Katharine Hepburn
(1907-2003)

At first, established theater actress Katharine Hepburn may have been reluctant to star in Hollywood films, but her transition from stage to screen proved to be one of the most important moments for women in film. No one has surpassed the poise and versatily that Hepburn showed throughout her career. Her skill can most notably be seen in comedies like Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story and Woman of the Year, in which the actress is both a model of a strong, serious woman and a performer with tremendous comic timing.
