    Fair enough, it's not a favourite of mine either. Never liked Katharine Hepburn as an actor and don't own any of her films on disc. Bogie is a different matter. Watched The Caine Mutiny and The Enforcer over the weekend. Like Gable, brilliant in everything.

    Yes I had that problem as well due to the thick - but excellent - booklet which was almost jammed into the thick slipcase.

    Picture quality is fabulous. I no longer have the previous ITV Studios disc to compare but I recall that being a bit problematic.

    Along with others, I'm not a fan of Katherine Hepburn, especially as her performances became more mannered over the years and she almost ruins the film for me.

    Man, I'm tired of people throwing shade on my home girl Katherine.;) Seriously, it's funny how almost every single legendary actress has a vocal minority that don't like their acting style. I see some similar negative comments about legendary actors too, but, not to the degree as their female counterparts. Is there some gender bias?

    There are only a few whose work i don't care for at all. Two others are Joan Crawford and Sterling Hayden. Perhaps there should be a separate thread.

    Go for it as you're the one that brought up your dislike for Hepburn in the first place.:)

    I can't think of any of the great stars of that era that I don't like.

    Offhand, I think the only one I can't stand is Mickey Rooney, at any age.

    Maybe they wouldn't throw shade on her if her name was Katharine :)

    There isn't a single star from the Golden Age who isn't disliked by somebody somewhere. I even know somebody who can't stand -gasp- Barbara Stanwyck! My own can't stand 'em list is headed by the frozen faced, guttural voiced Marlene Dietrich and the piece of wood that goes by the name of Henry Fonda.:DAnd don't get me started on that whiny insipid Teresa Wright!

    . . . and this outrageous sacrilege comes from an unashamed devotee of . . . . . . June Allyson! :) (No prizes for guessing which star of yesteryear I don't like :))

    Almost every star of the classic age of movies was also hated at the time by many people as well, of course, just like the celebrities of today. I for instance would cheerfully watch a live broadcast of Adam Sandler being flogged!!

    I never met him personally, but I know a number of people who worked with him near the end of his career, and not one of them had a nice thing to say about him.

    There is the famous interview TCM host Robert Osborne did with Mickey Rooney and at one point Mickey got really angry about something that happened to him years ago. I like Katherine Hepburn and a good performance in The African Queen.

    Yes, Kate must have rolled over in her grave. I’ll be scrutinizing your posts for some payback.;)

    Unashamed? You mean proud acolyte of the Junebug cult! :D For your blasphemous remarks, I'm making a Robin9 voodoo doll. Now where did I put those pins?

    Yes, that was part of his Private Screenings interview series. Mickey was discussing director Roy Rowland, and the incident happened on Killer McCoy when Mickey took offense at some direction and walked off the set and the lot. What was particularly disappointing about that interview is that so many of Mickey's movies went undiscussed since it seems like that outburst kind of ended the interview.

    We all have our pet dislikes. My wife's is Henry Fonda. Mine is Barbara Stanwyck. They probably wouldn't care for us either. My absolute favourites are Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Peter Lorre. What a movie they would have made together!
