Katharine Houghton Hepburn

Born May 12, 1907; Died June 29, 2003

Hepburn's career in Hollywood lasted more than 60 years. During that time, Hepburn received four Academy Awards for Best Actress, the standing record for any performer.

Her career started with plaudits (Great reviews for Bill of Divorcement in 1932, and then winning an Academy Award for Morning Glory in 1934) and then proceeded into "Hollywood Poison" territory with a string of films that bombed at the boxoffice. She groomed her own "come-back" plan with stage work for The Philadelphia Story, and owned the cinematic rights that resulted in the Hollywood movie of 1940 in which she starred with Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant.

Famous for her nine films with Spencer Tracy. She worked in just about every genre, though not science fiction (but an argument can be made for the horror with the crazy gothic trappings of Suddenly Last Summer, her 1958 film from Tennessee Williams' play).

She was a durable actress and kept going well into the 1990s.
