    Description

    Katharine Hepburn Eight-Page Handwritten Letter. As signed material by Katharine Hepburn is rare -- she was not kindly disposed to autograph seekers, in person or by mail -- this eight-page letter is an embarrassment of riches. It is undated, handwritten in blue ink on four sheets of hotel stationery (front and back) and mailed by the legendary actress to her friend, make-up artist Emile LaVigne. In it she discusses friends and family, life in New England, and even drops a line or two about Spencer Tracy. The letter is in Excellent condition, with some fold creases and mild tanning, and is accompanied by the original mailing envelope, postmarked October 11, 1945.From the estate of Emile LaVigne.
