Audrey Hepburn - Charade / Breakfast At Tiffanys / Roman Holiday / Sabrina / Funny Face DVD
Collection of classic features starring Audrey Hepburn. In 'Charade' (1963) Regina Lambert (Hepburn) returns home after a skiing trip to discover that her husband has died. At the funeral she finds out from CIA agent Hamilton Bartholomew (Walter Matthau) that he was involved in the theft of a quarter of a million dollars during World War Two. The charming Peter Joshua (Cary Grant) offers his help, but as the number of dead bodies increases, so do Peter's aliases, leaving Regina uncertain as to whether or not she can trust him. 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961) follows Holly Golightly (Hepburn), an eccentric high-class escort working in New York. Rubbing shoulders with Hollywood agents and wealthy politicians at glamorous parties, Holly plans to marry into money and save up to help support her brother who is due to return from the army. However, when young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard) - the kept man of a wealthy older woman - moves into Holly's apartment block, the pair soon find their worlds turned upside down. In 'Roman Holiday' (1953), bored with royal protocol while in Rome for an official engagement, Princess Anne (Hepburn) escapes her claustrophobic entourage in order to see what life beyond the castle is like. Down-at-heel American reporter Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) is just one of many journalists vying for an interview, but he realises he has a major scoop on his hands when he meets the princess and initially pretends not to know who she is. Roping in a photographer friend, Bradley takes her on a tour of the city over 24 hours, all the while falling more in love with her. In 'Sabrina' (1954) Sabrina Fairchild (Hepburn) is the impressionable daughter of the chauffeur to the wealthy Larabee family. Her childhood crush on David Larabee (William Holden), the playboy younger brother, goes unnoticed until she returns a woman from finishing school in Paris. When David's dalliance with Sabrina places a lucrative business deal at risk, hard-headed elder brother Linus (Humphrey Bogart) steps in and decides to woo her himself. Finally, in 'Funny Face' (1957) Jo Stockton (Hepburn) is a bookshop worker with intellectual pretensions. When she is discovered by Maggie Prescott (Kay Thompson), the editor of a top fashion magazine, and asked to become the figurehead of a new collection, Jo is uninterested at first. However, she takes the modelling job when she learns from photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) that it would involve a trip to Paris, which would give Jo a chance to attend a lecture by her idol, philosopher Emile Flostre (Michel Auclair). As she and Dick embark on a series of photo shoots around the city, they begin to develop romantic feelings for one another. Will Jo's passion for philosophy affect her commitment to her work and to Dick?
