30's Hepburn

I thought I'd share a few pics of Katharine Hepburn from A Life in Pictures  (the book is available in my etsy shop). These 1930's film  images are are not the ones that pop up most often when we talk Katharine Hepburn, but aren't they wonderful? I hope you enjoy them, I know I did. The book is packed with high quality images, but these are by far my favorites. I have also enjoyed those that show an aged Katharine. She grew up to be a very beautiful old woman, and that's pretty fantastic. Is it the mark of beauty that comes from within? Or just great bone structure? ...I don't know, but that's another story, another day.

 A Bill of Divorcement, 1932, her first film

Christopher Strong, 1933

Spitfire, 1934

 Break of Hearts, 1935


  1. PS I love her outfit in the first photo! Me wants!

  2. Wow, those are some stunning pictures! You're right, not quite the ones we would always associate with Miss Hepburn - so thanks for sharing them.

    By the way, I've given you a little blog award here:


  3. Thanks Bruce! I'm honored. I'm your new follower, too - loved the Hastings post.

  4. I love her and want to be her one day...(well, I'll never be able to work a pair of pants the way she did! Fine, I"ll just continue to worship...)

  5. Thanks for sharing these! I'm a big katherine fan, both as a great lady and actress! I thought I'd google image-d her thoroughly enough that I'd seen most of them, but these were new to me! These are stunning!

  6. I hadn't seen the first and last pictures before. She's super-cute with those dogs! And it's a stunning pic from BREAK OF HEARTS (even if it was a really rotten movie). I'd love to know what you think of some of the pictures of Hepburn on my blog devoted to The Great KH:
