Katharine Hepburn, A Personal Biography

  • customer reviews
• The private Hepburn in her own words: Katharine Hepburn draws on a series of interviews Chandler conducted with the actress during the 1970s and 1980s. Chandler also interviewed director George Cukor; Hepburn co-stars Cary Grant and James Stewart; and Laurence Olivier, Ginger Rogers, and other screen luminaries. .

• A Hollywood icon unveiled: Notoriously guarded, Katharine Hepburn talks candidly with Chandler about her marriage, her long affair with Spencer Tracy, co-stars and movies, and the seminal event in her life—the suicide of her brother, whom she adored, when they were both in their teens. With her unprecedented access to Hepburn, Chandler has written a biography completely different from all others, including Hepburn’s own guarded book about herself. .
