Roman Holiday review

It was first time lucky for Audrey Hepburn at the Oscars, bagging Best Actress for her breakout role in this evergreen 1953 William Wyler romcom. 

Wide-eyed and winsome, Hepburn plays Ann, bored princess of an unnamed country. 

Gregory Peck is the wily journalist who, determined to get a scoop, takes incognito ‘Anya’ on a tour of Rome, the eternal city giving her a new lease of landmark-gawping life. 

Hepburn and Peck revel in their shared duplicity but almost take a backseat to the splendour of the Italian capital, which has rarely been given so much lens-love since.
