All in all this's as good as I can get.
Jenny
Ms. Hepburn possessed a bewitching, almost regal femininity with her soft, cultured voice and sleek, sensuous beauty.
Steve R.
This creepy theme by Mancini reflects the atmosphere of the film and shows how frightened Hepburn's character was.

I'm gratefully delighted to find this CD. This collection of sound tracks, music and songs from some of Audrey's best movies served well as remembrance. My fave of course is "Moon River". Touching and significant. Audrey may not had the best vocal but she sang it with her heart and soul. That's touches me. Her version was the only one I love because only she could bring out it's essence. Who can forget "Breakfast at Tiffany's" when she sang it sitting outside her window drying her hair........
With these sound tracks, I can listen to Audrey while driving, in the comfort of an easy chair,lazing in bed and retrospect with it as background. What so great about this CD was that it helped me to visualise those scenes and magical moments from their respective movies. The saddness of "Nun Story" to the upbeat melody from "My Fair Lady". Audrey's Classic movies deserved to be remembered and this CD stored the spirits of them. My only complain is it should be a full extensive movie soundtracks of all of Audrey's films.
All in all this's as good as I can get. I will cherish it. In loving memory of Audrey Hepburn... She was kind,graceful,charismatic,classy,talented,charming,and with a heart of gold. She was a great asset to the film industry She'll be remembered forever.

I love the cd. If you're a fan you'll probably like all the music anyway, but the best part is the version of Audrey Hepburn singing "Moon River." That alone made it worth the price for me.

Audrey Hepburn was a versatile actress with an extraordinary range. She could portray spiritual conflict in "The Nun's Story," elegant sophistication in "Breakfast at Tiffany's," dramatic vulnerability in "Wait Until Dark," and whimsical comedy in "My Fair Lady." This CD captures, with impeccable quality, the musical gifts of composers like Henry Mancini, Frederick Loewe, John Barry, Nelson Riddle, and John Williams who accentuated her interpretive talents. The music of these masters evokes the spirit, charm, and romance of many of her finest films.
Ms. Hepburn possessed a bewitching, almost regal femininity with her soft, cultured voice and sleek, sensuous beauty. It is fitting that the encore piece in this ensemble is Audrey's own endearing version of "Moon River." No actress will ever capture the heart nor the imagination quite like Audrey Hepburn...

Audrey Hepburn was a great actress and a wonderful person with a beautiful character. When you see one of her movies, the charm of Hepburn and her way of acting give the film a certain atmosphere. Next to Hepburn's acting and charm, there was another thing that helped the films creating a certain mood and feeling. Yes, the music.

In 1993, a few months after Hepburn's death, this lovely CD was released with great themes and music pieces from Hepburn's films. Although it is sad that none of her own singing from the film "Funny Face" is included, you still get the grand luxury of hearing Hepburn's voice on this music collection at the last track.
This music is connected to Hepburn. And when you listen to it, you can see her in front of you, bringing back the memories of those fine moments watching her on the screen.
Now let's see what every track brings:

1. Breakfast at Tiffany's: Moon River - Henry Mancini --- The perfect way to start this CD. This beautiful theme from the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is pure magic. When you hear the tones you can immediately see Hepburn standing on that empty New York street, wearing that lovely black dress while she is gazing into the windows of the jewellery store Tiffany & CO.
This theme gives shivers down my spine and remains one of the most beautiful themes ever written.
Length: (2:40)

2. Charade: Main title - Henry Mancini --- Charade is a movie that was introduced to people in previews and trailers back in 1963 as a mix of Suspense, Romance and Comedy. When you hear this great theme by Mancini you can hear those three ingredients clearly. The fear the main character has, the love she encounters and of course the fun.
Length: (2:07)

The songs that you find in this cd are from some of her most memorable movies. Personally, the best song is the last one of Audrey singing "Moon River".

This posthumous tribute to the ethereal Ms. Hepburn begins with the gloriously cool "Moon River" from 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', sounding resplendant with Henry Mancini and his studio singers. But that proves to be a peak difficult to top. The producers of this CD picked Mancini's opening theme to "Charade" and not the ballad version with the lyrics(big mistake), and none of Hepburn's "Funny Face" vocals are present. They seemed intent on spotlighting just the opening titles music, and this leaves a lot of great vocal music out in the cold. The photos and liner notes almost make this worth having, yet the crowning achievement is Hepburn's movie-track vocal on "Moon River" at the finale. Unavailable any place else, they made sure fans would buy this on the basis of this inclusion alone.
