Roman Holiday

Movie Poster

This romantic comedy was released in 1953. Audrey Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance; the screenplay and costume design also took statuettes. The story is about a runaway princess in Rome who finds love with a reporter who knows her true identity. This is a great movie that also stars Gregory Peck. The story is light and the movie keeps you entertained. This film also helped America fall in love with the Vespa scooter.

  1. I love Audrey Hepburn’s style! I love watching these old movies for the clothing styles and the innocence of the stories. This story has been remade a couple of times in recent years but the 1953 version is still the one that grabs at my heart! Thanks for the reminder! Now I have to go find a copy of that skirt!!! Or learn to sew ….. hahaha… shopping it is! Cheers!

  2. Wow, I just saw this recently on TCM. What an enchanting movie it was. I think everything Audrey did was enchanting. And like Sherry, I adore watching these old films to swoon over the fashions and the outstanding background decor. Man-Oh-Man, would SO love to get my mitts on some of the furniture & accessories. ANYTHING “Audrey” we take into the store – photo’s, Audrey-style dresses or hats FLIES right out the door. I’ve got a smashing black Audrey-style sheath dress and netted hat to take in this weekend & I know it’s gonna disappear as soon as it gets there. Thank you Audrey! Anyway, thank YOU too Hepcat! Nuther fine blog today
