By the time of her death in 2003 at the age of 96, Katherine Hepburn had long been an American institution. The following year, Cate Blanchett's striking depiction of Hepburn's eccentricity in The Aviator reminded audiences of the sheer complexity of the woman.
William Mann charts the journey by which Kathy Hepburn of Hartford, Connecticut, became the star known simply as 'Kate', dazzling audiences for fifty years in the company of such luminaries as Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and, most memorably, Spencer Tracy, with whom she made nine movies and conducted a long off-screen romance.
Hepburn won her fourth Oscar aged 74 and made her swansong movie at 87. Across seventy years in the public eye, she was a cut above the usual screen queen. Now William Mann looks beyond the legend to consider apart the life and the persona of Katharine Hepburn, from her movies, her loves, her bisexuality and her extraordinary life in the golden age of film-making.
Críticas: "A page-turner and a revelation."--"USA Today" "Not just the best on Hepburn--it's a book that sets new standards in movie biography."--"The New York Observer" "While previous biographers may have added more embroidery to the accepted story of Hepburn's life, Mann pretty much blows everything out of the water."--"San Francisco Chronicle" "Mann handles the material with clear-eyed equanimity. . . . A corrective to the hagiography that has often been passed as her personal history."--"The Washington Post" "Certain to stand tall as the definitive biography of Hepburn."--"The Sunday Times" (London)
