I'd read a biography of Katherine Hepburn. She was an interesting woman - absolutely independent, yet not a battle-axe in the Bette Davis sense. Even as actresses go, she was distinct. There are no Katherine Hepburn clones.
On this day in Katharine Hepburn, who due to her performances in such films as "The Philadelphia Story" and "On Golden Pond," will become one of the most celebrated actresses of the century, is born in Hartford, Conn. Happy Birthday to a screen legend!
