Roman Holiday > Wiki


Roman Holiday is a 1953 romantic comedy. The film introduced American audiences to Belgian-born actress Audrey Hepburn, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Gregory Peck and Eddie Albert co-starred. The movie was directed and produced by William Wyler. It was written by John Dighton and author Dalton Trumbo. As Trumbo was on the Hollywood blacklist, he was not credited; instead, Ian McLellan Hunter fronted for him. Trumbo's name was finally digitally added to the film's credits when it was released on DVD in 2003.

In the 1970s, both Peck and Hepburn were approached with the idea of a sequel, but the project never came to fruition. The film was remade for television in 1987 with Tom Conti and Catherine Oxenberg, who herself came from a European royal family.

I watched this movie for the first time in Russia when I was a little girl and really enjoyed it. Then I saw it in the States when I was a little older, it brought back those childhood memories. I like classic movies in general, but I especially enjoyed Roman Holiday for the fun plot and the actress Audrey Hepburn. I think she sums up the ideal image of a woman at that time, very lady like and gracious, refined and pleasant. Of course you can't expect much for special effects in a movie from 1953, …
