Katharine Hepburn won her first of four Academy Awards for this enjoyable distraction about a wannabe actress looking to crash her way into the world of Broadway success. She charms producers and directors, she delivers drunken Shakespearean monologues at late-night parties, and through it all we’re wondering if she’ll end up in the big time or living on the casting couch. Hepburn’s endless vigour livens up a pretty hammy story that doesn’t take long to figure out (or to even watch: the film only runs just over an hour).
