    Another icon of the white screen. We are going to miss them.
    Not all her movies, but many of them belong to my favourites. Several are on DVD already, it's amazing how we can hold on to images of those great actors and actresses at their various ages. And be able to remember them as if they were timeless.

    May she rest in peace.

    Damn, it's been a rough year on screen legends. She was always one of my favorites and she will be missed by all film lovers.

    [​IMG] This woman was a true original and a class act. She lit up the screen in every film she did. I'm not sure it's enough to say she'll be missed.

    Arggg, and I just watched Bringing Up Baby this morning before hearing about this. How cruel, irony. [​IMG]

    Here's another link. I think I'm going to watch "The Lion in Winter" tonight for a film tribute to her.

    A sad farewell, dear Kate. There will never, ever be another as splendid, as unique as you.
    Hollywood in the last decades has devolved into juvenile-oriented mediocrity. The sophisticated, mature, literate Class you exemplified has vanished. But your legacy will remain to remind us how good things once were.

    [​IMG] R.I.P Katharine.

    I saw a lot of her films this year. She is indeed one of the greatest actresses of all-time.

    It is impossible to overstate her contributions to not only film, but society as well.

    On and off screen she showed an intelligence backed with determination and, yes, attitude, that was a role model for women everywhere.

    While we mourn her passing, I'm glad that she's not suffering anymore. She reportedly had Alzheimers in addition to her Parkinsons.

    Several Bob Hope 100th birthday articles mentioned that he's no longer able to communicate. For someone who spent most of a century making others feel good (most importantly the troops), that's very, very sad.

    We will miss her beautiful smile and remember her for the class and sophistication she brought to Hollywood. Something that we rarely see anymore out of Hollywood.

    One of the last greats from Hollywood's golden age is gone.

    It was just a few weeks ago when Gregory Peck passed, that I was trying to think of who was left and Ms. Hepburn was the first name to hit me.

    She was of a class that I fear Hollywood will never see again. If anything comes of this, maybe we'll more of her films on DVD. It seems that the studios need to wait for someone to die in order to release their films ala Kubrick, Wilder and several others that have escaped my mind at the moment. Where is "Bringing Up Baby", "Holiday", "The African Queen", and so many others?

    R.I.P.

    Too sad, but altogether too expected.
    My sentiments go out to Katherine Houghton (Kate's neice and care-giver).
    A luminous presence whether on screen or on stage, she will be missed.
