Goofs

When they are on the raft at night, Eula and Rooster are talking. When the camera is on Rooster, we see the background moving as if he is facing downstream. Similarly, when Eula is in shot, she appears to moving downstream. As they are facing each other, it is impossible for them to be both facing downstream. See more »

Hepburn & the Duke made a fairly decent movie and that's enough reason to see it at least once. The fact that Hepburn has a Father in the movie is suspect, at best, especially since he's not played by Moses himself. But that's besides the point here - they have terrific chemistry and their star power alone could put most of the actors on the screen today to shame. It would have been really memorable if the movie were worthy of them, though.
