  1. Cukor’s films are incredibly diverse, but they seem to get the label “women’s pictures” for their reliance on emotion, rather than action. I’m a big fan of Katharine Hepburn, as you know and together they did some brilliant pictures. For me the trio of The Philadelphia Story, Adam’s Rub and Sylvia Scarlett is most prominent. Still on his good days and his bad days, Cukor always had something to say.
