Product Overview

The incomparable Ms. Hepburn is featured in a trio of her most memorable films: ROMAN HOLIDAY (her first starring role and an Oscar-winning performance), BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S and SABRINA!

ROMAN HOLIDAY: ROMAN HOLIDAY was nominated for ten Academy Awards, and Audrey Hepburn captured an Oscar for her portrayal of a modern-day princess rebelling against her royal obligations who explores Rome on her own. She meets Gregory Peck, an American newspaperman who, seeking an exclusive story, pretends ignorance of her true identity. But his plan falters as they fall in love. Eddie Albert contributes to the fun as Peck's carefree cameraman pal. Stylishly directed by William Wyler, this romantic comedy ranks as one of the most enjoyable films of all time.

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S: From the opening strains of Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer's haunting Oscar-winning song "Moon River," you'll once again be under the alluring spell of that madcap, carefree New York playgirl known as Holly Golighty (Audrey Hepburn) in this 24-carat romantic comedy based on Truman Capote's best-selling novella. George Peppard is the struggling and "sponsored" young writer who finds himself swept into Holly's dizzying, delightfully unstructured lifestyle as she determinedly scours Manhattan for a suitable millionaire to marry. The sparkling special features on this Anniversary Edition DVD only add to the luster of director Black Edwards' timeless film classic.

SABRINA: SABRINA is charming, humorous and aglow with some of Hollywood's greatest stars. Humphrey Bogart, William Holden and Audrey Hepburn star in a Cinderella story directed by renowned filmmaker Billy Wilder (Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot). Bogie and Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island. Bogie's all work, Holden's all playboy. But when SABRINA, daughter of the family's chauffeur, returns from Paris all grown up and glamorous, the stage is set for some family fireworks as the brothers fall under the spell of Hepburn's delightful charms.

Plot Summary
Summary "Breakfast at Tiffany's": Sparkling and, ultimately, poignant comedy about a free-spirited young woman in New York City, and her relationship with an aspiring writer. Holly Golightly partakes of all the pleasure the big city has to offer -- parties, fine restaurants, and handsome, wealthy men who pay her way and pay her rent. Then she meets a new neighbor, a hopeful writer who himself lives off the generosity of a rich benefactor; soon the two have begun a close, but thorny relationship as Holly struggles to keep her freedom... and not fall in love.| "Sabrina": A chauffeur's daughter falls hard for the dashing son of her father's employer, and the young playboy ends up breaking her heart. After recuperating in France, Sabrina comes back home to find unlikely love with the heartbreaker's older brother, a buttoned-down, all-business type who previously had no time whatsoever for affairs of the heart. | "Roman Holiday":

Review [Breakfast] ...With this movie a new kind of woman made her first significant appearance on the screen; Hepburn stands as a precursor to the liberated woman who would appear in the films of the late 1960s. One who, in spite of her independence, realizes that she is not as tough as she would have us believe.

Review [Sabrina] ...a perfect example of the kind of film where the actors have greater importance than any other aspect of the production... Audrey Hepburn is radiant in the title role. Bogart, best known for his tough guy image, plays effectively against type as a romantic lead. And Wiliam Holden...is the perfect playboy... Sabrina is playfully seductive, and will leave almost all viewers...with a smile on their lips and a warm glow in their hearts.

Review [Roman] For lovers of romantic comedies through the ages, Roman Holiday remains a favorite. Despite being directed by one of Hollywood's "heavy hitters," William Wyler (The Best Years of Our Lives, Ben-Hur), and starring bankable star Gregory Peck, the movie is perhaps best known as the coming out party for Audrey Hepburn, who won a Best Actress Oscar in this, her first lead role. Shot on location in Rome with a budget of about $1.5 million, the film's domestic box-office take of $5 million put it comfortably in the black and established Hepburn as a major acting force. Because of its romantic appeal and whimsical qualities, this remains one of only a few black-and-white movies that modern audiences willingly watch...If you're in the mood for something airy and uplifting, Roman Holiday is the trip to take.

Review [Sabrina] As part of the Paramount Audrey Hepburn collection, the original classic Sabrina is now available once more for a new generation of romantic comedy enthusiasts. This is one of the best romantic comedies of all time, one in which not only our heartstrings are tugged but our minds can learn even today about the class differences between rich and poor. A fine remake was done in 1995 with Harrison Ford, but it still couldn't compete with the original cast and brilliant direction of Billy Wilder. With Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, and William Holden in the leading roles it is hard to think of a better team...If you have a romantic bone in your body, you should see this film at least once. If you are a fan of Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, or William Holden you should see this film as well.

Review [Breakfast] It's been 45 years since Breakfast at Tiffany's hit theaters and Audrey Hepburn made her indelible impression as beautiful, vulnerable, flighty Holly Golightly - a woman who could teach Carrie Bradshaw and her pals a thing or two about Sex and the City...For those who have somehow managed to miss one of Hepburn's most luminous turns in the spotlight, her Holly is a gal-about-town who expects to eventually marry a millionaire and whom men generously tip $50 each time she goes to the powder room. In other words, she is a hooker, though this 1961 adaptation of Truman Capote's novella was not going to be vulgar enough to say so out loud...As movie romances go, there are few finer than Breakfast at Tiffany's, and after 45 years, it's lost none of its glow.
