Born On This Day — July 7, 1899

George Cukor directing Douglass Montgomery and Katharine Hepburn in Little Women (1933)

…you direct a couple of successful pictures with women stars, so you become a ‘woman’s director’…Direct a sentimental little picture and all you get is sob stuff. I know I’ve been in and out of those little compartments. Heaven knows everyone has limitations. But why make them narrower than they are?

George Cukor
