Katharine Cornell’s
Beautiful flands
I by MARTHA LEAVITT
Katharine Cornell has proved that hands are what you
make them. When she created her youthful "Juliet,”
critics spoke of her gestures. The intent young raising
of her hand, palm outward, with the back of her fingers lightly
pressing her forehead, bespoke Juliet’s fourteen years.
Her hands habitually speak almost as clearly as her words.
She drops them in her lap, the fingers of her right hand at Test
in the palm of her left. Sometimes she folds her arms in front
of her, and you notice the relaxation of her fingers.
She has a habit, too, of placing her hands on her hips, as
many modem women do. With her it is not a challenge, nor is
it the posturing of a mannequin. Her hand rests lightly on the
hips, with the thumb back and her fingers evenly apart.
At the table, when she is not eating, Katharine Cornell sits
with her sensitive finger tips just touching the table, like a
woman of the old royal courts. So, too, she rests them on her
desk or touches the piano keys.
The polish on her nails is of a natural shade and she wears a
large oval-shaped ring which shines iridescent green.
