Need to know which Audrey Hepburn movie got the best reviews from critics and audiences and which one got the worst reviews? Well you have come to the right place….because we have all of that information.
Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993), an Oscar® winning actress, appeared in 26 movies from 1951 to 1989. While filming a small part in 1951’s We Will All Go To Monte Carlo, she was spotted by French novelist Colette. Colette picked Hepburn to play Gigi in the Broadway play Gigi. The success of the play led to Hepburn’s first starring role….1953’s Roman Holiday. Roman Holiday was a hit and earned her the Oscar® for Best Actress. From 1953 until the rest of her life she was an internationally star.
Although she only made 16 movies during her peak of stardom (1953-1967)….check out some of her legendary leading men….Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday, Humphrey Bogart in Sabrina, Henry Fonda in War and Peace, Gary Cooper in Love in the Afternoon, Fred Astaire in Funny Face, Burt Lancaster in The Unforgiven, James Garner in The Children’s Hour, Cary Grant in Charade, William Holden in Paris When It Sizzles, Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady, Peter O’ Toole in How To Steal A Million and Albert Finney in Two For The Road. I can only imagine the stories she could share of her experiences behind the scenes with all of these incredible actors.
My personal favorite Audrey Hepburn movies are 1963’s Charade and 1966’s How To Steal A Million. I have seen 17 of her 24 movies to date.
