A Film Great

On this day in 2003, Katherine Hepburn left us at the wonderful age of 96.  She left us physically but left us with a golden legacy!  When she died, the lights on Broadway were dimmed for an hour to mark the passing of one of entertainment’s brightest stars.

In 1999, the American Film Institute named Hepburn as the greatest female actress in the history of American cinema.

Your Two Chums had occasion to watch “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” again recently and, oh, what an amazing film it is.  Katherine Hepburn is her usual amazing self and Sidney Poitier is his wonderful self.  Spencer Tracy plays Katherine Hepburn’s husband, whilst in real life they had been living together for years as a couple.

Tracy died very shortly after the making of the film.  The acting is superb and certainly has a lot of good in it about working things out.

We highly recommend another watch of that great flick!

Abundance, for sure!

    I don’t know about “abundance” as the lesson in that 1967 film so much as the lesson of TOLERANCE. It was the beginning of opening our thought to be more inclusive of everyone.

    She has been my favorite actress all my life. What a wonderful catalog of films she left us. At my Occidental College 51st reunion last weekend they had a video with snippets of movies located on the campus. One of them was Pat and Mike. There was that luminous face and physical agility. She always looked so intelligent, alive and “present”.

      That is it exactly Lara…Intelligent, alive and “present” absolutely describes the great Miss Hepburn to a tee 🙂
