This article talks about Hollywood legends who passed away in the year 2003. The motion picture industry lost Katharine Hepburn, the most Oscared of all performers and a fascinating presence onscreen for 62 years and Bob Hope, the long-distance runner of all funnymen. It also had to say goodbye to such Academy Award winners as John Schlesinger, George Roy Hill and Art Carney. The list goes on and on, a rare few like Hepburn known to many generations of filmgoers, others such as Charles Bronson and Jeanne Grain following the more normal career route, extremely important marquee draws during their individual heydays, their names eventually dimmed with filmgoers as the years rolled on.
