Hepburn: You hit the nail on the head with Kate, re looks. What always endeared me to her was that she could be so striking without being "beautiful." Most of what I saw of her were later roles, particlularly her roles with Spencer Tracy. The chemistry between them was magical, comedic or dramatic. Adam's Rib and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner exemplified both, in many ways. And I echo your thoughts on The African Queen. How many times has Hollywood tried to copy that tough guy/bossy woman, adventure-love story. Now that i think of it, I'm due for a Bogart fest and that would be a great one to watch. (Maybe Key Largo too).
