We never saw this documentary when it came out. In a tribute to Katherine Hepburn, TCM showed it, as part of the daily festivity. Director David Heeley, who also co-wrote the material with Ms. Hepburn, clearly demonstrate an impeccable taste in what he carefully picked to show us.
Katherine Hepburn was a woman ahead of her times. She had a sense of self and her own style, something that came to her naturally. Ms. Hepburn was an actress who knew what seemed to suit her talent as we witness in all the movies she graced with her presence.
We are given clips from her films, as well as a tour of her Connecticut home and her surroundings. Also, in the documentary, we see some comments by her peers that speak volumes as to what extent she was admired by the people that came in contact with her. And, yes, she was opinionated, and didn't care to express her views, as she stuck by her principles.
Yes, it certainly was a privileged life.
