Christopher Strong

Tiresome, conventional 30s melodrama about a stiff Britisher (Colin Clive) torn between his wife (Billie Burke) and an aristocratic aviatrix (Katharine Hepburn). Dorothy Arzner's direction encourages feminist sympathies, only to dash them with a punitive finale that seems harsh even for the period. As Molly Haskell has noted, the costume design carries the brunt of the politics—Hepburn's jumpsuit is a revolution in itself (1933).
