Pre Quiz Blurb

I think my interest in old movies actually started due to a combination of astrology and Charlie’s Angels (the TV show).

Charlie’s Angels was the first television show that I obsessed over – making lists of every episode that I could remember and eventually making sure I saw all of those episodes again in order to identify them by title (e.g. “Angels on Ice”). I also collected magazine articles and old TV Guides and even resorted to minor  thievery to satisfy my Angel memorabilia habit. One of the things I “stole” was the biography of Kate Jackson (my favorite Angel, no duh.) out of the school library. I was already embarrassed to be checking it out and I made sure to do so when no other children were around. Then I lied and said I lost it so I could pay for the book. The cost: seven dollars, some shame and guilt. “Kate Jackson: A Special Kind of Angel” belonging to me… priceless!

Anyway, one of the things I read reported that Kate Jackson was a big fan of Katharine Hepburn. Of course this meant I had to become a big fan of Katharine Hepburn too. It was pretty easy to do, become a fan. Although I’ve never been obsessed or anything; I only stood in her driveway and I just happened to be there, like out for a walk in Connecticut or whatever. And I should go ahead and say it, but my obsession with Kate Jackson faded after “Scarecrow and Mrs. King,” and I haven’t collected any Kate Jackson movies – not that “Inmates: A Love Story” wasn’t riveting.

In the next post are some quotes from some of my favorite Hepburn movies. Because, why not? I’ve been home sick for a few days and I’m a little bored. Humor me!

  1. I never saw Charlie’s Angels, so my Kate Jackson crush started with Scarecrow and Mrs. King.
