I love Katherine Hepburn. She is my favourite actress and inspirational figure of all time.
Hepburn and Tracy were nothing if not extraordinary. While preserving their individuality, they united to form a whole greater than the sum of its parts. As Tracy says to Hepburn in Pat and Mike, in a line that could have been written by Tracy himself and that finally tapers off in to infinity, ‘What’s good for you is good for me is good for you…’

Ava Gardner – Stunningly beautiful in her own right.
Ginger Rogers – What spirit, what a cat!
Elizabeth Taylor. I don’t love her, but she does have that smouldering look.
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, have been married for 63 years. I really love this shot. Irving, this is for you. There can be love that lasts forever.
