Acting is the Perfect Idiot’s Profession

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?

Photographer Unknown: Katharine Hepburn ~ Coloured by Loredana Crupi

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.


“Death will be a great relief. No more interviews.”   –Katharine Hepburn
