So correct, Hollywood does not make movie stars as they used to

Kath in her senior play at Bryn Mawr alas cannot recall the name, but her father commented that he could see her accumulating freckles throughout the whole performance!
Hep was not in favor of her being an actress...

Her zest for life is evident in her athletic pursuits. She seemed to embrace life without any reservations. Pictured in Conneticut, 1938. Flickr, thefoxling's

Family photo which I think this was taken after her home in Connecticut was destroyed by the 1938 New England Hurricane. Considering she lost practically everything she owned, she looks very happy

Yes, well I think the Hepburns were raised not attached to THINGS so much-they were really self reliant and had strong personalities. She did dig up a lot of the family's fine silver.

It's not Hollywood that makes the stars though,never has been. Those who really have succeeded in the past and made "icon" status are those with distinct characters,personalities, really different and individual to start with. That's the case of so many, like Audrey and Katharine Hepburn,Greta Garbo,Ingrid Bergman, Bogart,Cary Grant,Vivien Leigh,Clark Gable, on and on!
