    Thank you for your fine review. Yeah, I have this BD release and will watch it in the near future. It's been many, many years since I last watched this film in its entirety. I didn't really care for it then, but it had its moments. There is a chance I might like it more today as my personal views of movies are constantly revolving as I get older.

    Who was is that noted in his review of Kate’s first appearance...

    Something like “can’t sing, balding, can dance a little?”

    I believe you mean Mr. Astaire's first appearance...

    I believe it was Dorothy Parker, who was reviewing Ms. Hepburn's stage debut in New York, in which she wrote something like, "Miss Hepburn's performance runs the gamut of emotions from A to B."

    Thanks for the kind words :)

    This is really a great disc and I think it’s an essential purchase if you’re a Hepburn fan. I’m extremely happy to have it on my shelf!

    The most famous review of Hepburn was Dorothy Parker's report on one of her early stage performances:
    "Miss Hepburn ran the gamut of emotions from A to B."

    That "can't sing, balding, can dance a little" review was written about Fred Astaire, not Katharine Hepburn. Why on earth would anyone accuse a young Kate Hepburn of being balding?!?!?
