TCM Greatest Classic Films: Legends - Katharine Hepburn (4FE) 6000073851 MORNING GLORY (1933) Katharine Hepburn won her first Academy Award® as Best Actress in this, her third film performance. She stars as Eva Lovelace, a girl from a New England country town who has but one burning ambition: to become a successful stage actress. Arriving in New York, she manages to make friends quickly and even lands a small part in a Broadway show. Her big chance comes when the producer Louis Easton (Adolph Menjou) fires the star (Mary Duncan) and puts Eva on stage. Naturally, she’s a smash! Success also brings romance, and Eva becomes entangled in a love triangle with Easton and Writer Joseph Sheridan (Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.). INCLUDES: Subtitles: English & Français (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled).
LITTLE WOMEN (1933) Directed by George Cukor, this charming 1933 version of Louisa May Alcott’s literary classic won overwhelming support (plus an Oscar® for Best Adapted Screenplay). All tomboyishness and spunk, Hepburn is Jo, the center of the Civil War-era tale of heart and hearth. Released during the depths of the Depression, the film buoyed Americans’ spirits. It still does. INCLUDES: Scoring Session Music Cues • Notes on the Hepburn/Cukor Collaboration & Awards Subtitles: English, Français & Español (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled). STAGE DOOR (1937) Ginger Rogers and Ann Miller tap in time and rat-a-tat lines. Lucille Ball braves a date with an obnoxious lumber baron. Eve Arden can’t recall Hamlet, but one meets so many people in the big city. And Hepburn becomes Broadway’s biggest star in a play wherein she notes “the calla lilies are in bloom again.” A fast, witty story of aspiring actresses living at a theatrical boarding house. What matters most to an acting hopeful is an open door. With humor and heart, this excellent movie suggests some things matter more. INCLUDES: Musical Short Ups and Downs, Audio-Only Bonus: Radio Production with Ginger Rogers and Rosalind Russell Subtitles: English, Français & Español (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled).
THE PHILADELPHIA STORY (1940) Here comes the bride! And the ex-husband. And a gossip-rag columnist on assignment. Here come Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart in a peerless comedy romance (directed by George Cukor) about a faultfinding, bride-to-be socialite who gets her comeuppance and an unexpected Mr. Right. Hepburn rekindled her stardom with a beguiling reprise of her 1939 Broadway role. Stewart won his only Best Actor Academy Award®* as the wisecracking scribe. INCLUDES: Commentary by Historian Jeanine Basinger • George Cukor Movie Trailer Subtitles: English, Français & Español (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled).
