LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: We want to update you now on a developing story this morning that we are following: Hollywood legend Katharine Hepburn is right now hospitalized in Hartford, Connecticut.

Hepburn is 94 years old and a four-time Oscar winner. Now, the hospital where she was admitted says that there is no cause for alarm. We're still trying to get the latest word on her condition. And we have been able to get this statement from James Battaglio, who is a spokesman for the hospital -- Hartford Hospital.

He says that Ms. Hepburn was admitted to Hartford Hospital Wednesday evening about 6:00 p.m. She listed as stable condition. She was brought here from something called the Shoreline Clinic in Connecticut. Her physician had requested that she be admitted. She is listed as stable, as I said, and this morning is very comfortable. She is being treated here, hopefully, with the intent of discharging her sometime over the next few days, assuming she responds to her treatment.

We will continue to track that for you. The hospital is not saying exactly what type of treatment Hepburn is receiving right now. She has had various health problems in recent years.
