Hi guys... I have been checking out Google books where you can read many books online...not the whole book but pretty much a lot...anyway...I was checking for Kate books and I found some pretty neat books I hadn't heard of...one of them was "Turtle Bay" it's the story of Kate's neighborhood with interviews of people who lived/live there...one of the interviews was from Stephen Sondheim...anyway here is part of his story/quote:
"Sondheim's new house was directly to the east of Katharine Hepburn's longtime home. Did he know he was buying next door to Hepburn? Well if he didn't, he soon found out. "One night before the sale closed, I took some friends over to look at the house," says Sondheim. "We walked out into the central garden, turned around and looked up, and there facing us through the window was Katharine Hepburn...and at that moment a pair of big broad arms reached around to embrace her...unmistakably Spencer Tracy" he recalls
WOWWWWWW!!!!!! Can u just imagine...this was sometime in 1960.

I know right... ;D that was so amazing reading that...I have no reason to not believe him...I mean he was just casually showing the house off to some friends and looked up into the window and there she was standing...
The site is under the google search group such as images, shopping etc...it's google books just type in her name or Spencer's or whoever and click search...some books only have a snippet view...but, u can search by whole book preview...there are other books I looked at...like one by Sylvia Browne...the celebrity psychic...even though I tend not to believe stuff like that...who knows really...she says in her book that Spence didn't "leave" Kate for many years...and they were reunited after her death maybe I'll post that one too
O M G-a I am speechless! I am without speech! (I think that is quoted from a movie but I can't even remember which one I am that speechless). This is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO exciting to hear! Thank you Court for sharing that with us! Just goes to show it pays off to be an avid reader!
Judy: All has changed on the Proboard....Not sure my reply got posted. Anyway, thanks for the notice, Evelien. I'm unable to access it. I can watch the clip of the woman flipping through the Kate books and talking about fashion - one of which is Rebel Chic :-)

CFK: So we all heard about Betty Bacall, I guess? Pretty rotten news, especially following so closely on Robin Williams. What a lousy week. Watched To Have and Have Not as tribute tonight.

Fran: I think the problem with actresses such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford was that they played SEX SYMBOLS and did woman movies. They were sexy in their day and were the main love interests in the movie. When they got older those woman type movies were dead

Fran: Bette Davis made very different movies from Katherine Hepburn Hepburn. Bette was sexy. So was Crawford. They made woman type movies. Hepburn was the masculine feminist. When their looks went, so did their careers. Hepburn was never that type.

Angela: Personally, I like Bette Davis best she was "a woman for all season" she didn't mince words she did the role without having to apologize for creativity she musters to do the work. Also, she could look different without worrying about her appearance.

Angela: Personally, I felt Bette Davis was the "woman for all seasons" since she used all her creativity to make her artwork. As for Katherine she seems to sound the same - her voice didn't change. Granted she was good in Shakespeare which I give credit.

SJS: Bette had a mostly latent tendency to ham, and she admitted it. She really appreciated a director who could get her to tone it down. She lost respect for a director who would let her get away with it. But she took chances that most actresses wouldn't.
