Stage Door

92 minutes 1937

RKO remade this Edna Ferber-George S. Kaufman play into a vehicle for Katharine Hepburn and Ginger Rogers, and while it sometimes lapses into pure corn, it nevertheless manages to capture the manic-depressive dormitory atmosphere of young actresses trying to make it in New York (circa 1937). The lines are witty and the Rogers-Hepburn pairing (Rogers, pseudotough and on the offensive; Hepburn, starry-eyed rebel, always parrying) is appealing and funny. Gregory La Cava, master of the off-the-cuff style of 30s comedy, directed and won the New York Film Critics Circle prize for his effort. With Adolphe Menjou, Eve Arden, Lucille Ball, Gail Patrick, Ann Miller, Jack Carson, Franklin Pangborn, and Grady Sutton.
