    What a lousy picture. I can well understand how, after this performance, Hepburn gained the title of "box office poison."

    One of Katherine Hepburn's few clinkers ( it's right up there with "Song Of Love" or "Rooster Cogburn") this stodgy, conventional film about a Victorian woman who is fighting stodginess and convention is, apart from its unintended irony, extremely dull. Indeed, the only time the movie crackles is when Hepburn and the great English actor Donald Crisp, playing her tyrannical father, are fighting with each other. Problem is that the crappy script by Ernest Vajda and Anthony Veiler makes the dumb move of keeping Crisp off the screen through the middle 75%of the film, so that the final father/daughter confrontation, meant to be the grand finale where Hepburn speaks out for women's rights while at the same time excoriating the coldness of her dad, lacks any dramatic or emotional impact whatsoever. The rest of the film is filled with ladies magazine dialogue and weak performances from milquetoasty actors like Herbert Marshall and Elizabeth Allan, while director Mark Sandrich shows all the visual flair of the 60s sit coms his sons shot. Give it a C minus.

    I'm not a big fan of Katharine Hepburn, but I did enjoy her in this film. She looked radiant throughout the movie except when she wore polka-dot veils. It was also neat to see a young Van Heflin. I thought it was him at first but I wasn't sure so I had to look it up. The storyline was okay - rather predictable but still fun to watch. It's unfortunate that 20 years later Hepburn made "The Iron Petticoat" and it's on now. Sad, really.

    K Heburn is at her best as a "Rebel". She is fun, confident and "smart" in this movie. One of my favorites!
