Movies starring Katharine Hepburn

Christopher Strong

Christopher Strong (1933)   3/53/53/53/53/5

78 mins     Drama      

As a fan of movies I don't need much of a reason to watch a movie but I can give you two reasons to watch "Christopher Strong" a drama from way back in 1933. Firstly this was Katharine Hepburn's 2nd movie and one where you ca...

Morning Glory

Morning Glory (1933)   3/53/53/53/53/5

74 mins     Drama, Romance      

I will lay it on the line, the storyline to "Morning Glory" whilst good is nothing special not only because the story of a wannabe actress is a familiar one and the fact that this was remade some years later but also because ...

Little Women

Little Women (1933)   3/53/53/53/53/5

115 mins     Drama, Family, Romance      

The 1933 version of "Little Women" is in fact the fourth version I have watched and in some ways you could say that I have watched them back to front having first watched the 1994 version, then the 1978 TV mini-series which w...

The Little Minister

The Little Minister (1934)   3/53/53/53/53/5

110 mins     Drama, Romance      

Turn off your phones, silence the clocks and put a do not disturb sign on the door because you will want silence to watch "The Little Minister" the 1934 adaptation of the J.M. Barrie novel. I say this partly because it is an ...

Sylvia Scarlett

Sylvia Scarlett (1935)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

When "Sylvia Scarlett" was released way back in 1935 it was the first of 4 movies which Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant made together but was more notable for being a flop. The public didn't get and to be honest I can see wh...

Stage Door

Stage Door (1937)   4/54/54/54/54/5

92 mins     Comedy, Drama      

"Stage Door" not only has a stellar cast featuring Ginger Rogers, Katharine Hepburn, Eve Arden, Ann Miller, Lucille Ball, Andrea Leeds and Adolphe Menjou it is also a stellar movie. On first look it appears to be a comedy abo...


Holiday (1938)   4/54/54/54/54/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

It's quite sad that it takes a movie over 70 years old to put a smile on my face and keep it there from start to finish but that is the case of "Holiday" or "Free to Live" as it is also known. More remarkably is that "Holiday...

Bringing Up Baby

Bringing Up Baby (1938)   5/55/55/55/55/5

102 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Considering when originally released back in 1938 it was a flop it's kind of ironic that now "Bringing Up Baby" is held in such high esteem as one of the greatest screwball comedies ever made. And to be honest it deserves the...

The Philadelphia Story

The Philadelphia Story (1940)   5/55/55/55/55/5

112 mins     Comedy, Romance      

What can you say about a movie which regularly features in the top half of almost every important top 100 movie list other than it is great. "The Philadelphia Story" is without a doubt a brilliant movie a 5 out of 5 which des...

Woman of the Year

Woman of the Year (1942)   3/53/53/53/53/5

114 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn made an impressive 9 movies together all of which it has to be said are enjoyable. But whilst there are funnier movies that they made together there is something about their first movie tog...

Keeper of the Flame

Keeper of the Flame (1942)   3/53/53/53/53/5

100 mins     Drama      

For me the best Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn movies were those where they played warring partners, where the chemistry and wicked banter would fly between them and off of the screen. As such I just didn't enjoy "Keeper...


Adam's Rib (1949)   4/54/54/54/54/5

101 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn made an impressive 9 movies together and out of those 9 "Adam's Rib" is one of the best. With Tracy and Hepburn paired up as a married couple who find themselves on different sides of the c...

The African Queen

The African Queen (1951)   4/54/54/54/54/5

105 mins     Adventure , Drama, Romance      

To be frank "The African Queen" perplexes me, actually the movie itself doesn't perplex me but the countless plaudits from those who proclaim its greatness, and don't get me wrong as I do think it is a good movie but great do...

Pat and Mike

Pat and Mike (1952)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Maybe because Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn were so good together, with such great chemistry and made everything seem so natural and easy that I find "Pat and Mike" a little to easy going. That doesn't mean that it isn'...

Desk Set

Desk Set (1957)   4/54/54/54/54/5

103 mins     Comedy, Romance      

There is something quite amusing when you consider the premise of "Desk Set" as you have a team of researchers fretting over their jobs as computers are introduced. It's amusing because you wouldn't think that over 50 years a...

Guess Who

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967)   4/54/54/54/54/5

108 mins     Drama, Romance      

In what would be his last movie, Spencer Tracy makes "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" a classic delivering one of his most captivating performances as Matt Drayton a liberal father who finds his liberal beliefs tested when his ...

Rooster Cogburn

Rooster Cogburn (1975)   3/53/53/53/53/5

108 mins     Action , Comedy, Drama, Western      

In 1969 the legendary John Wayne delivered one of his iconic performances as hard-nosed U.S. Marshal Reuben J. 'Rooster' Cogburn in the classic "True Grit". Shame then that he reprised the character in the 1975 movie "Rooster...

The Corn Is Green

The Corn Is Green (1979)   3/53/53/53/53/5

93 mins     Drama, TV Movie      

"The Corn Is Green" is based on the biographical play by Emlyn Williams and over the years the central role of Miss Moffat has been played on stage by Ethel Barrymore and in an earlier movie by Bette Davis. Because of that th...

On Golden Pond

On Golden Pond (1981)   5/55/55/55/55/5

109 mins     Drama      

If you combine the cantankerous nature Of Clint Eastwood's Walt Kowalski in "Gran Torino" with James Stewart's charm that he demonstrated in various movies you would get Henry Fonda's grumpy but lovable Norman Thayer Jr. in t...

One Christmas

One Christmas (1994)   2/52/52/52/52/5

86 mins     Drama, TV Movie      

One Christmas: Henry Winkler stars as the conman spending Christmas with his son who he is disappointed by him whist also dealing with the formidable Cornelia Beaumont (Katharine Hepburn)...
