Famous quotes containing the words theatre, hepburn and/or film:

    People fall out of windows, trees tumble down,
    Summer is changed to winter, the young grow old
    The air is full of children, statues, roofs
    And snow. The theatre is spinning round,
    Colliding with deaf-mute churches and optical trains.
    The most massive sopranos are singing songs of scales.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    We need to see men and women as equal partners, but it’s hard to think of movies that do that. When I talk to people, they think of movies of forty-five years ago! Hepburn and Tracy!
    Betty Friedan (b. 1921)

    This film is apparently meaningless, but if it has any meaning it is doubtless objectionable.
    —British Board Of Film Censors. Quoted in Halliwell’s Filmgoer’s Companion (1984)
