Favorite Judy Garland relationships: Katharine Hepburn
“Katharine Hepburn marched in. She told Judy of her own troubles making it in films, how she had felt when she was labeled ‘Box Office Poison’ and rated as one of the most difficult of actresses, and she spoke of her troubles with Spencer Tracy. Spencer, too, had his bad moments; he was not always an easy man. ‘I’ve had my own troubles and my troubles with Spence, darling. But you’re one of the two greatest living talents we have. Now you get your ass up. The world needs you.’ And after a few more words of love and common sense, she kissed Judy, ran out the back way, jumped over a rear fence and outwitted the press by taking a short cut home.” – An excerpt from Judy by Gerold Frank regarding Katharine Hepburn’s visit after Judy’s suicide attempt
