Personal Quote:

While on a picnic together John asked Kate Hepburn why they shared such a close relationship, she said 'Don't analyze it, analysis requires a breaking apart and we certainly don't want that'


John and Katharine Hepburn worked side by side on her final four films, The Man Upstairs, This Can't Be Love, Love Affair, and her final film One Christmas. See more »
