Description by OLDIES.com:

Roman Holiday was nominated for ten Academy Awards, and Audrey Hepburn captured an Oscar for her portrayal of a modern-day princess rebelling against her royal obligations who explores Rome on her own. She meets Gregory Peck, an American newspaperman who, seeking an exclusive story, pretends ignorance of her true identity. But his plan falters as they fall in love. Eddie Albert contributes to the fun as Peck's carefree cameraman pal. Stylishly directed by William Wyler, this romantic comedy ranks as one of the most enjoyable films of all times.

Product Description:

This classic romantic comedy introduced Audrey Hepburn to audiences as a modern-day princess. Stifled by her royal entourage on a trip to Rome, Hepburn's Princess Ann escapes to explore the Italian city on her own. While incognito, she falls in love with an American newspaperman, Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck). When Bradley learns of Ann's true identity, he finds himself torn between following his nose for news--and turning her into a big story--or the growing affections of his heart. A hit in 1953, ROMAN HOLIDAY won Hepburn an Academy Award for Best Actress, and was also notable for its Oscar-winning story by then-blacklisted Dalton Trumbo (credited as Ian McLellan Hunter).

Production Notes:

  • ROMAN HOLIDAY was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1999.
  • Blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo originally could not claim the credit for "Story." The Academy Award went to Ian McLellan Hunter, who was fronting for Trumbo. McLellan was in the meantime hiding out in Mexico--avoiding a House subpoena-- and did not attend the ceremony to accept the award in person.
  • Academy Award Nominations: 10, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay.
  • Academy Awards: 3, including Best Actress-Audrey Hepburn, Best Motion Picture story.
