Roman Holiday stars Audrey Hepburn in her Oscar-winning performance as a modern-day princess, rebelling against her royal obligations, who dares to explore Rome on her own. She meets Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck), an American newspaperman, who seeks an exclusive story. He pretends ignorance of her true identity, but his plan falters as they fall in love. Eddie Albert contributes to the fun as Peck's carefree cameraman pal. This beloved romantic comedy, stylishly directed by William Wyler (Funny Girl, Ben-Hur), was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won three: Best Actress (Hepburn), Best Writing (Dalton Trumbo) and Best Costume Design for B&W (Edith Head).
