(ROMAN HOLIDAY – GREAT FILM…. PLEASE WATCH  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIFo0txAvuE

WATCH FULL FILM HERE - http://www.firedrive.com/file/1T38FYT3P3MS8GSC

Roman Holiday is a 1953 romantic comedy directed and produced by William Wyler. It stars Gregory Peck as a reporter and Audrey Hepburn as a royal princess out to see Rome on her own. Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance; the screenplay and costume design also won.

It was written by John Dighton and Dalton Trumbo, though with Trumbo on theHollywood blacklist, he did not receive a credit; instead, Ian McLellan Hunterfronted for him. Trumbo’s credit was reinstated when the film was released on DVDin 2003. On December 19, 2011, full credit for Trumbo’s work was restored. Blacklisted director Bernard Vorhaus worked on the film as an assistant director under a pseudonym.

It was shot at the Cinecittà studios and on location around Rome during the “Hollywood on the Tiber” era. The film was screened in the 14th Venice film festivalwithin the official program.

In the 1970s, both Peck and Hepburn were approached with the idea of a sequel, but the project never came to fruition.

The film was remade for television in 1987 with Tom Conti and Catherine Oxenberg, who is herself a member of a European royal family. In 2012, a musical version of Roman Holiday, following the plot while using the songs of Cole Porter, was presented in Minneapolis at the Guthrie Theater. The cast included Stephanie Rothenberg as Princess Ann and Edward Watts as Joe Bradley.
