5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and chic, Feb. 22 2007

Audrey Hepburn was -- and remains -- the perfect illustration of elegance and sophistication in Hollywood. A lot of actresses have tried to imitate her look, but they couldn't manage the same onscreen grace and skill.

And the "Audrey Hepburn Collection" brings together three of the films that helped shape that image. Okay, they're not her most impressive. But all three are all funny, charming, romantic movies, and they are also the ones that Hepburn is still best known for doing.

Bored young Princess Ann (Hepburn) goes on a "Roman Holiday," when she gets upset, is sedated by a doctor, and has an odd reaction to it. Soon she has wandered out of the palace and into the streets of Rome, where she is found by struggling American journalist Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck). Since she appears to be drunk, he takes her home.

When Joe realizes that he has the missing princess in his apartment, he takes her on a whirlwind tour of Rome, with his pal taking photographs for a full article. But he doesn't count on falling in love with Ann. And Ann has a tough choice to make -- should she give up her royal life and stay with Joe, or fulfil her responsibilities as a princess?

"Sabrina" (Hepburn) is the daughter of the chauffeur at the palatial Larabee estate. She's also in love with the ne'er-do-well second son, David (William Holden), but is sent away to Paris to attend a cooking school. And with the help of a fairy godcount, she gains sophistication, ambition, and confidence... as well as the ability to make a souffle properly ("A woman unhappily in love, she forgets to turn on the oven!").

When she returns to the Larabees' estate, David is instantly smitten. But even if marrying a chauffeur's daughter were okay with his family, his brother Linus (Humphrey Bogart) has arranged a business marriage for David. And to make sure David doesn't run off with Sabrina, Linus begins wooing her too... and falling in love for real.

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is a daily ritual for Holly Golightly, a social butterfly who hosts parties, entertains drunken men, and dreams of owning a horse farm in Mexico. When Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into a neighboring apartment -- courtesy of his rich patroness -- he is instantly enchanted by the ditzy, sweet-natured Holly.

But for all Holly's fun, Paul starts to realize that all is not well with her. She's desperate to marry rich, visits a notorious gangster, and hides that she was an illiterate teen bride. As Holly's life starts to deteriorate, Paul sets out to show her what her life will be like without real love.

Yes, they are all romantic comedies, completely unrelated except that all three have Audrey Hepburn. But all three are fun, well-written ("You can't live here! I live here!" "Hi, neighbor!"), and charming. They're good for daydreaming as well, since they take place in chic apartments, palatial mansions and the streets of Rome.

The movies are definitely romantic -- one theme they share is love that doesn't come easily, whether the problem is one of the people involved, parents or overprotective staff. There's also slapstick comedy (like David sitting down on champagne flutes and injuring his butt), and more sophisticated comedy (like when Anna and Joe pretend that they were speeding on their way to get married).

Unlike many actresses, Hepburn's best-known roles were NOT all alike, nor were they all carbon copies of her. Even when we shouldn't really like the characters, she gave them warmth, sensitivity and likability that can't be faked. And she could be very funny too -- it's hard not to laugh when Holly yells "Timber!", as a drunken guest keels over.

The Audrey Hepburn Collection is the ideal trio of movies for people who are just falling in love, or who appreciate a good romantic comedy. Charming, cute and sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, May 7 2009

This review is from: The Audrey Hepburn Collection (Breakfast at Tiffany's / Roman Holiday / Sabrina) (DVD)
As a rabid Audry Hepburn fan, I was pleased to find a 3 volume set of Hepburns' best. The presentation is good, and the film quality is high.

Fans of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" "Roman Holiday", and "Sabrina" should seek this out. It is very interesting, that in "Breakfast", the character of Holly Golightly is a gold digger, yet she sparkles with star power. We wondered how Truman Capote arrived at the name Golightly, and recently I met a young man from Utah whose last name was the same. He commented that it is a famly joke that his grandfather met Capote once. "Holiday" and "Sabrina" are marvelous, with Peck and Bogart providing equal star power to a powerful Hepburn. After watching both Sabrina films, I am not sure which is better. Certainly, Harrison Ford is our generations' Humphrey Bogart.

Great set, great value.

This review is from: The Audrey Hepburn Collection (Breakfast at Tiffany's / Roman Holiday / Sabrina) (DVD)
A great combination of movies. My favorite of the three was Roman Holiday. These are classic movies that I wanted to be able to pass around to my family and to future generations who may not be familiar with how these times were. The ultimate collection of Audrey Hepburn, some of her greatest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous deal, July 5 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Before I found this, I was about to go out and buy the blu-ray version of Breakfast at Tiffany's for $27. This version of Breakfast at Tiffany's is full screen and stunningly clear. Sabrina and Roman Holiday were delightful extras. The fact that it came in 3 separate dvd's was great, as well.

The only problem is I found this on another site. It did not come up when I typed "Breakfast at Tiffany's" on the Amazon site. Maybe they will update that.

Great deal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Audrey's earlier works, Jan. 2 2010
By 
This review is from: The Audrey Hepburn Collection (Breakfast at Tiffany's / Roman Holiday / Sabrina) (DVD)
Audrey is certainly a charming lady. It seemed like she could fit in every role.

In Breakfast at Tiffany, Audrey does a fine job in building her fashion icon.

In Sabrina, Audrey brings out the dreams that young girls often dream of.

In Roman Holiday, Audrey brings out her accent and charm for the princess role. Gregory Peck is a charming gentleman. Simple story, but I kept saying "no, please don't move on yet" because I knew what will happen and I just didn't want it to end.
All three works were remarkable. Roman Holiday being the most amazing one. You get to see Rome in black and white. It's so charming.

5.0 out of 5 stars A meager collection, but, Sept. 1 2008

As corny as it sounds, I have a special spot in my heart for this here Audrey collection, because it was the first Audrey DVD collection ever given to me- it's what started it all! Though it may be scant as this isn't even a quarter of all of her movies, it does justice with these memorable DVD's.

The cover for the box set is beautiful, with pictures of her as Sabrina, Princess Anne, and Holly Golightly on each of it's face. No matter what side faces forward on your shelf, it's going to look beautiful! I would indubitably by this set when starting a collection before I would buy those three DVD's on their own.
