Alice Adams (film)

Alice Adams, also known as Booth Tarkington's Alice Adams, is a 1935 romantic film remake made by RKO. It was directed by George Stevens and produced by Pandro S. Berman from a screenplay by Dorothy Yost, Mortimer Offner adapted by Jane Murfin from the novel, Alice Adams, by Booth Tarkington. The music score was by Max Steiner and Roy Webb, and the cinematography by Robert De Grasse.

The film starred Katharine Hepburn as Alice Adams with Fred MacMurray, Fred Stone, Evelyn Venable, Frank Albertson, Ann Shoemaker, Hedda Hopper and Hattie McDaniel.


Alice Adams (Katharine Hepburn) is the daughter of a family of modest means but she dreams of making her way in society and being accepted by the "better people." She meets the well-to-do Arthur Russell (Fred MacMurray) at a social gathering; he is charmed by her attempts at putting on airs and accepts her invitation to dine at the Adams' home. The meal is a disaster: Alice's parents (Fred Stone and Anne Shoemaker) are obviously way out of Russell's league, while the servant (Hattie McDaniel) hired for the occasion shows up very surly.


Academy Awards nominations

The film was nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Picture and for Best Actress (Katharine Hepburn).
