Katherine Hepburn

Posted on 30th December, 2022

A surprise to see her second film Christopher Strong (1933), made before Hollywood had to abide by the Code: she plays an aviatrix who falls for her best friend's father in what purports to be England. And, what's more, with opening scenes redolent of the motorised treasure hunts which were a part of an evening's entertainment for the Bright Young Things of Waugh's novel at that time.


If not a film whose relatively brief running time does not alow it to cohere as well as it might, this is more than diverting.
