Audrey Hepburn


Very early in my marriage, possibly even before we got married – who can remember, my sweet husband was very creative with birthday gifts for me. He knew I adored Audrey Hepburn and one of my favorite gifts from him was 8 (yes, eight) Audrey Hepburn movies! You can imagine my joy and happiness receiving My Fair Lady, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Charade, A Nun’s Story, Wait Until Dark, Love in the Afternoon, Roman Holiday and Sabrina. My favorites are Love in the Afternoon,Wait Until Dark and Roman Holiday. I don’t think I know anyone who has seen Audrey in Love in the Afternoon with Gary Cooper and Maurice Chevalier or Wait Until Dark with Audrey, Alan Arkin and Richard Crenna . If you are one of these people who has not seen her in these films, I encourage you to buy yourself a gift of these movies right now. Audrey Hepburn was in 31 films in her lifetime. She was never less than marvelous. Try to see as many as you can! You will fall more in love with Audrey. I did.

    Love Audrey Hepburn
    “Charade” is one of my favorite movies, and I also love “Wait Until Dark.” “How to Steal a Million” with Peter o’toole was such a great caper film. No one wore Chanel better than Audrey. Plus she was a great humanitarian and I think she was an ambassador for UNICEF.

      Thank you so much for commenting, Gigi. I try not to write very long blog posts so that is why I left out so much about Audrey Hepburn. There is just so much about her life that was fascinating.
