Autograph letter signed
1968 - HEPBURN, Katharine. Autograph letter signed. [France]: June 7th [1968]. One page of cream "Katherine Houghton Hepburn" letterhead, measuring 8-1/4 by 10-1/4 inches. $5000.Fine autograph letter signed from Katharine Hepburn to her friend Meta Stern, penned just two days after Robert Kennedy's assassination, anguishing over the tragedy, and mentioning Spencer Tracy.Autograph letter signed "K""", dated June 7th [1968], no place but while filming "Madwoman of Chaillot" in France, on "Katharine Houghton Hepburn" personal stationery. The letter is written to "Meta," her friend Meta Stern, a script supervisor who worked with Hepburn while making "Mary of Scotland" in 1936. The letter reads in full: "Dear Meta "" No mail since May 17th. What a ghastly incredible mess "" one's brain trembles at enormity of it "" you & Sam must have been torn apart "" such a ghastly waste "" so full of hope & vision "" one feels that all the catering to the wayward & the slothful & the squeaking wheels in our present philosophy is showing itself a sad mistake. We are working again "" will go to Paris for a few days Thurs Fri Sat Sun "" then back here & finish God willing. Mrs. T. (Spencer Tracy's wife) turned down me in the T.V. said she'd like to do it but without me narrating "" just in it briefly as his costar "" writing soon "" K "" Love to Sam & Murph." Although Hepburn and Spencer Tracy were well known as both a professional and romantic couple, Tracy never divorced his wife because of their Catholic faith; after his death in 1967 (a year before this letter), Hepburn famously was not present at his funeral. Fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
