Reviews - What do customers think about LIFE: Katharine Hepburn Commemorative?
It's spelled KathArine Hepburn Aug 17, 2003
As for the book, if you have John Bryson's book, The Private World of Katharine Hepburn, there is no reason to buy this one. The Bryson book is far better than the Life book. Other than the Bryson pictures, the selection of pictures in the Life book is amazingly unbalanced. The book spends an inordinate amount of space on pictures from her RKO years which in many cases produced very mediocre films. It virtually ignores Spencer Tracy and the many fine films she made with him at MGM. But not to worry. There are two entire pages devoted to The Iron Pettiocoat; the worst film Hepburn ever made. The book then veers off into the Bryson stuff. I can only assume that the picture selections for the book were done by a nineteen year old intern. Certainly no one with any appreciation for Hepburn or her career could have selected these pictures.
