Hepburn Looking So Young

Hey folks,

This was the earliest film I ever saw with Hepburn who was about 25 or 26 at the time. Her looks in 1940's The Philadelphia Story seemed to be the one that stayed with me the most until she seemed to suddenly morph into her middle age look of the late 1950s.

I am not suggesting she was not beautiful at any age. I always appreciated her looks and charm throughout her career, and I still thought her Ethel Thayer in On Golden Pond was beautiful even though she was about 78 at the time. Having enjoyed Hepburn's 1940s looks for so long, I was simply taken aback when I saw her in this film and in her mid 20s. When she first appeared in the film, she seemed so strikingly young to me, and it was fun to watch her at this age.

Best wishes,
Dave Wile
