film meme» eight female characters [3/8]: Tracy Samantha Lord

 ”The time to make up your mind about people is never.”

Tracy has her whole life figured out. She has chosen the perfect husband in George Kittredge, a self made millionaire, someone who she sees as her equal. But there are certain aspects of her own personality that she would rather not face. Her own intolerance towards the faults of others, for one. Tracy holds herself to very high standards, and has little patience for those who do not live up to them. She denies having any faults of her own, but during the course of the story she is confronted by people who force her to see herself as she really is. In an attempt to run from that truth, she turns to champagne, only to realize that when all is said and done, she is quite human after all. [x]

That’s the gist of it; because you’ll never be a first-class human being or a first-class woman, until you’ve learned to have some regard for human frailty. It’s a pity your own foot can’t slip a little sometime - but your sense of inner divinity wouldn’t allow that. This goddess must and shall remain intact. There are more of you than people realize - a special class of the American Female. The Married Maidens.

Happy Birthday Katharine!

↳ (May 12, 1907 – June 29, 2003)

 ”As an actress she’s a joy to work with she’s in there every minute. There isn’t anything passive about her she ‘gives’ and as a person she’s real.”

Cary Grant

"Time with her was more than time well spent a little bit either was worth days and weeks and months with somebody else."

Lauren Bacall

Scewball comedies

(Screw-ball [skrue’bol] Noun, Slang, meaning unbalanced, erratic, irrational, unconventional), became a popular slang word in the 1930s. It was applied to films where everything was a juxtaposition: educated and uneducated, rich and poor, intelligent and stupid, honest and dishonest, and most of all male and female. When two people fell in love, they did not simply surrender to their feelings, they battled it out. They lied to one another, often assuming indifferent personas toward each other. They often employed hideous tricks on each other, until finally after running out of inventions, fall into each others arms. It was fossilized comedy, physical and often painful, but mixed with the highest level of wit and sophistication, depending wholly on elegant and inventive writing. Even the supporting cast was always of first-rate. Character actors playing eccentric types as well as a stable of familiar faces in leading roles (Cary Grant, William Powell, Carole Lombard, Claudette Colbert, Katharine Hepburn) [x].
