Katharine Hepburn was a smart, bold, brassy and fearless woman. She swam in the Long Island Sound daily, even in the winter. When a hurricane swept her family home away, she combed the beach the next morning, panning for her mother's silver, as if the situation was a spoiled picnic. When she was labeled "Box Office Poison," she kept on acting.
