Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Audrey had the great chance not only to be born as a literally beautiful human being, but also to star in literally beautiful and enjoyable films. She didn’t have a big filmography, because she didn’t make many films, as she preferred to take care of her two sons. But she had the opportunity to appear in productions that were mostly good – some of them were masterpieces! She was and will always be a fashion icon, a model for any woman. She was unique and we should be happy that she existed and that she contributed in her own way to the magnificence of the Seventh Art.

The following list of films of Audrey is written in chronological order. All these films are remarkable productions and also very enjoyable and entertaining. I recommend them to everyone who wants to have a wonderful time watching good cinema and to discover the magic of Audrey Hepburn.

  1. Roman Holiday (1953)
  2. Sabrina (1954)
  3. Funny Face (1957)
  4. Love in the Afternoon (1957)
  5. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
  6. Charade (1963)
  7. My Fair Lady (1964)
  8. How to Steal a Million (1966)

*Not a particularly enjoyable film, but rather a sad one, is “The Nun’s Story” (1959), my personal favourite film with Audrey.

Roman Holiday (1953) – posters

One of the most romantic films of the 1950’s, “Roman Holiday” marked the debut of Audrey Hepburn in Hollywood. She was the Princess, similarly to Grace Kelly (who was born in 1929, like A. Hepburn). Audrey and Gregory Peck had great chemistry and the direction of William Wyler was also very important. “Roman Holiday” was a personal favourite film of his. But I think that the script, written by Dalton Trumbo, added to the high quality of this motion picture. The film was shot in Rome and that is why the posters that promote the film also promote Rome as a holiday destination.

The Maltese Falcon (1941) – posters

The first major film noir, “The Maltese Falcon” was directed by John Huston and it starred Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet. It was one of the top films of the 1940’s and it’s still very popular among the movie goers. Some posters emphasize the fascination for the infamous bird.

The Painted Veil (1934) – posters and lobby cards

“The Painted Veil” is one of my favourite films with Greta Garbo. She looks exquisite and plays very well her complex role. Herbert Marshall and George Brent are two elegant actors, too, and they fit as Garbo’s partners. The posters and lobby cards are also very nice.
