Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story (George Cukor, 1940)
The anti-communist hysteria in 1940s Hollywood prompted her to political activity, and she made a speech against censorship in May 1947 that shocked the public. Targeted by right-wing activists as a supposed communist sympathizer, she was mentioned at the hearings of the House Un-American Activities Committee. She insisted that the claims made about her were untrue. She was an outspoken supporter of birth control and abortion rights.

We wanted it to be as good as it could possibly be. Nothing was ever too much trouble. And we were both very early on the set. Howard Hawks was always late, so Cary and I worked out an awful lot of stuff together. We’d make up things to do on the screen — how to work out those laughs in Bringing Up Baby. That was all Cary and me. —Katharine Hepburn
