Double-bill of classic Audrey Hepburn dramas. In 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961) Hepburn stars as Holly Golightly, an eccentric high-class escort working in New York. When young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard) - the kept man of a wealthy older woman - moves into Holly's apartment block, he finds inspiration when he falls in love with her. 'Roman Holiday' (1953) sees Hepburn playing Princess Anne, bored with Royal protocol while in Rome for an official engagement. Escaping from her claustrophobic entourage in order to see what life beyond the castle is like, she meets down-at-heel American reporter Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck), who is just one of many journalists vying for an interview. He realises he has a major scoop on his hands when he meets the Princess and initially pretends not to know who she is. Roping in a photographer friend, Bradley takes her on a tour of Rome over 24 hours, all the while falling more in love with her.
