Event Details

Roman Holiday (1953)
B&W Film

An NCPA & Film Heritage Foundation Presentation

“It is a contrived fable but a bittersweet legend with laughs that leaves the spirits soaring,” wrote A.H. Weiler in The New York Times in 1953. Director William Wyler and star Gregory Peck were better known for earnest drama than for comedy, but the casting of Audrey Hepburn in her first American role and what was then a daring decision to shoot a big Hollywood production on the bustling streets of Rome helped make this romcom a breath of fresh air. With her elfin looks and winsome charm, Hepburn is perfectly cast as Anne, the visiting princess who escapes her restrictive schedule of state duties to fall in with foreign correspondent Joe (Gregory Peck), who shows her the sights and the time of her life.

Directed & produced by William Wyler
Written by Ian Mclellan Hunter & John Dighton
Cast: Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, Eddie Albert & others
