Legendary actress Katharine Hepburn dies
 
(CNN) -- Screen and stage legend Katharine Hepburn has died, according to Old Saybrook, Connecticut police. She was 96.

Hepburn's film career spanned seven decades, and she was perhaps the most decorated actor, male or female, in the industry. She won more Academy Awards for lead roles (four) than anyone -- and her 12 nominations in the best actress category also was a record.

In her work, she transformed herself from the key actress of a generation into thespian royalty, an uncontested icon of live theater and cinematic art. In private life, her 25-year love affair with actor Spencer Tracy is the stuff of Hollywood legend, and so are her bouts with Hollywood itself.

But her performances in some of the century's top films are what stand out as enduring evidence of her power and gifts. The American Film Institute ranked Hepburn the top female star in its "50 Greatest Movie Legends," one of a handful of AFI picks that ruffled few feathers.

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

Name link. If GT's allowed to write about "Finnegus" in Gregory Peck's RIP thread I can write about Roman Holiday.

I say, whatever gets you to watch "Roman Holiday" is reason enough. That's a great movie. Enjoy, Bon.

yeah watch that for Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, and then watch The Philadelphia Story and Bringing Up Baby for Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart.   :-D

PS. Vader strikes again!  this is reaching epidemic proportions. :shock:
