Within the annals of successful George Stevens films Alice Adams tends to get forgotten quite often. Which is odd considering it was his first major success (nominated for Best Picture) but is less odd considering it’s winsome, and comedic and sweet in a way that we generally films fans tend not to remember Stevens. Of course, knowing my allegiances, you’d probably already have guessed that if I’m talking the loveliness of Alice Adams, sooner or later I plan on segueing to Katharine Hepburn.
The other dinner-table scene I tend to remember easily is the more explosive one in Gosford Park. What do you remember when you think of movie dinners?
(PS. You may have noticed that I’ve been MIA for a month or so, I have returned. Cheers.)
