While the plot was light and whimsical, the message was not subtle for women of that era. Grow older, lose looks, lose suitor. But here is the endearing part, Dr. Brown loved Phoebe, and was only interested in Livvie because she reminded him of her. This was an homage to true love, one that endures no matter how time treats the lovers. It also showed the difference between the gentry who thought of themselves as old maids at thirty and the hired help who believed they could still find love after forty. Besides that, Katharine Hepburn was lovely to look at and Franchot Tone dashingly handsome and the chemistry between them was magic. I couldn't think of a better way to spend 80 minutes than to watch this gem. LOVED IT!
This movie is what I like to refer to as whip topping. It's not a substantial movie filled with a dynamic story or meaty roles. It has plot errors and generic acting. However, it is a cute little romp of a romance comedy. Certainly not my favorite Hepburn movie, but she still brings the quirky charm that she did in Bringing Up Baby. Yes, it does take some suspension of common sense to believe that Doctor Brown couldn't recognize Livvy is actually his sweetheart Phoebe, but I put it along the same lines as Lois Lane not recognizing Clark Kent is Superman.Overall, this is a cute fluff piece that you can just sit back and enjoy for what it is.
This has to be one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. How Tone could not tell Hepburn was the same person was beyond me. Truly ridiculous.
Quality Street (1937)
- James Higgins
There a very few Katherine Hepburn movies that I feel are sub par, and this is one of them. I didn't care for her performance and the film is way too talky, bringing on some boredom. However, the costumes and sets are wonderful, as is the supporting cast.
GREAT MOVIE!! One of the funniest romances..

This movie had me laughing when I was a teenager in the 80's. It's for those who love a good romance and a great laugh.. I put it up there with Strawberry Blond and Pride and Prejudice wtih Lawrence Oliviee.. Fabulous Darling!!
