12 May 1907. American actress Katharine Houghton Hepburn was born at Hartford, CT. Nominated for 12 Oscars over the course of her career, she won four times: for 1933’ s Morning Glory, 1967’ s Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, 1968’ s The Lion in Winter and 1981’ s On Golden Pond. She is best remembered for her on- and offscreen pairing with Spencer Tracy. Together, they made nine films, including Adam’s Rib and Woman of the Year, and enjoyed a 27-year personal relationship. There is often confusion regarding her date of birth: in her 1991 autobiography, Me: Stories of My Life, she confirmed the May date and admitted often giving out a late brother’s birth date as her own. She died at Old Saybrook, CT, 29 June 2003.
