Ah, yes, I remember it well
2 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this show when it first aired 36 years ago and never forgot it. I just watched it again; this TCM presentation was different in that it shows what went on when they were just setting up. I had the good fortune to transcribe some interviews with Hepburn over the years. Consequently, none of what went on in the set-up was very surprising.

What is so striking about the interview is Hepburn's sharp memory and still enormous energy - at the time of the interview, she was 66 years old. She is very funny, capable of self-deprecating humor as well as great insight. I especially appreciated the idea of "listening," which she didn't feel the youth of 1973 did very well. Wonder what she thought when the new century hit, if she thinks people were distracted in 1973.

It really doesn't matter what anyone says about her image being phony, etc. You can't fake intelligence, dignity, humor, and talent. Hepburn possessed all of these in spades, and her Cavett interviews are fantastic and not to be missed.
