Using US Census reports, I estimate that since 1985, the lower 60 percent of households have lost $4 trillion, most of which has ascended to the top 5 percent, including a growing tier now taking in $1 million or more each year.

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.

That was all Cary and me. —Katharine Hepburn

“This script was a good one. Cary Grant was really wonderful in it. And I was good too. And the leopard was excellent. Cary had always refused to work with the leopard. Didn’t care for it at all. Once, to torture him, we dropped a stuffed leopard through the vent in the top of his dressing room. Wow! He was out of there like lightning.”
-Hepburn in her autobiography, Me
