Alice Adams (1935)

This was the first major film directed by George Stevens. He later went on to win two directing Oscars for Giant and A Place in the Sun in addition to three other nominations for Shane, The More the Merrier, and The Diary of Anne Frank.

I hate to say I don't like this movie because it was well done all around. I just don't like the character of Alice Adams. She's played by Katharine Hepburn who, as always, does a great job. I actually don't think the audience is meant to like her. She not bad at all, she just is so worried about what other people think of her that it drives you crazy. I honestly didn't want her to end up with the guy at the end because I was hoping he'd escape her insanity.

92 to go...
