An auction is set to start tonight to sell off a host of items associated with Howard Hughes, icluding a batch of telegrams sent by the aviation maverick/movie producer to actress Katherine Hepburn, during their 1930s affair. Included for sale is a telegram sent by Hughes to Hepburn in  1937, on the day he set a record by flying from California to New Jersey in seven hours, 28 minutes and 25 seconds. Hughes signed that one "love, Dan" - Dan being short for Dynamite, which was the secret nickname Hepburn used to call him. Say it with me now: that's hot.
