A strange flower, suitable to any occasion
The only three Katharine Hepburn films I remember seeing are Stage Door (mentioned by Laura), Bringing Up Baby (which I saw for a film class back at U of I) and, naturally, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Not sure how I managed to avoid seeing African Queen, and I think I saw Philadelphia Story, but don't remember a thing about it.
But I do remember an NPR story about Kate Mulgrew portraying "Katherine [sic] Hepburn" from slightly over a year ago. Weird.
Nothing remotely profound to say about her passing, I'm afraid. She was a great actress (despite what Dorothy Parker might have said at one point), seemed like a wonderful person, and she'll be missed.
From George, a link to Katharine Houghton discussing her aunt. Guess I could look through the Margaret Sanger Papers Project to find the letter mentioned in the interview, but I couldn't even find a decent link for the Parker quote. . .
