Normal Celebrating Old Hollywood
historicalcinema #2 — Katharine Hepburn. What was my first Katharine Hepburn movie? The Philadelphia Story, I think. I used to not like her. I didn't like her voice. But then I watched more and more. Kate is simply marvelous. There's no one like Kate. I highly recommend her book, Me. It's delightful. Really, truly delightful. My favorite movies of hers are Adam's Rib, Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, Pat And Mike, Alice Adams, Woman Of The Year and many more. The list is almost never ending. What are your favorite KH movies?

Side note: These "rankings" of OH female stars are built on a combination of their beauty and my personal feelings for them and their movies. This is an extremely difficult task. And as always, with each new movie, they fluctuate. Please enjoy!!

pulitzerprize Awarded in 1922, "Alice Adams" by Booth Tarkington was the 4th Pulitzer Prize winner for a novel. Like the three preceding winners, this novel centers around the main character, Alice, trying to gain acceptance into high society. She's of a lower class, so it's an uphill battle. I never really realized these themes were so common of the early winners until I started this project. Apparently, early 20th Century Americans were obsessed with wealth, class, and high society. I guess not much has changed, unfortunately. This was Booth Tarkington's second win. He was one of 3 multiple winners in this category. Also interesting fact, Alice Adams is also the name of a famous and award-winning Canadian writer.

cinemaclassic Alice Adams is a 1935 romantic film made by RKO. It was directed by George Stevens and produced by Pandro S. Berman. The screenplay was by Dorothy Yost, Mortimer Offner, and Jane Murfin. The film was adapted from the novel Alice Adams, by Booth Tarkington. The music score was by Max Steiner and Roy Webb, and the cinematography by Robert De Grasse.

The film is about a young woman in a medium-sized town in the United States in the early 1900s, and her pretentious attempts to appear upper-class and wed a wealthy man while concealing her poverty. It stars Katharine Hepburn, Fred MacMurray, Fred Stone and Evelyn Venable. Hepburn's popularity had declined after her Oscar-winning performance in 1933's Morning Glory; her performance in Alice Adams made her a public favorite again. #aliceadams #georgestevens #katharinehepburn #classicmovie #cinemaclassic #oldhollywood #vintage #goldenyears #follow #followme
