Day 5 Colourisation Project – May 12th
Challenge: to publish daily a colourised photo that has some significance around the day of publication.
Acting is the perfect idiot’s profession. So said Katharine Hepburn, the American actress with a career in film, stage and TV spanning almost eight decades! What can you say about my next subject for colourization, Katharine Hepburn that hasn’t already been said?
Born this day, 12th of May in 1907, she was a strong, fiercely independent and unconventional woman for her times. Although these qualities made her an unlikely Hollywood star, she went on to become “The Greatest Actress of all Time” – a title bestowed upon her by the American Film Institute.
Katharine Hepburn passed away in June 2003 at the ripe old age of 96.
