Film series to salute Katharine Hepburn

California State University, Sacramento and Friends of the CSUS Library are celebrating the diverse roles of actress Katharine Hepburn with screenings of her films, followed by academic discussions with University and community film experts. All movies are showing on a large screen and begin at 6:30 p.m. in the University Union Hinde Auditorium. The free showings are part of the University’s Women’s History Month events.

The first film, Bringing Up Baby, will be shown Friday, March 5. It stars Cary Grant as a paleontologist and Hepburn as a scatterbrained heiress. CSUS humanities professor Alyson Buckman will discuss the film with the audience.

On Friday, March 12, CSUS presents Pat and Mike with Hepburn’s self-confessed favorite co-star Spencer Tracy. Hepburn portrays an accomplished athlete and Tracy a determined sports promoter. Humanities department chair Jackie Donath leads the discussion after the movie.

The African Queen screens Friday, April 16. Hepburn plays a missionary and Humphrey Bogart a boat captain in pre-World War I East Africa. The organizer of the Sacramento French Film Festival, Cecile Mouette, will guide the post-film conversation.

On Friday, April 23, the University will show 1940’s Philadelphia Story. Hepburn stars with James Stewart and Cary Grant in this story of a woman who realizes she holds impossibly high standards for her friends and family. CSUS English professor Mary Mackey will lead the lecture.
