Classic Stars Match Play #4: The Battle Of The Hepburns

This should be a very intriguing match: Katharine Hepburn vs Audrey Hepburn.There was no rivarly as far as I can tell so this will be simply a match to see which Hepburn was more liked. I know both women had good runs in my tournament play before losing in the semi-finals of their respective era. So it will be cool to see how this match turns out. The match begins today and runs thru Sunday noon. Good luck to both women!
