DVD REVIEW: Roman Holiday – The Centennial Collection

Roman Holiday is Audrey Hepburn film debut, she co-starred with Gregory Peck in a romantic comedy about a modern-day Princess and an American newspaperman who fall in love. It’s absolutely amazing that Hepburn won an Oscar for this role.

There are several extra featurettes about Audrey’s biography. All in all these extras will last a couple hours at most. One of the videos is carried over straight from the 2002 DVD release.

This collection includes:
Audrey Hepburn: The Paramount Years
Remembering Audrey
Rome with a Princess
Dalton Trumbo: From A-List to Blacklist
Restoring Roman Holiday
Behind the Gates: Costumes
Paramount in the ‘50s- Retrospective Featurette

This film is very enjoyable to watch. Some of the shots of Rome and its landmarks look fantastic. Audrey Hepburn was delightful, and this was one of Gregory Peck’s better films.
