A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT (1932) Directed by George Cukor
In her screen debut, Katharine Hepburn plays Sydney, the daughter of a man (John Barrymore) recently released after years of treatment in a mental hospital. Contemplating her own mental stability, Sydney weighs her prospects as a wife and mother, leading to momentous decisions. The film was a surprise hit and the 25 year–old Hepburn holds her own against Barrymore and Billie Burke as Sydney's mother. 35mm, 76 min.
