5 Audrey Hepburn Movies To Watch
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Audrey Hepburn. I have a pretty impressive collection of her movies (the image above doesn't even make a dent)! My interest in classic movies started when my grandmother used to babysit my siblings and I when we were very young. The only option of entertainment was watching my grandmother's favorite classic movies! I remember watching the movie "Charade" and asking so many questions about Audrey, from then on I was hooked! There are 5 of her movies that are my absolute favorite and never get old to me!
1. Sabrina- 1954 featuring Humphrey Bogart and William Holden, the movie is a romantic comedy about a girl named Sabrina Fairchild who is the Larabee family's chauffeurs daughter. She's been in love with David Larabee her whole life, but after a series of events both the Larabee brothers end up competing for her affections! Costume design in this movie are by the legendary Edith Head (who won an Oscar) and gowns Hubert Givenchy.
2. Breakfast at Tiffany's- 1961 featuring George Peppard and Mickey Rooney, is about a New York socialite Holly Golightly who becomes interested in a young man who moves into her apartment building. She gets rid of the "mean reds" (not to be confused with the blues) by going to Tiffany's!
3. Funny Face- 1957 featuring Fred Astaire and Kay Thompson, is a musical film about a bookstore clerk named Jo Stockton who gets discovered by fashion photographer Dick Avery during an impromptu fashion photoshoot that happens in her bookstore.
4. Roman Holiday-1953 featuring Gregory Peck, is a film about a young Princess Ann who is tired of the constricting life of being a royal. She decides to escape pretending to be someone else and ends up falling in love with an American newsman in Rome.
5. My Fair Lady-1965 featuring Rex Harrison, is an iconic musical film about Eliza Doolittle a poor Cockney flower seller, who overhears Henry Higgens a phonetics professor bragging he could teach her "proper" English and pass her off as a duchess at a high society ball.
