Today is Katharine Hepburn’s birthday. And like every year for the past 10 years, I am having a marathon to celebrate. And of course,  I couldn’t let May 12th go by without writing a little something about her here on the Garden. I’ve already talked about several of her movies and the many, many things I love about her, so today I thought I’d do a fun list of 5 things I love about 5 of her movies. Of course, there are many more, but I’ll leave those for next year.

Here they are!
