“Roman Holiday” (1953) *

Heir to the throne Princess Anne (Audrey Hepburn) is in Rome for a Royal visit, and becoming increasingly despondent with her life of phony greetings and superficial meetings. She has an episode one night and receives a sedative, after which she sneaks from her room and wanders Rome. When he finds her out-of-sorts, news-reporter Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) kindly takes her in and offers her a couch, not knowing whom this “Anya” is. He soon learns and quickly realizes he has the biggest scoop of his life. What he does with this scoop is what we will enjoy seeing unfold.

Awf Hand gives four out of four stars and notes that this movie has a very fairy-tale feel, but does not have a fairy-tale ending; an ending that would’ve done a disservice to the rest of the script.
