Rating: 5/5 -- A lovely film. Full Review
William Wyler, an expert at heavy drama, here proves equally adroit in handling a gay romantic comedy. Full Review
Wistful HOLIDAY remains one of the most popular films by director William Wyler, a three-time Oscar winner.
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).
- 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.
