n” in 1938, it is clear that Hollywood was not prepared for the young actress, but even after being scorned by the general public, she still retained a magnetism that would endear her to the public for decades to come. After a tumultuous first decade as an actress, Hepburn became arguably the biggest box office sensation in the industry, and in an era when most actresses were unable to secure starring roles after reaching middle age, she remained a leading lady even after turning 60.Aside from being one of the most recognized and acclaimed actresses in history, Katharine Hepburn's career is also of great importance because she forced Americans to reevaluate their expectations for female behavior, both in films themselves and off the movie set as well. As society began to pay greater attention to the importance of strong roles for women, Hepburn’s career gained an even greater importance, and at a time in which women were expected to be passive, she was a fiercely individual figure who offered a daring alternative to the conventions of femininity that had long existed in American culture.For someone whose career ended over 30 years ago, Audrey Hepburn continues to retain her popularity and exert a strong influence over how people view beauty and sophistication. She remains an American icon, despite the fact that she did not even move to the United States until 1953 (at the age of 24) and spent the majority of her life living in Europe, while her characters in films such as Roman Holiday (1953) and Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) are still held up as the paragon of delicate femininity and elegance. After undergoing a revival in popularity throughout the 1990s, her renewed popularity has refused to wane, and even though she acted in just 25 films, Hepburn is viewed in high regard by the entertainment establishment. When the American Film Institute listed their Top 100 actresses of the past century, Audrey trailed only Katharine Hepburn and Bette Davis.Audrey Hepburn has been canonized as one of the preeminent actresses in history, but the majority of the other actresses on the American Film Institute list appeared in far more films than she did, and many of her films are almost entirely forgotten at the present moment. People are still familiar with Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Roman Holiday, and Funny Face (1957), but Paris When it Sizzles (1964) and How to Steal a Million (1966) were virtually forgotten not long after their release. In light of the relative obscurity of many of Hepburn’s films, it is worthwhile to consider exactly what Hepburn possessed that gave her such enduring popularity and significance. Obviously, she was very attractive, but so are many actresses; in fact, it seemed to be Hepburn’s ability to be both attractive and angelic that seemed to set her apart. She brought a different kind of beauty to Hollywood; in the words of Barry Paris, she was the “diametric opposite of the European sex goddess.”Hollywood’s Most Iconic Starlets looks at the life of the iconic actress on and off the silver screen. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Audrey Hepburn and Katharine Hepburn like you never have before.
