Hello very enthusiastic person. I have both interviews but I know they are in parts on Youtube. I would upload them myself but they would get deleted no doubt. The first one is on dvd.
Next, I hate lists and my favs vary month to month but right now: The Philadelphia Story, The Lion in Winter, Summertime(probably personal favs tho)
Tracy Lord will be my forever favorite since that is the film that got me interested in Kate. But it’s a tie with Jane Hudson, again personal reasons. I guess I wouldn’t mind meeting either.

The dress that Katharine Hepburn wears in The Glass Menagerie is actually the same one she wore for the 1939 stage version of The Philadelphia Story. Designed by Valentina, Tracy Lord’s wedding dress was an elaborate affair – pink silk organza, chiffon and crepe de chine, a fusion of modern and romantic elements – and personified a contemporary Southern socialite. Hepburn saved the dress in her personal collection, and bought it out of retirement in 1973, adding a corsage and a neckpiece. Because the actress had retained her slim figure, the waist only had to be let out slightly.

Read Kate’s autobiographies Me and The Making of the African Queen. I don’t really like any biographies for her sadly. I can tell you to NOT read the one by William J. Mann because it’s trash. Rebel Chic is good but its about fashion, The Private World of Katharine Hepburn is a fav but thats a photo book really. Kate Remembered and An Affair to Remember are only so-so and have inaccuracies. I would also recommend the newish Spencer Tracy book by James Curtis.
