Talented, intelligent, and elegant, Katherine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn were two of the world's most beloved actresses and years after their deaths, remain so. The American Film Institute named them two of the top three female screen legends and an Entertainment Weekly poll declared them to be the two best classic actresses of the 20th Century. Which is your favorite Hepburn?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls085015553/
Poll: TBD

They were so different as two actors could be - a character which was perfect for one would be impossible for the other. Sorry, I pass.

They're also my two favorites, but for very different reasons.
I refuse to choose.

A good face-off, but unfortunately it has been done before:

Ruby,

Cocoken's poll Hepburn vs Hepburn is a relatively early poll that went live on 28-Feb-2014. Cocoken is a very talented poll author that discontinued suggesting polls in 15-Jan-2015. You may not have had the pleasure of interacting with her.

I do not know how Jess found Cocoken's poll. It shows up in this Google search with this search:
site:imdb.com/poll hepburn
https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf=ALeKk01suDVlxg9QB1f8lrUE6eYNcMe1hw%3A1594162194840&source=hp...

It's also fairly easy to find it in this spreadsheet that covers polls through 5-May-2020.

Excel / Google Sheets

Regardless, I consider this a difficult choice. Depending upon my mood I could easily choose either Hepburn.

Hmm, I thought that's what I Googled but probably not. I always start out with "imbd pol"l but perhaps I followed with one of their names. Whatever I Googled, I was surprised when I found other polls but didn't find that this face-off had already been done. 

I did have the pleasure of interacting with Cocoken and in fact I consider her, along with Peter, to have been my mentor when I first started making polls. She was always there with great suggestions, encouragement, and kindness. We often private messaged, as well. I've missed her, her polls, and sharing our enthusiasm for Lawrence of Arabia, Paper Moon, and strong women. : )
