SABRINA
1954, Paramount, 113 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder

Chauffeur's daughter Audrey Hepburn blooms from ugly duckling to a chic young woman who must choose between wealthy, middle-aged Humphrey Bogart and cocky lover-boy William Holden.


ROMAN HOLIDAY
1953, Paramount, 118 min, Dir: William Wyler

A real-life princess (Audrey Hepburn), weary of her sheltered existence, takes off on her own to see the sights of Rome, only to encounter romance in the form of suave Gregory Peck. But unbeknownst to Hepburn, Peck is really a reporter out for a story, a fact that inevitably complicates things as the two grow more intimate. This sweet-natured romantic comedy won three Oscars, including Best Actress for Hepburn.


THEY ALL LAUGHED
1981, HBO Films, 115 min, USA, Dir: Peter Bogdanovich

Director Peter Bogdanovich uses the private-eye genre as a vehicle to deliver deeply romantic insights about love, marriage and regret. John Ritter and Ben Gazzara work for the Odyssey Detective Agency, a firm where the investigators are more concerned with their own complicated love lives than with solving any cases. Audrey Hepburn and Dorothy Stratten co-star in this hilarious ensemble dramedy, a film that Quentin Tarantino declared one of the 10 greatest ever made.
