Our famous K is:

Katharine Hepburn (1907-2003)




Quick Facts:

Born to progressive parents who
felt their children could do any-
thing they chose to do.

She was a tomboy as a young
child, liked to call herself
"Jimmy" and cut her hair short.

Later in life she became an
American actress.

She was a leading lady in 60 +
years.

Some of her films included:

The African Queen

On Golden Pond

Known for her fierce personality
and eccentric ways.
Also for being outspoken and
assertive. She wore trousers
before it was "fashionable" for
women to do so.

She was a very private person
but enjoyed her fame.

Her final appearance on the
screen came at the age of 87,

  1. She was quite the rebel wearing trousers and defying societal norms, but I sure enjoyed her movies. Especially those with Spencer Tracey and Humphrey Bogart.

  2. She's from Hartford and her family had a home at the Connecticut shore. Passed by the area last summer. Agree with you on the challenge. This isn't going as well for me.
