Iconic film: Roman holiday (1953)

Pin It



Hacía días que no os hablaba de cine así que esta semana empezamos con una película que seguro la mayoría de vosotras  habéis visto (¡y si no hacerlo ya!): Vacaciones en Roma.

Dirigida en 1953 por Billy Wilder y protagonizada por Gregory Peck y Audrey Hepburn, narra la historia de Anya (Hepburn) una joven princesa que durante una visita oficial a Roma decide fugarse de palacio y descubrir la ciudad por sí misma. En su aventura conoce a  Joe Bradley (Peck) un reportero americano que trabaja para el Daily American en Roma.  Él en un principio no la reconoce pero cuando lo hace decide realizar un reportaje con fotos exclusivas con la ayuda de su amigo Irving Radovich (Eddie Albert). Durante su excursión se suceden un sinfín de anécdotas y situaciones divertidas, pero finalmente dos agentes del Gobierno la encuentran y Anya tiene que volver a palacio a pesar del amor que siente por Joe…

Este fue el primer papel importante de Audrey Hepburn y el que le dio la fama mundial (y no el de Sabrina como muchos creen). De hecho ella ganó el Oscar a mejor actriz  y la película consiguió otros 2 de los 7 Oscars a los que estaba nominada (mejor vestuario – diseñado por la inconfundible Edith Head – y mejor guión).

¡Una película que no os podéis perder y menos si sois fans de Audrey!

¿Ya la habéis visto chicas?
¡Feliz lunes y gracias por vuestros comentarios!


I haven't talked about cinema for a while so today we’ll begin the week with a film that I’m sure you all watched 8and if not please do it!!): Roman Holiday

Directed in 1953 by Billy Wilder and starred by Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, it tells the story of  Anya (Hepburn) a young princess that during an official visit to Rome decides to escape from palace and discover the city on her own.  During her adventures she meets Joe Bradley (Peck) an American reporter working for the Daily American in Rome. At first he didn’t recognize her but  when he does he decide to write an article full of unexpected photographs of the princess with the help of friend Irving Radovich (Eddie Albert). During her trip she lives an amount of funny situations and nice moment sabut at the end she must return to palace, although she has fell in love with Joe…

This was the first important role of Audrey Hepburn and the one that launched her to stardom (instead of Sabrina as many people think!). In fact she won the Academy Award for Best Actress and the film won other 2 out 7 nomination Awards (best costume design – created by the amazing Edith Head and best screenplay)  

A film that you can’t miss, particularly if you’re Audrey’s fans!!!

Have you watched it?
Happy Monday and thanks for your comments!!









I love her new hair style!!

  1. Vacaciones en Roma es toda una maravilla del 7º Arte, como todo lo que hacía el genia Willy Wilder.
    Gegory Peck estaba guapísimo y Audrie espectactular, como siempre, comiéndose la pantalla.
    Así que os haga la misma recomendación que este blog: quien no haya visto esta película, NO SE LA PUEDE PERDER!

  14. Audrey Hepburn is my favourite actress. She is so beautiful, glamourus and classy. Roman Holiday is one of my favourite films, but I think the best is the Breakfast at Tiffany's.
    Love your blog, and I follow you. :)

    ALGO TORMENTOSA PARTES DE SU VIDA PERO UN CORAZON ENTREGADO EN GRAN PARTE DE SU VIDA
    GRACIAS
