Rating: 5/5 -- A lovely film. Full Review
With Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn turning in superb performances, Roman Holiday is 118 minutes of sheer entertainment. Full Review
[Hepburn is] still enormously popular, fondly remembered for her elegant, effortless warmth on screen.
[Wyler] times the chuckles with a never-flagging pace, puts heart into the laughs, endows the footage with some boff bits of business and points up some tender, poignant scenes in using the smart script and the cast to the utmost advantage. Full Review
What a never-to-be-forgotten brief holiday it was, befitting one of filmdom's true regal princesses. Full Review
ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Rating: 3.5/4 -- For lovers of romantic comedies through the ages, Roman Holiday remains a favorite. Full Review
The newcomer named Audrey Hepburn gives the popular old romantic nonsense a reality it has seldom had before. Full Review
This classic romantic comedy introduced Audrey Hepburn to audiences as a modern-day princess. Stifled by her royal entourage on a trip to Rome, Hepburn's Princess Ann escapes to explore the Italian city on her own. While incognito, she falls in love with an American newspaperman, Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck). When Bradley learns of Ann's true identity, he finds himself torn between following his nose for news--and turning her into a big story--or the growing affections of his heart. A hit in 1953, ROMAN HOLIDAY won Hepburn an Academy Award for Best Actress, and was also notable for its Oscar-winning story by then-blacklisted Dalton Trumbo (credited as Ian McLellan Hunter).
- ROMAN HOLIDAY was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1999.
- Blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo originally could not claim the credit for "Story." The Academy Award went to Ian McLellan Hunter, who was fronting for Trumbo. McLellan was in the meantime hiding out in Mexico--avoiding a House subpoena-- and did not attend the ceremony to accept the award in person.
