Roman Holiday (1953)

Movie synopsis:

Princess Anne embarks on a highly publicized tour of European capitals. When she and her royal entourage arrive in Rome, she begins to rebel against her restricted, regimented schedule. One night Anne sneaks out of her room, hops into the back of a delivery truck and escapes her luxurious confinement. However, a sedative she was forced to take earlier starts to take effect, and the Princess is soon fast asleep on a public bench. She is found by Joe Bradley, an American newspaper reporter stationed in Rome. He takes her back to his apartment. The next morning Joe dashes off to cover the Princess Anne press conference, unaware that she is sleeping on his couch. Once he realizes his good fortune, Joe promises his editor an exclusive interview with the Princess.

    Here's the scene where Gregory Peck and the director William Wyler played a practical joke on Audrey Hepburn and her reaction is what made it into the film. You can clearly hear the audio change, from studio post production to live microphone feed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6af1dAc9rXo

    A great little film that still holds up on repeated viewing. Audrey Hepburn is charming and is believable as a princess. Gregory Peck and Eddie Albert were also great. Thanks everyone for coming out to see the film on such a huge movie screen! And thanks for coming to Spring Rolls. I'll upload the food pictures later.

    Just bought my ticket. I would also recommend you don't use your scene points to get a ticket, apparently they're charging 1200pts for this one! It's better to pay the $6, then you'll earn 100pts.

    I would like to join up afters.

    May not make it on time with a group to watch. So I will change my RSVP for you to manage the event easily. Sorry Phil, but I may run into you at the theatre! :)
