Kate the Great
13 March 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Katharine Hepburn was one of those players who put her indefinable stamp on everything she ever did. As she points out even after becoming a personality she deliberately went after roles that stretched her talents. This was one woman not afraid of any of the challenges life brought her.

This is one fine documentary mixing some of Kate's home movies with her film roles and some other candid home movie and newsreel features from her long career. When this documentary came out in 1993 the candle was almost run down, but she had a few good things left in her.

Playing roles like Tracy Lord, or Linda Seton, even Pat Pemberton they were parts that were tailored to the Hepburn image. But as she said taking on Shakespeare, O'Neill, and Greek tragedies are proved parts that dare the player to do them as good as the many who came before. Katharine Hepburn did Shakespeare on stage so we have no record, but you can't tell me that when you watch O'Neill's Long Days Journey Into Night or The Trojan Women you can't see a bit of Kate in her performances.

Of course Spencer Tracy took up a great deal of the documentary. One of the great screen teams of all time, every one of their films, nine of them, rates being called a classic. And the respect that the film community had for both of them. They could never live as they did with today's tabloid press and the internet.

Katharine Hepburn one American original. We'll not see her like again.
