The time has come! After three years participating in the classic film blogging community with, Margaret Perry is finally ready to host her very own blogathon. What will the topic of this blogathon be, you ask? Who else but my most favorite classic movie star ever, the great Katharine Hepburn herself!

The Great Katharine Hepburn Blogathon will take place over Miss Hepburn’s birthday weekend, May 10-12. Hepburn would have been 107 years old May 12, 2014, which sounds pretty old, but she was all of 96 when she passed away in 2003. Quite a dame.

The Rules and Specifics

    1. Feel free to write on any subject as long as the central theme is Katharine Hepburn, her life and her work. There is no date range – feel free to write about Hepburn’s life and career before Hollywood. You may also write about the films she made later in life, including the made-for-TV movies she made in the 1980s and 90s.
    2. You may double up on topics as long as there is a different spin. (i.e. Two people may write about THE PHILADELPHIA STORY (1940) if one post is about the costumes and the other is about the script)
    3. I will not be assigning days for posting. You may post your article any time leading up to and including May 12. The deadline will be MIDNIGHT on May 12.

“Le Hepburn” would like to remind you:

  • Please spell Katharine correctly – that’s K-A-T-H-A-R-I-N-E.
    With a K and two As.
  • Please do not confuse your Hepburns! This is Katharine, not Audrey. I know most of you don’t need to be reminded. Audrey is great! Gorgeous! Sublime! But all entries about Audrey will ever-so-politely rejected from this blogathon. Thank you!
