forethought: Katherine Hepburn will be missed

Katherine Houghton Hepburn, died Sunday, June 29, 2003 at her home in Old Saybrook, CT.

She one the most decorated actresses in the industry. Until this year she held the record for the most Academy Award nominations.

Her credits included: “On Golden Pond” in 1981, “Lion in Winter” in 1968, and “African Queen” in 1951, co-starring with Humphrey Bogart.

The following quote typifies Hepburn’s life as well as her acting career:

“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.”
