the brief blooming of a "morning glory"? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Quotes

Eva Lovelace: I hope you're going to tell me your name. I want you for my first friend in New York. Mine's Eva Lovelace. It's partly made up and partly real. It was Ada Love. Love's my family name. I added the 'lace.' Do you like it, or would you prefer something shorter? A shorter name would be more convenient on a sign. Still, 'Eva Lovelace in Camille,' for instance, or 'Eva Lovelace in Romeo and Juliet' sounds very distinguished, doesn't it?

Katharine Hepburn at the Angle of Assent
5 March 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Arriving in New York City from a small town in Vermont, ambitious and wafer-thin Katharine Hepburn (as Eva Lovelace) wants to be an actress. Her irresistible pretensions and unusual beauty catch the eye of playwright Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (as Joseph Sheridan) as Ms. Hepburn attempts to join the company of Broadway producer Adolphe Menjou (as Louis Easton). Hepburn's career staggers one step forward and two steps back, with her memorable moments highlighted by a tipsy impromptu performance of the "Romeo and Juliet" balcony scene at a snooty party...

This unoriginal, but appealing story would have worked better without lurching around so often...

Hepburn won her first "Academy Award" as "Best Actress" for this role; however, this "Oscar" was another in the film organization's puzzling choices. Note, the eligibility period was confused and extended, which inadvertently excluded Greta Garbo's "Queen Christina" from the running. Moreover, RKO quickly followed-up "Morning Glory" with a hit version of "Little Women". Hepburn was also perfectly mannered in her winning role, and received great support from an excellent cast. As the man attracted to Hepburn's true nature, Mr. Fairbanks is particularly good.
