Katharine Hepburn[edit]

I've done quite a bit of work expanding and massaging this article on a quite interesting person. I think it's a great subject for a FAC, but would like some input on how it reads now. Thanks in advance! · Katefan0(scribble) 22:15, Jun 24, 2005 (UTC)

It looks good. The content itself is fairly comprehensive and well written, but some tweaking is still needed to get the article to FA quality. The most important thing is that the images need to be rearranged. Several are much too large and the ==Later Film Career== section is almost illegible on a lower screen resolution. The sections are also oddly arranged. Her entire career is presented as a subsection of ==Hepburn's acting career begins== and the ==Film== section doesn't give much of a description as a number of other sections are on her film roles. Thirdly to be a FA the lead should really be more than one paragraph. - SimonP 00:14, Jun 25, 2005 (UTC)
Simon, thanks so much for your comments! I agree with them. I'm not too terribly adept at working with images, but will fool with them a bit this weekend. Thanks again, I hope you won't mind if I ask you to take a look at the changes once they're done. Best · Katefan0(scribble) 13:29, Jun 25, 2005 (UTC)
I also think it looks good. I agree that the photos need to be resized, rearranged etc. Not all have source info, and I think that is essential. There are some minor touches of POV. In the opening - "screen legend" - yes she is of course, but that needs to be conveyed in more neutral language. Also I think singling out "The African Queen" and describing it as perhaps her best known role plus also making a section out of that film, and no other, is also highly POV. It's not that I disagree with the choice, but a fan of "The Philadelphia Story" might want a section on that one, then someone that likes "Bringing Up Baby" might want a section on that one... and where would it end? The article has improved by about a million percent since I last looked at it months and months ago. Congratulations, a bit of tweaking here and there and it'll be ready.

Thanks for the encouragement! Hmm, yes, I see what you're saying; I'll have to think about how to massage that content. As an aside, I'd also like to stub all the redlinks before I submit it to FAC -- I've done a fair few already, but with so many films (and especially her earlier theater work for which there is less information), there's quite a bit to do. · Katefan0(scribble) 16:23, Jun 25, 2005 (UTC)
