It is easy to love Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, like many stars of the truly glam era, they seem ethereal and always looks so close to perfection. How I wish they can restore this in full color. As a rebelling princess tired of the life in a golden bowl, she stows away for a night hoping to experience what it is like to be a normal girl. Gregory Peck is the opportunistic news agency guy assigned to a beat and in the beginning didn't really had an inkling as to who she was. Well, there lies the adventures for both the soon to be smitten guy with the playful Princess around the still traffic free Rome of those days. Entertaining , fun classic.


ROMAN HOLIDAY is a classic romantic comedy. It is one fictional tale, and a beautiful lie which is composed of laughter and emotion. The film tells about a young princess who escapes during an official visit to Rome and make friends with a cynical American journalist, who only wants the exclusive story, but later realized that he was falling in love with her. Lonely young princess unknown European countries spend a magical day with an American journalist. The junction between the young ladies of high society and unpolished common man has already seen. I think the director was aware of that fact. For this reason his is paid more attention dialogues, comedy, romance and the main Italian city. I must say that the atmosphere in the film special. Scenery and the picture are at a high level. „It Happened One Night."Although the director made sure that this movie looks as natural as possible, simply is too much in common. Princess' love affair in the Eternal City is what this film gave a special charm. Tenderness, love and playfulness in one being triumphs over cynicism and professionalism in another being. If so ask things, this movie is really one magical trip. Gregory Peck as Joe Bradley is strong and masculine character. The change in the character is visible. That is great. I think this is the best show last frames of the film. Chemistry has succeeded, so his performance is more than good. Audrey Hepburn as Princess Ann (Anya Smith) is slender and beautiful girl. Regardless of childish behavior, I think that in her character feels seriousness. She is aware of its obligations, satisfaction, loneliness and love. Romance in this film, I never would have called it an affair. This is truly a romantic vacation.They do not make more such films. A short break full of satisfaction.

Roman Holiday is, most of all, extremely charming. I figure it's basically the whole essence of why the world is still in love with Audrey Hepburn boiled down into one movie. It's light, beautiful, charming, and romantic. Gregory Peck is a great leading man opposite her, and the on-location Rome backdrop is truly extraordinary. The story is well-known, simply because it works so well and has been told so often. Two mismatched individuals from different worlds find each other by happenstance and slowly begin to fall in love. The reasons for this working so well come down to the leads and their natural presence in front of the camera. This was Hepburn's first leading role and she proves why she remains a beloved figure to this day.It's filled with many wonderful moments and vignettes, with Eddie Albert providing some excellent comedic support as a news photographer. The progression from one scene to the next feels like a natural day of two people getting to know one another. By the end, we know the outcome before it happens, but it doesn't make it any less bittersweet.
