Article Excerpt:

Episode 28 of 52:In which Katharine Hepburn proves hitting like a girl is a good thing.

Guess what!My dad met Katharine Hepburn.Decades before I was born,unfortunately,which seems like poor parenting on his part.Anyway,my dad was a professional tennis player in the early 1970s.Since he looked cute in shorts and was charming company (two traits I inherited from him along with his humility),he'd get invited to parties before tournaments in LA and Las Vegas.At one such party,he met Kate the Great.Dad's words:

"I recall her as being very petite,wonderful husky voice,would look at you directly when speaking… Like so many actors,actresses etc.,incredible charisma… Incredible spunk but not an outstanding athlete...By the then Hollywood standards,she may well have been great."

Please keep in mind that this meeting was twenty years afterPat and Mike,so it's possible my dad's opinion may have been different if he'd seen her play in her prime.And have no doubts,Katharine Hepburn may have been 45 when she picked up a tennis racket and a golf club forPat and Mike,but she was definitely still in her physical prime.Pat and Mike,Kate and Spencer Tracy's seventh film together,is a showcase for KHep's mad sports skills.
