Audrey's face

One of a kind to say the very least, Audrey Hepburn came to Hollywood, skinny, with bushy eyebrows and rat-gnawed bangs-- yet she changed the definition of class and glamour for a generation and the effects can still be seen today. But Audrey was not a fashion model. Besides a pretty face, she was a fine actress and scored hits in several romantic comedies as well as a few dramas-- overall earning five Best Actress Nominations.

Roman Holiday- Princess Anne

Audrey as Princess Anne in William Wyler's ROMAN HOLIDAY (1953), her first American film and the only role of her career for which she won an Academy Award.

Crawling around the carport in Billy Wilder's SABRINA (1954), and a poster from this romantic comedy about a chauffer's daughter who spends two years in Paris and returns to charm the two sons of her father's employer. The film featured Humphrey Bogart and William Holden as the sons. The question?-- who gets the girl, of course.

And what about that song she sings-- that French song, "La vie en rose"?

"Quand il me prend dans ses bras, il me parle tout bas. Je vois la vie en rose. Il me dit des mots d'amour, des mots de tous les jours, et ça m'fait quelque chose. Il est entré dans mon coeur, une part de bonheur dont je connais la cause. C'est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie. Il me l'a dit l'a juré pour la vie. Et dès que je l'aperçois, alors je sens en moi mon coeur qui bat."
