 Stage Door (1937)
Stage Door (1937) is director Gregory La Cava's superb, realistic, behind-the-scenes film about show business, female camaraderie, and the lives of aspiring, tough-talking rival actresses who are looking for a break into show business on the New York theater stage.
The famous lines in the film about "calla lilies" were taken from the unsuccessful 1933 Broadway play The Lake, in which Hepburn had starred (the dialogue became parody material for Hepburn impersonators for the remainder of the star's legendary career).
The adapted film's witty and funny screenplay, with crisp and crackling ensemble pieces, was written by Morrie Ryskind and Anthony Veiller, and was loosely based upon the Broadway stage play of the same name, written by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber.
