Audrey Hepburn's Oscar winning performance in her first starring role. Roman Holiday was nominated for ten Academy Awards, and Audrey Hepburn captured an Oscar for her portrayal of a modern-day princess, rebelling against the royal obligations, who explores Rome on her own. She meets Gregory Peck, an American newspaperman who, seeking an exclusive story, pretends ignorance of her true identity. But his plan falters as they fall in love. Eddie Albert contributes to the fun as Peck's carefree cameraman pal. Stylishly directed by William Wyler, this romantic comedy ranks as one of the most enjoyable films of all times.

Audrey Hepburn is a pretty princess with lovely clothes. She shares her frustration at schedules, being waited on, routines, and so on. When the good dr gives her a shot of something that will make her happy and relaxed, she has enough energy to go out and tour Rome. Yet as the shot kicks in, she ends up asleep on a bench in Rome. That is when Gregory Peck comes along.
With visions of money in his head, he takes Princess Ann on a tour of Rome. They ride a scooter, smoosh into a car with a friend, go dancing, and more and more. And along with them comes a friend, someone who is actually a photographer. The plan is to let Princess Ann lead the way and 'slum' it on the streets of Rome, take lots of pictures, and sell the story for lots of money.
During the course of this adventure, Joe Bradley, the reporter and Princess Ann fall in love. Princess Ann is forced to choose her duties as a princess or a life with Joe Bradley. She decides that she must go back and be a princess as her country was worried about her.
This is such a bittersweet, darling, fun movie. The final interview is what pulls it all together in the end. My favorite part is the one that Gregory Peck Ad libbed. The laughter and shock in the moment really shines through.
