Katharine Hepburn (1907–2003) is considered to be one of the greatest actresses in Hollywood history. Over the course of her six-decade career, she won a total of four Academy Awards for Best Actress.From School Library Journal:
YA-- Katherine Hepburn is, at 84, still the positive, feisty, upper-class lady she portrayed in The Philadelphia Story . Her autobiography, clearly not ghostwritten, tells some stories of her life but not all--she comes from a class that didn't let it all hang out. Her 27-year affair with Spencer Tracy is discussed with fond memories (the years together were to her ``absolute bliss'')--the idea that it was scandalous at the time doesn't seem to cross her mind, and she is surprised to find that Tracy's wife thought the affair was only a rumor. She seems to remember almost everyone fondly--her wonderful parents; her loving, supportive husband, whom she admits she treated badly; the numerous beaus, directors, and fellow actors with whom she worked. More than 160 black-and-white photos lend credibility to her enduring beauty, but it's the somewhat breathless, positive prose that makes Hepburn come alive as herself or as she wishes to be seen--an uncomplaining, stalwart, lucky, admired, and ``classy'' lady. --Diana C. Hirsch, Prince George's County Memorial Library System, MD
