Keeper of the Flame (1943)
But more than romance, what defines the Hepburn/Tracy spirit is a progressive take on gender politics. Midcentury rom-coms might not be the first place you’d expect to find early rumblings of feminist thought and attacks on toxic masculinity, but Hepburn and
In Illusoria players are taken to the Kingdom of Illusoria and placed in the role of the Keeper of the Flame.

But fans looking for explosive breakup tunes in the vein of "Gunpowder and Lead" or "Kerosene" won't find it here. Instead, Lambert offers deliciously subtle clues into her psyche, showing off her songwriting prowess like the pro that she is, complete with an abundance of nerve and heart -- as well as grit and classic country vibes.

Joining Lambert on the ride are producers Frank Liddell, Glenn Worf, and Eric Masse, along with a powerful stable of co-writers. Among them: Lambert's boyfriend, Anderson East; longtime pals Ashley Monroe and Gwen Sebastian; Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance; and Nashville hitmakers Shane McAnally, Natalie Hemby, and Liz Rose, among many, many others.

The niece of one of the crew members, the girl wanted to hand-deliver to the Israeli actress a picture she had drawn of Wonder Woman, along with a note.
“She wrote that she wished me luck and she was Wonder Woman’s No. 1 fan,” recalls Gadot. “I keep it with me.”
That encounter during last year’s production of “Batman v Superman,” which marked the movie debut of the decades-old female superhero, was a poignant reminder of Wonder Woman’s enduring prominence in the comic-book canon.
It also underscores the stakes that Gadot, Warner Bros., and DC Comics face as they ready the

1940s: Philadelphia Story,
Early on, I stated that sometimes Kate’s career seems charmed. I’d venture 1948 is one of those charmed years. As we saw last week, Song of Love failed--Kate’s first failure at MGM. Yet some strange circumstances and good luck landed Kate in State of the Union, based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning play. I say “good luck” because in the fall of 1947, the storm that would become the Hollywood Blacklist was brewing, and Kate nearly got caught in the center of it.
Though not as cloyingly obvious as Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - no light from the Lincoln Memorial in this film - State of the Union nevertheless delivers the classic Capra Corn package: nostalgia, patriotism, and a happy ending snatched from the jaws of tragedy at the last second.
In which I'm not entirely sure what's going on but it seems to involve boy scouts and fascism.
So, you’re a major studio with a bona fide hit on your hands. You’ve thrown two Academy Award winners, neither a matinee idol in their own right, into a romantic comedy, and the sparks between them burst with unexpected chemistry. The result is a commercial and critical smash that will garner two Oscar nominations and one win (for Best Screenplay). Clearly, another movie between Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn is desired. The next question is: how do you follow an immediate classic?
If your answer is “with a heavy-handed, jingoistic melodrama about fascism,” then you’re crazy, but you’re also right. The tonal about-face from the lighthearted Woman of the Year to Tracy and Hepburn’s next film,
Independent producers Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures have developed “Tracy and Hepburn” with David Rambo writing the script. Story would follow the relationship between the two — from their meeting at MGM before making “Woman of the Year” in 1942 to Tracy’s death in 1967 after they worked on “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.”
Tracy died 17 days after shooting wrapped on “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” Hepburn won her second of four Oscars for the performance.
Tracy remained married throughout the affair, which was kept private with both maintaining separate residences. Hepburn began speaking about the affair in the early 1980s.
Producers are David Permut, John Dayton and Lisa Richardson. Exec producers are Permut Presentation’s Chris Mangano, Reunion Pictures’ Tom Rowe and Matthew O’Connor.
Richardson told Variety that plans are
The Film Society of Lincoln Center will be running a complete retrospective on the director, "The Discreet Charm of George Cukor," in New York December 13, 2013 - January 7, 2014. Many thanks to David Phelps, Fernando Ganzo, and Camille Pollas for their generous permission.

Notes on Cukor
Above: The Chapman Report (1962), A Life of Her Own (1950)
“There’s always something about them that you don’t know that you’d like to know. Spencer Tracy had that. In fact, they do all have that – all the big ones have it. You feel very close to them but there is the ultimate thing withheld from you – and you want to find out.” —George Cukor1
“Can you tell what a woman’s like by just looking at her?” —The Chapman Report

Andrew checks out the creepy lullabies and ominous chords of Mark Ayres' score for Seventh Doctor story, Ghost Light...
The music of Doctor Who is worthy of a documentary in itself. While Matthew Sweet's interval interviews during the recent Doctor Who at the Prom broadcast on Radio 3 hit the spot, you get the feeling that there's several hours of indulgent geekery in there for a show to chew over. Inevitably contributing would be Ghost Light's composer, Mark Ayres.
You may have seen him in the Prom Clips, conspiring with Peter Howell from behind banks of synths to perform the score from The Sea Devils to a disbelieving yet delighted audience. Ayres and Howell are of the Eighties, the decade where the composer was largely left to their own devices with only some synthesisers and a long-sleeved-shirt for company. No Library Music or four-piece woodwind scores for them.
