Synopsis

Collection of six of Audrey Hepburn's most celebrated film roles. Adapted from the Truman Capote novella, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961) sees Hepburn in her archetypal role as dizzy call-girl Holly Golightly, trying not to fall for George Peppard's failed writer in New York. The musical romantic comedy 'Funny Face' (1957) sees Hepburn playing alongside Fred Astaire to the music of Gershwin as a young bookshop clerk transformed into an international fashion model. In 'Paris When it Sizzles' (1964), Hepburn plays a secretary hired to help alcoholic writer Richard Benson (William Holden) finish up a screenplay for a Hollywood producer, with only two days until the end of his deadline. 'My Fair Lady' (1964) is Lerner and Loewe's seminal musical version of George Bernard Shaw's 'Pygmalion'. Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison), an expert in phonetics, accepts the challenge of transforming common Cockney flowergirl Eliza Dolittle (Audrey Hepburn) into a lady through elocution lessons. For her Hollywood debut, 'Roman Holiday' (1953), Hepburn won an Academy Award as Princess Anne, the bored royal who absconds from her duties and meets up with Gregory Peck's American ex-pat journalist. Finally, Billy Wilder directs Hepburn in 'Sabrina' (1954) as the shy daughter of a wealthy family's chauffeur, who returns from two years in Paris as a sophisticated young woman.
