Undercurrent 1946

January 1, 2012

Undercurrent is Katharine Hepburn‘s 21st Film. It is a drama that borders on a Thriller. This is not her normal type of film. It is the only film she did with Robert Taylor.
Plot: Alan Garroway (Taylor) comes to the Hamilton home to visit Professor Hamilton (Edmund Gwenn best known for is role as Santa Claus in Miracle on 34th Street). He falls in love with his daughter, Ann (Hepburn). After they are married, Ann, finds out that Alan has a brother that he not only doesn’t want to talk about but when the subject comes up he flies into a rage. All the secrecy causes Ann to do more and more research which puts her life in danger.
This movie is also one of my favorite Katharine Hepburn movies. It is based on the book “You Were There” by Thelma Strabel. I have found a number of books online by Thelma but I haven’t been able to find a single copy of “You Were There.” I would highly recommend it to all. Watch the trailer here.
