Although, personally, we have never joined up with those vast cohorts who cross themselves and start to gibber at the very sound of the name of Hepburn, we must in all fairness admit that [Spitfire] contains some of the finest work she has ever done.

Audience Reviews for Spitfire

I really enjoyed this movie. Hepburn plays an aggressive, although unintelligent, country girl. The story is really interesting and her character is cool. Some people have said they don't like this movie, but don't listen to them, see it for yourself.
