5.0 out of 5 stars Hurray for Hepburn! April 24 2007
By Roman Holliday - Published on Amazon.com
Because I own almost every book published on this iconic actress, I assumed that this one would offer little new material. I was wrong. This excellent collection includes international versions of posters, previously unpublished photographs, and unknown (at least to me) pieces of information. Hepburn's Paramount films are what launched her career and this volume is a beautiful sampling of her contribution to cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of great new stuff! June 14 2007
By Joseph A. Admire - Published on Amazon.com
Like the previous reviewer, I wasn't sure when I first saw this book that there would be much new material in it, but there is! Know that the book doesn't cover Audrey's entire career, but focuses strictly, as the title indicates, on her films for Paramount. Within that parameter, no Audrey fan should be without this book in his or her library! Lots of behind-the-scene photos as well as international promo material not often seen in the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!!! Feb. 13 2008
By terroh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just when you thought, they couldnt come up with anything new about Audrey Hepburn, they do! A wonderful book chock full of stills, lobby cards, and posters from around the world documenting Audrey's Paramount years (1953-1962). For some reason War and Peace is not covered (perhaps because she wore period costumes?). But most of Audrey's most loved movies from this period are here. Roman Holiday: Sabrina; Funny Face and of course, Breakfast at Tiffanys! A must book to have for any diehard fan and even casual admirers of Audrey. Audrey still lives on thanks to those who remember her and photographed her. How lucky for us!

5.0 out of 5 stars Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years, a must have and a perfect 10! Sept. 9 2009
By Ingrid E. Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
The images alone in this book are worth it! They tell a story of her days rising to stardom and maintaining the image under the Paramount publicity vehicle.

The photo book was in excellent condition and arrived right away. I'd buy from this seller again and actually, I may buy another one, as I'm enamoured with the style and am using several images as art pieces!
