Romantic comedy starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant
William Wyler took huge risks casting an unknown actress in a lead role and shooting on location but the combination of the fresh-faced Audrey Hepburn and the Eternal City’s own stunning attractions make this magical romance irresistible.
Hepburn effortlessly exudes class and innocent charm as the princess of an unnamed country who becomes increasingly weary from the intensive schedule of her ‘Goodwill Tour of European Cities’. While in Rome she sneaks away and befriends the amiable Joe (Gregory Peck, master of the raised eyebrow long before a certain Roger Moore) who, unbeknown to her, is a journalist with a massive scoop on his hands. He takes her on an eventful sightseeing tour of the city but is faced with a dilemma by the end of the day as he, along with the audience, has fallen in love with her.
