Rush & Molloy reports (via Darwin Porter’s upcoming bio) that Katharine slept with the following people: Claudette Colbert, Greta Garbo, Judy Holliday, Judy Garland, Laura Harding, Irene Selznick, the daughter of Louis B. Mayer, the wife of David O. Selznick, Ernest Hemingway, John Ford, George Stevens, John Barrymore, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Robert Ryan, Robert Mitchum, Burt Lancaster, Paul Henreid, and (of course) Spencer Tracy.
ooh, Robert Mitchum.
But not, interestingly, Tallulah Bankhead. I wonder why that was.
So Kate was just another ATM. I’m not terribly surprised.
At last, some author has decided to tell the truth about Hollywood’s most closeted bisexual. George Cukor and a hundred other people knew all this stuff long ago, and I’m delighted to see it in print for the first time. If you want fantasy, read Katharine Hepburn’s autobiography.
