By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on April 8 2003
Format: DVD
Audrey Hepburn has been remembered all throughout her career for her beauty, poise, and exceptional presence. Though she did other romantic movies, and other comedies, these three are the most alike in tone -- happy, funny, sad and always, always sweet.
"Roman Holiday" features young Princess Anna (Hepburn) who is being taken through Rome on a boring round of interviews, tours and appearances. After being given a sedative, she wanders out (intoxicated by the drug) into the Roman streets and is found by a struggling American journalist, Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck). The next morning he realizes that the intoxicated schoolgirl is the missing princess. The two of them go on a tour of Rome, where he takes a series of unique photos. But when they begin to fall in love, what will Anna choose -- her duty or her love?
"Sabrina" is perhaps the best of the three. Sabrina Fairchild (Hepburn) is the naive daughter of the Larrabee family chauffeur, hopelessly in love with the playboy David Larrabee (William Holden). But after a few years at a cooking school in Paris, the ugly duckling becomes a swan: She's beautiful, confident, poised, and David instantly falls for her. However, his family has affianced him to an heiress, and so David's brother Linus (Humphrey Bogart) tries to distance her from him. The problem is, Linus is starting to fall for Sabrina himself.
"Breakfast at Tiffany's," while not particularly faithful to the original story, is nevertheless a sweet story. A writer/kept man named Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into an apartment building, and befriends a party girl named Holly Golightly. He begins to fall for Holly, though he soon discovers that she has an obsessive older ex-husband, and is planning to marry an extremely rich man.

You can tell this package is a mixed bag just from the case covers: Sabrina is part of the "Audrey Hepburn Collection," Roman Holiday is part of the "Paramount Collection" and Breakfast at Tiffany's is part of the "Widescreen Collection." The individual packages for Sabrina and Roman Holiday feature a copyright date of 2002, but Breakfast goes all the way back to 1999. As you'd expect, this older transfer fails to measure up to the other two, both of which are in glorious black and white and look probably as good or better than the films looked at their premiers all those years ago.
First up: Roman Holiday, which according to the little sticker on the outside of the box has been "meticulously restored frame by frame." It shows! The viewer is treated to William Wyler's lush, grandiose frame composition and gorgeous lighting. Though not as jaw-droppingly beautiful as many of the shots in Sabrina, the look of Roman Holiday will leave you breathless. That's a good thing since so much time is spent, not in character or plot development, but in showing the audience the sights of Rome. One of the first films to double as a travelogue, Roman Holiday wouldn't work half so well without the sharp details and the subtle shades of blacks and greys throughout. Hepburn's character comes across as very natural and charming and Peck is a revelation. This film was shot before he was obligated to play "Gregory Peck" in every movie. Though the humor is played a little too broadly in spots, this film's a good one and the chemistry between Hepburn and Peck is wonderful. Incidental details like a taxi driver crying like a baby to communicate the Italian word "bambino" and a landlord who hauls out his old rifle to guard Hepburn's room complete a picture already delightful, subtle and moving.

Hey, I was just looking to pick up a copy of Roman Holiday, when I found that someone had packaged three of Audrey's best movies together. And I said, "Three?! Thats it??? Why not six? Oh, well...it will have to do." So I upgrade Breakfast at Tiffany's from VHS to DVD, and I finally pick up Sabrina, which, despite a small crush on Julia Ormond, I must admit is superior to the remake.
Its easy to see why Audrey Hepburn has remained such a popular film star, and why so many actresses fail miserably to be the "next" Audrey Hepburn. There was only one actress who combined the sense of innocence, sweetness, beauty, humor, grace and charm into one. And don't we all wish she had made more movies? And don't we all wish they could still make movies like the ones that Audrey starred in? No wonder she's still our favorite!
So, in chronological order...we get Roman Holiday(1953), Audrey's breakout Oscar winner where she guaranteed she would be a star, then her next movie, Sabrina(1954), which cemented her as Hollywood's sweetheart, then Breakfast at Tiffany's(1961), simply one of my favorite movies of all time. I would have liked to have seen Charade, My Fair Lady, and Funny Face included, really I would...will there be a Volume 2?? It would be quite a nice cure for the mean reds. If you haven't fallen in love with Audrey Hepburn yet, then buy this nice set and you will!

Format: DVD
If you love Audrey Hepburn and enjoy watching classic love stories of a by-gone era, get this collection. While by no means a definitive Hepburn film collection, it will give you the three most popular (and my personal favorite) DVD's, illustrating the pinnacle of Hepburn's work. If you're not that familiar with Hepburn (where have you been..?!), this is a splendid beginning for a lifetime's love affair with the classically stunning actress who stole all our hearts and made us believe in grand, Hollywood-movie style love. "Roman Holiday" is a Cinderella-type story, except Hepburn is the Princess looking for her average-Joe Mr. Right (and she doesn't do too shabbily with Gregory Peck!). "Sabrina" (this is the best version--but see the re-make with Harrison Ford & Julia Ormond to compare) is Hepburn's rags-to-riches tale come to life with the help of great actors, Bogart and Holden. The story will sweep you off your feet as you watch the tale of young girl who comes to learn the meaning of true love in the most unexpected way (I can only say SO much without giving the story away!). And, of course, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is a lovely story about a young woman who expends all her energy trying to live a glamourous & fabulous life to hide the fact that she is missing the one thing she wants most (take a wild guess what that is). Even the most jaded of you will leave these movies with a sparkle of romance ignited in you. By no means a "chick-flick" set, this is a collection not to be missed by fans and movie lovers alike. A great set--don't miss it!Read more ›
