--Katharine Hepburn, 1991
The American Film Institute ranked Katharine Hepburn the number one actress on its list of 50 Greatest American Screen Legends. Her filmography begins in the early 1930s and stretches through every remaining decade of the 20th Century. In the later years, her costume designer of choice was the late, great Noel Taylor. Nick Harvill Libraries recently listed a book Hepburn warmly inscribed to him, and a marvelous book it is.
The Private World of Katharine Hepburn records her golden years in photographs, depicting her on the set with John Wayne and Jane Fonda and at her various residences—a New York townhouse, her family home on the Long Island Sound, and her permanent guest cottage at her dear friend George Cukor’s Sunset Strip home.
