On This Day, May 12

On this day in 1907, Katharine Hepburn, who due to her performances in such films as The Philadelphia Story and On Golden Pond, will become one of the most celebrated actresses of the 20th century, is born in Hartford, Connecticut.  Hepburn appeared in a range of genres, from screwball comedy to literary drama. She received four Academy Awards for Best Actress—a record for any performer. In 1999, Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema. She passed away on June 29, 2003 at the age of 96. Find Baby at the library and on hoopla.
