Hepburn, Katharine
Katharine Hepburn Signed Photograph.
Rare large format silver gelatin print of Katharine Hepburn on the set of the 1969 Broadway musical Coco. Inscribed by her, "David, affectionately, Kate." The recipient, David Eichler, was a close friend of Hepburn's with who she corresponded for nearly sixty years. In fine condition. The photograph measures 13 inches by 10 inches. Matted, the entire piece measures 18.5 inches by 15.5 inches. From December 1969 to August 1970, Hepburn starred in the Broadway musical Coco, about the life of Coco Chanel. She admitted that before the show, she had never sat through a theatrical musical. She was not a strong singer, but found the offer irresistible and, as Berg puts it, "what she lacked in euphony she made up for in guts". Reviews for the production were mediocre, but Hepburn herself was praised, and Coco was popular with the public--with its run twice extended. Her work earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
