First Gregory Peck and now Kate Hepburn.

I remember seeing her at ABT a few times and seem to recall reading she influenced someone at the Australian Ballet (but I can't remember who)

For those in NY, it's only one for 2 more weeks, but the off-Broadway show "Tea at Five" with Kate Mulgrew playing Ms. Hepburn is fantastic. The resemblence is uncanny.
And I will be always be thankful for the acceptance Hepburn brought to wearing pants!

I'm so sad to have lost these two. Here is a link to the NY Times' obituary about Katharine Hepbun.

I remember reading in the old Life magazine that Hepburn said that she just wanted to be remembered as a "good old broad".

Here's to a GREAT old broad! One helluva run, Kate!

No, not sad. We should all live to 96 as well as she did.

True. I recall reading that her health has been poor of late, so while it is a loss for us I hope it was a graceful release for her.

There is a nice appreciation of Ms. Hepburn in this week's NEW YORKER. Accompanying the text are 2 portraits of her taken by Richard Avedon (circa 1950's). In one of them she resembles Martha Graham.

My favorite actress of all time. She will be missed.
