Women in their 20s who have fallen in love with capri pants this spring probably don't know that a young actress made them fashionable almost 50 years ago. Her name was Audrey Hepburn, and her influence on 20th-century fashion was as noteworthy as her movie stardom."

After critics flayed him for the swoony lyricism of "Ryan's Daughter," David Lean said he could have justified that film's picture-postcard love imagery by having a priest tell the heroine that she was "seeing the world through rose-colored glasses." And why not? A similar strategy had worked niftily for Lean before, in the elegant 1955 romance "Summertime," playing this weekend in a restored print at the Charles. In the opening scene, Lean depicts a single, 40ish woman, Jane Hudson ( Katharine Hepburn)

When Billy Wilder's comedies clicked, whole groups of stars could settle into unexpectedly risible constellations - as they did in his most purely entertaining movie, the gangbusters Roaring Twenties farce, "Some Like It Hot." Wilder had worked with Monroe before 1959, but in "Some Like It Hot," he took her dizzy-blonde persona and ran with it. When Monroe's Sugar Kane, a ukulele-strumming singer in an all-girl band, isn't cooing or tippling, she's falling for male tenor-sax players. The way Wilder and his co-writer, I.A.L.

Carolyn Farina doesn't know what it was that writer-director Whit Stillman saw in her when he was looking for actors for his ''Metropolitan.''''He was looking for someone like Audrey Hepburn. Whatever it was, I'm glad he saw it,'' said Farina, who, at 26, is older than Audrey, the girl she plays in the film. You wouldn't, however, know that. In the lobby of the St. Mark Hotel in New York, Farina seemed no more than 18, the age of the girl she plays.At this stage in her career, she is completely unaffected and in person, is even prettier than she is on screen.

ME: STORIES OF MY LIFE.Katharine Hepburn.Knopf.418 pages. $25. Katharine the Great gives one of her worst performances in this windy, disjointed autobiography. Ms. Hepburn has done the impossible: made herself a bore, bore, bore.Hollywood's pre-eminent film actress prattles on and on, numbingly, over 418 pages decorated with 165 photographs. She preaches self-reliance like Ethel Thayer in "On Golden Pond," salutes colleagues as if delivering a chronic Oscar speech and botches her tale by constantly digressing.

The names above the title -- Katharine Hepburn starring in Truman Capote's "One Christmas" -- are a little bit misleading.In fact, Hepburn has a very small role in this adaptation of Capote's short story, which airs at 9 tonight on WMAR (Channel 2).And there is not much Capote here either, if you think of a Capote story as one of charm, sadness and insight.Certainly, there are almost no points of comparison between "One Christmas" and the classic "Christmas Memory," the brilliant adaptation by director Frank Perry of another Capote short story, which aired last week on A&E.The main problem with "One Christmas" is it's not sure if it's for children or adults, so it ends up being right for neither.

No one would ever accuse "My Fair Lady" of being light on its feet, and the restored version of the 3 1/2 -hour 1964 behemoth that has just opened on the big screen at the Senator sometimes feels like an attack by the Third Armored Division with full air and artillery support. Still, it packs considerable entertainment wallop.Adapted from the famous Lerner-Loewe musical of the '50s, which itself was adapted from George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion," the movie was directed by the elderly George Cukor, a specialist in "women's pictures."

I am an Audrey Hepburn look-alike. I've admired her all my life and often wished I could have some memento of her.Now I hear that Hubert Givenchy, who designed so many clothes for her movies, has done his last collection. I want to splurge and get something from it. I want an outfit I'll have forever and that will complement my now 40ish Hepburn look. What should I choose?You're right, Givenchy designed his final collection for this spring, and clothes you are interested in are in the stores right now. Givenchy clothes have always been elegant, so that's the look to go for.For daytime I'd choose a suit, and a House of Givenchy representative agrees:"A navy tailored suit is a great choice from a spring collection.

Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn By William J. Mann William J. Mann devotes significant attention to Katharine Hepburn's rocky relationships with studios and with the press, revealing that the self-styled renegade wasn't above collaborating to shape her public image, and depicts her final decline into alcoholism and depression with sensitivity. This will surely be the definitive version of Hepburn's life for decades to come, as it is an outstanding example of painstaking research matched with splendid writing.

KATHARINE HEPBURN 100TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION -- Warner Home Video / $59.92 Every time I watch a movie starring the wondrous Katharine Hepburn, I'm reminded of all the ways in which she was a feminist symbol, and all the ways in which she failed to be. Ample evidence for both sides of the argument runs through The Katharine Hepburn 100th Anniversary Collection, which is being released Tuesday. The six-disc box set is a compendium of early films, cult classics and prestige items, and includes The Corn is Green, Morning Glory, Dragon Seed, Sylvia Scarlett, Undercurrent and Without Love.

She was 88. Beatrice Houghton Hooker was born and raised in Baltimore.

Washington -- As stately, sleek and elegant as the columns that surround her in the Capitol, she stands in front of the podium facing a throng of cameras, reporters and Hill aides who've come to "have a look at the old girl," as the old girl herself puts it.So let's have a look: navy blue suit and white blouse with blue stockings and sensible blue pumps. No earrings, no nail polish, no necklace or brooch; hair pinned back simply, only the slightest smidge of makeup.No frills. No need for them.

NEW YORK - Somewhere yesterday, Katharine Hepburn certainly was howling. Whether in amusement or astonishment - now that was the question. What would the famously practical Hepburn, a thrifty, no-nonsense New Englander to her core, have thought about someone plunking down $10,200 for an outdoor plant stand she never even stood a plant on, or $10,800 for a pair of well-worn address books, filled with the names and phone numbers of people long departed from...

If seeing Kate Mulgrew do Katharine Hepburn in Tea at Five rouses a thirst for the real thing, the Charles Theatre offers an ideal way to slake it with a seven-week tribute to this unlikely Hollywood luminary, screening Saturdays at noon and Thursdays at 9 p.m. As Martin Scorsese and Cate Blanchett make comically and poignantly clear in The Aviator, Hepburn was the rare female star who was neither a glamour girl nor an Everywoman. But her roles were so diverse that every woman could identify with her. With her piercing voice, knife-like posture and switchblade limbs, she was as easy for nightclub comics to imitate as James Cagney.
