In Garson Kanin's TRACY AND HEPBURN, he talks about Katharine Hepburn appearing in a film with John Barrymore. Of course he invited her to his dressing room for some "private coaching." She was very naive at the time and was shocked when Barrymore appeared wearing a open dressing gown over nothing at all.


Ugh. That sounds so nasty. I expect this was perhaps more the norm than not but no one talked about it. I think she was blackballed for a while, wasn't she? She seems such an interesting woman--I have a memoir and a bio of her--really should read one of them soon (maybe her "Me")!
