Alice Adams (1935) - Katherine Hepburn DVD
Alice Adams (1935)
Clutching her corsage of violets and in a dress she hopes no one will notice she wore to last year's dance, Alice Adams is ready for South Renford's biggest evening of the year-and to pose as something she longs to be: one of the town's social elite. In this adaptation of Booth Tarkington's novel, Katharine Hepburn hit a career peek with her moving performance as social climber Alice, trying to push her clodhopper family to the background and assuming airs to win the love of an amiable, wealthy young man (Fred MacMurray). George Stevens directs, marking a career breakthrough with this funny, tenderly real comedy of Americana and manners, now glowingly rendered in a new digital transfer from restored picture and audio elements.
