A bumper box set of classic films featuring, 'The First Lady of Cinema', Katherine Hepburn!

State Of The Union (Dir. Frank Capra, 1948): The Flamboyant businessman, Grant Matthews (Spencer Tracy), is persuaded by his mistress, the powerful publishing heiress Kay Thorndyke (Angela Lansbury), to seek the Republican nomination in the forthcoming elections. Mary Matthews (Katharine Hepburn), joins her estranged husband to present a public portrait of a happy family for the voters. With the aid of the conniving political boss Jim Conover (Adolphe Menjou), Grant begins the long road to the White House...

Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (Dir. Stanley Kramer, 1967): Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn (who won the Academy Award as Best Actress for her performance) are unforgettable as perplexed parents in this landmark 1967 movie about mixed marriage. Joanna (Katharine Houghton), the beautiful daughter of a crusading publisher Matthew Drayton (Tracy), and his patrician wife Christina (Hepburn), returns home with her new fiancee, John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), a distinguished black doctor. Christina accepts her daughter's decision to marry John, but Matthew is shocked by this interracial union; and the doctor's parents are equally dismayed. Both families must sit down face to face and examine each other's level of intolerance.

Suddenly Last Summer (Dir. Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1959): Elizabeth Taylor and Katharine Hepburn each received Oscar nominations for best actress in this gripping adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play filmed at Shepperton Studios by director Joseph L. Mankiewicz.

Catherine Holly (Taylor) is committed to a mental institution after witnessing the strange and horrible death of her cousin. Catherine's aunt, Violet Venable (Hepburn) tries to influence Dr Cukrowicz (Montgomery Clift), a young neurosurgeon, to surgically end Catherine's haunting hallucinations. By utilising injections of Sodium Pentothal, Dr Cukrowicz discovers that Catherine's delusions are in fact true. He then must confront Violet about her own involvement in her son's lurid death...

Bringing Up Baby (Dir. Howard Hawks, 1938): A dog belonging to an eccentric heiress (Hepburn) steals a dinosaur bone from David (Grant), an absent-minded Zoology professor. David follows the heiress to her home and all hell breaks loose when he loses his pet leopard known as 'Baby'.

Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn give fantastic performances in one of Hollywood's finest screwball comedies, superbly directed by Howard Hawks.

Rooster Cogburn (Dir. Stuart Millar, 1975): Two of the most popular stars in screen history are brought together for the first time in the follow up to True Grit. The film returns John Wayne to the role of the rapscallion, eye patched, whiskey guzzling Deputy Marshall that won him an Academy Award. Katharine Hepburn is prim Eula Goodnight, a Bible thumping missionary who teams up with the gun fighter to avenge the death of her father. While in pursuit of the outlaws, a warm rapport develops between the rough n' tumble lawman and the flirty reverend's daughter.

Holiday (Dir. George Cukor, 1938): An iconoclastic young man (Cary Grant), who's engaged to a snooty heiress (Doris Nolan), discovers he's really in love with his fiancée's down-to-earth sister (Katharine Hepburn), in director George Cukor's stylish comedy...
