Katharine Hepburn
By Mike Rappaport

A nice tribute last night at the Academy Awards to the late Katharine Hepburn. My three favorite of her movies were Philadelphia Story, A Lion in Winter, and Guess Whose Coming to Dinner, the last two for which she won Oscars. (She also won two other Oscars.) All three of those movies are great, but Lion in Winter is a bit neglected. Its diologue is especially clever and funny. If you haven't seen it, be sure to rent it.
