“Exqusite and with a sense of innocence, Audrey Hepburn was a rare actress for her time, compared to the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Mae West. Audrey was far from the volumptuos, typical hollywood movie star, she was a pleasant, petite woman with an enchanting Anglo-European accent, big doe-like eyes, a long swan neck, demure smile, melodious voice, charismatic manner, and perfect wardrobe. Audrey was also very modest, describing herself as an actress that didn’t have much technique because she never learned to act. Her own acting technique, such as it was, simply consisted of hard work, intense concentration – and instinct.

Life. Puppies. Pillows. Smiles. If you enjoy any of these things, even intermittently, you probably like at least one film starring the lovely and talented Audrey Hepburn, who was both a committed philanthropist and a consistently charming performer. In this episode we take a look at two of her most successful films – 1961’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and 1963’s “Charade,” as well as one of her more obscure films, the 1967 thriller “Wait Until Dark.”

    Thanks for doing a show on Audrey Hepburn. I saw her in SABRINA recently and thought she was wonderful. CHARADE is one of my old favourites too, although I must admit I haven’t seen it in several years. I do remember the scene where she touches Cary Grant’s left chin and asks him how he shaves there. Adorable. She’s a real cutie pie. Thanks again!
