94. Roman Holiday

DIRECTED BY WILLIAM WYLER

WRITTEN BY DALTON TRUMBO, IAN MCLELLAN & JOHN DIGHTON

STARING: GREGORY PECK & AUDREY HEPBURN

RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 27, 1953

AGE RECOMMENDED: ALL

This is actually my favorite movie. I saw this movie when I was around ten with both of my parents after midnight and is in fact one of my dearest memories. Every time I watch this movie I think on that night.

Again in this list Gregory Peck. This movie is in fact the ultimate fairy tale, and according to the American Film Institute the fourth best romantic  of all times.

The movie is a delightful, captivating fairytale/romance, shot entirely in Rome; and directed by one best directors – William Wyler.The film’s bittersweet story is a charming romantic-comedy, a kind of Cinderella tale in reverse (with an April-October romance). A runaway princess (Hepburn) rebels against her royal obligations and escapes the insulated confines of her royal prison to find a ‘Prince Charming’ commoner – an American reporter (Peck) covering the royal tour in Rome. The story was reportedly based on the real-life Italian adventures of British Princess Margaret.

This movie also contains one of the famous scenes in the history of films – Gregory Peck and the Mouth of truth. Continue reading
