Brian Aheme, Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant in Sylvia Scarlett directed by George Cukor, 1935:

I love Katherine Hepburn. And I must say, she makes a very pretty boy! ๐Ÿ™‚

I liked this film. It is an adventure.ย Sylvia and her father meet interesting characters on their journey. There’s laughter, heartache, misunderstandings, and grief, etc. And of course, Sylvia has to play the part of a boy if she wants to keep in step with her disguise. That does put her in awkward situations.

My hubby thought the film was a little zany.

This story is a little different, but I did like it. Have you seen Sylvia Scarlett? What did you think??? Enjoy!
