Hepburn/Hope Movie To Get Airing On TCM

I’m nursing a hideous cough/cold this week, so I am desperately searching for Reasons To Live. I’m in luck. Lou Lumenick reports, “One of the highest profile classic movies that’s never been shown on U.S. television, much less released on video here — “The Iron Petticoat” (1956), a Cold War comedy starring the unlikely team of Bob Hope and Katharine Hepburn — will finally be making its premiere on Turner Classic Movies in September.” Ben Hecht’s script was reportedly written for Cary Grant and Hepburn, who had made four previous films together. After Grant passed for unknown reasons, the role was taken up by Hope.
