Cast | Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Eddie Albert
This gorgeous, sparkling fairytale is full of charm and innocence and wonderfully played by its leads, Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. Hepburn is Ann, a touring European princess overwhelmed by her stifling schedule, who takes off for the night in Rome. When a sedative she took kicks in, she falls asleep on a park bench and is found by American reporter Joe (Gregory Peck) who takes her back to his apartment for safety. At work the next morning, he finds out her regal identity and bets his editor he can get an exclusive interview with her: but romance soon gets in the way.
“A modern fairytale […] A lovely film.” ***** Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
