Spencer Tracy said she was a tough old Yankee horsetrader. George Cukor called her a resolute force of nature. Peter O'Toole claimed to be terrified of her. For decades, Katharine Hepburn has proved to be as electrifying a personality as she is an actress, treasured for her candor and iron-willed integrity as well as her dazzling talent. Now, in this revealing tribute, Hepburn's friends and family - as well as the actress herself - recount the life and times of America's first lady of cinema.

Katharine Hepburn: A Tribute details the patrician beauty's triumphs and sorrows: her carefree bohemian childhood cut short by her older brother's death; her dazzling Broadway debut and subsequent rise to movie stardom; her passionate and combative love affair with Spencer Tracy; her quiet retired life in Connecticut. The star's close friends offer candid takes on Hepburn's often contradictory nature, as well as remarkable insights into little-known details of her personal life. The star herself speaks out about her life and work, in press conferences and illuminating interviews.

This extraordinary presentation includes exclusive, never-before-heard interviews with Hepburn's younger brother, Dr. Robert Hepburn, and John Wayne's oldest son Michael. Those closest to her present rare glimpses of her gentle side: her unfailing generosity toward those close to her, her fierce devotion to Tracy, and her bravery in the face of anguishing loss. A fitting homage to a singular life, Katharine Hepburn: A Tribute salutes one of America's most beloved icons. Download and start listening now!
