Good night, Sweet Eleanor, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest:

Somehow, I can't help but think that Katharine Hepburn made more of a contribution to the progression of the planet in her 96 years than Strom Thurmond managed to prevent in his even hundred.


Eleanor of Aquitaine: What would you have me do? Give out? Give up? Give in?
Henry II, King of England: Give me a little peace.
Eleanor of Aquitaine: A little? Why so modest? How about eternal peace? Now there's a thought.

I really loved that woman. I remember the first movie I ever saw her in, with Spencer, of course. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. I thought: that's the strongest, most intelligent and independent woman I've ever seen. And she's beautiful too! I was like nine years old and I watched everything she was in after that. Then I realised that in real life, she was all those things and more.

I cried when Gene Kelly died and I cried for Fred Astaire - I'm not ashamed to admit I cried for Katherine either. They woke my brain up, you know?

I can't help feeling like precious few celebrities that we see on film today are even capable of that anymore. Far less politicians.
