those HEPBURN gals

Although not related in any way, shape, or form, the Actresses HEPBURN have always been amongst my favorites ... forever, I've idolized Katherine; and in the last 10 years, Audrey has joined her on my Top Five Actresses List.

Katherine, with her love Spencer Tracy (above, left) - Audrey spans 3 decades

The depth and breadth of their abilities, and of their beauty, is almost beyond words.

Some of my favorite KH movies include THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, ON GOLDEN POND, GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, BRINGING UP BABY, and WOMAN OF THE YEAR

THANKS TO MY FRIEND ANN, I just learned of something exciting ... visit this link to find out all about the Katherine Hepburn Theater, opening in Summer 2009:

in my humble opinion, Audrey rocked any & everything she ever wore

Some of my favorite Audrey Hepburn movies are SABRINA, ROMAN HOLIDAY, FUNNY FACE, and BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S


I have forever admired this particular "look" of Kate's ...


"I'm a personality as well as an actress. Show me an actress who isn’t a personality, and you’ll show me a woman who isn’t a star".
- Katharine Hepburn


many beautiful women starred opposite Cary Grant ... but few had the magical chemistry that Kate shared with Cary in THE PHILADELPHIA STORY


If Hollywood had its own Mount Rushmore, Cary Grant's profile would be the most prominent: the hair that Katharine Hepburn mussed in Bringing Up Baby (1938), the eyes that Eva Marie Saint couldn't quite meet in North by Northwest (1959), the lips that locked so breathtakingly with Ingrid Bergman's in Notorious (1946), and, of course, the cleft chin that fascinated Audrey Hepburn in Charade (1963).

That's it for my morning musings on Katherine & Audrey ... two lovely ladies, inside & out.
