  1. When this movie (SYLVIA SCARLETT (1935) came out critics mentioned her androgynous good looks:
    "The dynamic Miss Hepburn is the handsomest boy of the season" (New York Harold Tribune)
    "SYLVIA SCARELTT reveals the interesting fact that Katharine Hepburn is better looking as a boy than as a woman" (Time)
    "It is a tour de force made possible by her physical resemblance to the adolescent male" (New York Post).
