Saturday State Post: Classic Movie Actors from Connecticut

It was my intention to publish this state post last Saturday, which was during the week of Katharine Hepburn’s 104th birthday, but I wasn’t able to get it done in time. So although I’m a bit late, this week’s post is in honor of Katharine’s birthday and will highlight movie stars from her home state of Connecticut. To add a little something different, this week I decided to also list my personal favorite from the filmography of each actor.

A few of the actors and actresses from the state of Connecticut are:
