Roman Holiday DVD
Starring Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Eddie Albert, Harcourt Williams, Hartley Power, Laura Solari, Margaret Rawlings, Tullio Carminati
Directed by William Wyler
Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck star in this classic romantic drama from director William Wyler.
Bored with royal protocol while in Rome for an official engagement, Princess Anne (Hepburn) escapes her claustrophobic entourage in order to see what life beyond the castle is like.
Down-at-heel American reporter Joe Bradley (Peck) is just one of many journalists vying for an interview, but he realises he has a major scoop on his hands when he meets the princess and initially pretends not to know who she is.
Roping in a photographer friend, Bradley takes her on a tour of the city over 24 hours, all the while falling more in love with her.
The film, which was shot on location in Rome, was nominated for ten Academy Awards, with Hepburn's performance winning her an Oscar, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe.
