Roman Holiday


Staring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday is a 1953 romantic comedy directed and produced by William Wyler. Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance; the screenplay and costume design also won.

In the 1970s, both Peck and Hepburn were approached with the idea of a sequel, but the project never came to fruition. The film was remade for television in 1987 with Tom Conti and Catherine Oxenberg, who herself came from a European royal family.
