Hicksville here I come
18 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In her last dozen years of performing Katharine Hepburn went to television for several made for TV movies and each one of them was tailored to Kate's unique personality. If you were a Katharine Hepburn fan there's no way you could not love any one of them even though they're not the caliber of the material that won her four Best Actress Oscars.

Kate plays the title role in Laura Lansing Slept Here and where she's sleeping is Hicksville on Long Island. A frank conversation with her dutch uncle of a publisher Lee Richardson has told her she's lost touch with her reading audience and has become infatuated with her own celebrity. Richardson works out a bet with Hepburn that she can't spend a week with an average normal family. He's even got the normal family on tap. It's an accountant who works in his office and his wife Joel Higgins and Karen Austin and their three kids.

At first Hepburn comes on like a female version of Sheridan Whiteside, but gradually the family warms up to her and her life experience proves invaluable to Higgins, Austin and their offspring.

Hepburn is also rejuvenated creatively. If in real life that were ever possible because Kate never disappoints her audience in style or in substance. There's so much of her invested even in the worst of her performances on the big screen or small.

Fans of the great Kate will love Laura Lansing Slept Here. And I predict a few fans will be made if they see this movie.
