Roman Holiday was nominated for ten Academy Awards, and Audrey Hepburn captured an Oscar for her portrayal of a modern-day princess, rebelling against the royal obligations, who explores Rome on her own. She meets Gregory Peck, an American newspaperman who, seeking an exclusive story, 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.

Classic comedy - Roman Holiday review by PV

Spoiler Alert

This is almost 65 years old but is still a charming, funny movie.

Great actors in this fairytale - a spin on the old story of a royal living amongst ordinary people. Supposedly based on a story by soon-to-be-blacklisted screenwriter Trumbo, but a VERY old story actually.

For those who know Rome, this is a joy - you can see Rome in the early 1950s, before all the cars, graffiti, African immigrants. A lost world really - in a time they allowed kids to clamber all over the Trevi Fountain!

Silly, fun and charming - this is a fairy tale film to warm the cynical heart.

Still enjoyable - Roman Holiday review by George

Spoiler Alert

This is an old film, which we much enjoyed when it was first shown. Watching it now we wondered whether it was still going to be enjoyable. At first we doubted it, as the first half is so slow, but the second part more than made up for that and we were very pleased that we had added it to our list.

George Roby.

Thoroughly pleasing and amusing. - Roman Holiday review by BP

Spoiler Alert

Having seen Spartacus, then Trumbo, we were interested to follow up the film for its connection with the scriptwriter's political troubles during the McCarthy era.

We were rewarded with a thoroughly amusing piece of lighthearted entertainment which made us both feel happy. One we'd happily watch again sometime.
