Katharine Hepburn was unique, 25 July 2003

Katharine Hepburn plays Eva Lovelace who comes to New York dreaming to become a star in the world of theater.Morning Glory from 1933 is a fine drama.It has witty dialogue and the acting work is brilliant.Douglas Fairbanks Jr (1909-2000) plays Joseph Sheridan.But this movie works mostly because of Hepburn's excellent performance.She is just glorious in this movie.Morning Glory was her third movie and she won her first Oscar from this.Sadly this legendary actress died recently in the age of 96.The world lost a great talent in her.There will be no one like her again.But we can always watch her old movies like Morning Glory and be amazed by her greatness.Katharine Hepburn;The stage is yours!
