Critic Reviews for Quality Street
The excellent costumes and photography, and a superb rendering of gardens in London are far better than the story or the acting.
Given the cast and the director, this is very disappointing.
Audience Reviews for Quality Street
Silly light drama with Kate in a dual role. She's unusually skittish in both, not one of her better performances. Although she's surrounded by some of the best actors working at the time this is a minor film, which would have benefited had it been shot in color. A flop on its release this is one of the films that landed Hepburn on the box office poison list and hastened her flight to the stage for a few years.
This film considered to be one of the worst films Katharine Hepburn ever made, and even she herself disliked it by describing it as being "no good" in her autobiography. Quality Street is a peculiar film in Katharine Hepburn's filmography, but I really enjoyed this quirky and strange romantic comedy. While the script is somewhat of a mess, the cast keeps the film lively, especially Hepburn who embraces the goofy moments gleefully. It's also surprisingly funny since I laughed quite a few times while watching it. Overall, I think it is a very underrated and very enjoyable romantic comedy. It's much better than what people give it credit for.
Quality Street (1937) -- [6.0] -- Katharine Hepburn stars in this costume romantic comedy that hinges on a case of mistaken identity. Cliches abound, but a charming cast comes in for the save. The first half is better than the last, especially when timid teacher Fay Bainter must punish an unruly student, and when prim-and-proper Estelle Winwood reacts to an unseemly "winker."
