Kate is so sweet!
Even if you've never seen Katharine Hepburn in a film when she's younger, you'll absolutely fall in love with her in Laura Lansing Slept Here. She's an adorable little old lady, with spunk and charm twice as large as her stature. She plays a famous romance novelist who gets sucked into a bet by her publisher, Lee Richardson. Lee accuses her of being out of touch with her readers and challengers her to survive for one week in a normal family's home. For their trouble, the family will be paid $500 per day. How lucky, to get $3500 and spend a week with Katharine Hepburn!
The family is struggling for money, the teenage daughter Schuyler Grant has attitude, the husband Joel Higgins is distracted by a floozy at the office, and the wife Karen Austin lets her appearance take third priority to raising their three children and being mindful of their pocketbook. When Kate moves in, there's only the slightest adjustment period before she starts improving everyone's lives. While the story might give you a little cavity, I find the sweetness charming. Kate is adorable; where would the fun be in portraying her as an unreasonable grouch? It's much more enjoyable to see her helping out and making a difference. She truly is delightful, and there are several scenes where you'll want to reach into your television and give her a big hug. For Kate Hepburn fans, this is a must-see. For others, it's still a must-see. You'll probably become a fan after the first ten minutes.
