ROMAN HOLIDAY (1953)
Starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn and directed by William Wyler, Roman Holiday won three Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Costume Design and Best Writing. In this timeless classic, Hepburn is at her transcendent best as a sheltered princess who falls for an American newsman in Rome.
“Roman Holiday” is well-scripted and well-acted with gorgeous visuals shot on location in Italy. It’s a charming film with wit fresh enough for a modern audience.
