My, but she was yar

Katherine Hepburn, ingenue of the 30s and 40s, matriarch of the 60s, and elder of the 80s, dead at 96.

For someone whose first encounter with Katherine Hepburn was "On Golden Pond," "The Philadelphia Story" was a revelation, as was "Bringing Up Baby." And God knows that we could all aspire to be Tracy and Hepburn -- even in "Adam's Rib," which most explicitly presented the possibility of infidelity, their love was palpable. I have married friends that still call each other "Pinky" because of that movie.

So let's all agree to ignore "Dragon Seed" and honor her today by being witty and bold.
