    Big Screen Classics: ROMAN HOLIDAY

    Roman Holiday made Audrey Hepburn a bona fide Hollywood star and won her an Oscar for Best Actress.

    She plays Princess Anne, a royal who is weary of protocol and anxious to have some fun before she is lost to "affairs of state." On a diplomatic trip to Rome, Anne escapes her royal retainers and dashes through the Eternal City.

    She happens to meet American journalist Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck), who, knowing a hot news story when he sees one, pretends that he doesn't recognize her and offers to give her a guided tour of Rome while his photographer pal Irving (Eddie Albert) attempts to sneak a photo of the princess. Naturally, Joe hopes to get an exclusive interview, and just as naturally, ends up falling in love with her.
