    STARS WHO MADE THE MOVIES BETTER, Katharine Hepburn by Molly Haskell (People Magazine)

    The cocked head, the hint of the suffragette, the broad Bryn Mawr a-brainy, brave, and beautiful, Katharine Hepburn most certainly was not going to be tamed and trussed by the studio system. She played rebels and upstarts and, ahead of her time, a feminist lawyer in Adam's Rib, a whimsical androgyne in Sylvia Scarlett, and a lady athlete (as it was then called) in Pat and Mike. With the unembarrassed confidence of breeding, she thumbed her nose at parts she didn't want. Since she's one of the few beauties to allow herself to grow old before our eyes, we know her now as the sensible-walking-shoe matriarch of On Golden Pond, but back in Morning Glory, she's so young and lovely she hurts your eyes.

    There was nothing cute or malleable about her. She never pleaded for love and, perhaps as a consequence, never became a mass taste. If we love her now, it's because some people, particularly certain women, are easier to love from a distance, when time has muted their sensuality, dulled the eyes that flashed too challengingly, made them less threatening. Happily, she lived long enough for time, and a later generation of women, to catch up to her defiant spirit. -Molly Haskell

    MUST-SEES

    *Bringing Up Baby (1938) In the best screw-ball comedy, she woos Cary Grant by driving him nuts.

    *The Philadelphia Story (1940) The lady's finest hour, with a tailor-made script and perfect-match support from Grant and Jimmy Stewart.
