Sylvia Scarlett. 1935. USA. Directed by George Cukor. 95 min.
“I won’t be a girl, I won’t be weak and silly. I’ll be a boy, rough and hard!,” Katharine Hepburn cries as she chops her waist-long braids into a handsome butch coiffure, transforming from Sylvia to “Sylvester” before setting off to travel abroad with her criminal father.
