Katherine Hepburn, the famously gravel voiced, feisty and stylish actress, died last night at the age of 96.(The Guardian)
Her biographer, Christopher Andersen, said: "She is the person who put women in pants, literally and figuratively. She is the greatest star, the greatest actress, that Hollywood has ever produced. She really was the the last of that breed of Hollywood royalty. And she was by far the greatest."
Some KH quotations:
Acting is the most minor of gifts and not a very high-class way to earn a living. After all, Shirley Temple could do it at the age of four.
If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.
