Katharine Hepburn: "Show me a actress who isn't a personality and you'll show me a woman who isn't a star!"
Katharine Hepburn had a charming charisma that radiated her own unique persona throughout her life that was irresistible, high spirited, and defined her special presence as a trail blazing independent women and one of the true super stars of all times.
Author Ronald Bergan's timing was perfect as he was the only person to whom Ms. Hepburn gave her "personal blessings" to write this wonderful book, Katharine Hepburn - An Independent Woman.
So many previous biographies had not been accurate and Ms.Hepburn was quite angry. She "allowed" Ronald Bergan into her apartment in New York City, to set the record straight and write this book! Mr. Bergan described her reflections, "perceptive" and penetrating"..."These are not the sound bites of a Hollywood celebrity but of an aging beauty re-examinig her past with a critical eye."
This is a beautiful book with stunning photographs of Katharine Hepburn in various stages of her life,"on and off the set", along with some of her phenomenal vivacious full color "Head Shots." Most of these are "full page" pictures, and truly treasures to behold!
Ms.Hepburn was way ahead of her time, and in Mr.Bergan's book you'll be able to capture the essence of her many diversions from the composed "Katharine Hepburn", but through it all you'll see that Katharine Hepburn "always remained her own woman!"
This amazingly well written book will capture your attention as it wisks away all the "mythological perceptions" of the "starlet", and "unveils the real woman!"
