Roman Holiday (U)
Audrey Hepburn’s first starring role illuminated her unique qualities beautifully. It’s hard to imagine anyone else fitting the role of a princess quite so well, in William Wyler’s romantic comedy Roman Holiday.
Hepburn is the epitome of poise and elegance as royalty on a tour of Europe. While in the public eye she maintains an immaculate facade, but she is less happy personally. The toll of endless engagements and no time for herself is slowly driving her to despair. And while in the bustling city of Rome, she makes her escape for 24 hours of fun.
Unfortunately for her she has been given an injection to sleep. Unable to stay awake she is rescued from a night spent sleeping on a wall by a begrudging Gregory Peck. It isn’t until the light of morning that journalist Peck realises who this enchanting imposition is.
