Hepburn Telegram Collection Goes On Show

Late actress KATHARINE HEPBURN's letters, scripts and telegrams from legends including CARY GRANT and JANE FONDA are to go on show.

The trove of mementoes collected by the OSCAR-winning beauty have been left to the ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURES ARTS AND SCIENCES - and include a telegram from her lover SPENCER TRACY advising her about "underplaying ".

LINDA MEHR, director of the academy's MARGARET HERRICK LIBRARY, says, "She seemed to have saved everything.

"This is a record collection...and the most comprehensive. She was such an articulate person and one with whom people loved to correspond."

Hepburn, who received four acting Academy Awards, died last year (03) at the age of 96.
