Roman Holiday

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.

We'll meet in the ticket hall entrance of the BFI at 6.00pm and then go for a drink after the film. I'll be carrying a Meetup sign or if you can't find me feel free to give me a call on[masked]

Hope to see you guys there!

    Great film. Looked into Phil's question did Gregory Peck ever look anything other than middle aged in a film. First big film with him in would have been Spellbound I reckon when he was 28 and he does look pretty middle aged in this despite his young age.

    Wyler, Hepburn, Rome, I'm in! Love this film. Your write up says Cary Grant but it stars Gregory Peck not Cary Grant, though the role was originally written for him apparently.
