Roman Holiday

The Audrey Hepburn legend starts here, and deservedly so. As a European princess overwhelmed by her duties who plays hooky incognito in the Eternal City, she sparkles and charms. The story of this indelible romcom posits that Gregory Peck’s reporter character may exploit the hot story of a princess falling into his lap, but c’mon—she’s Audrey Hepburn and he’s Gregory Peck. -LG
