Roman Holiday
Dove "Family-Approved"
For All Ages


Audrey Hepburn (in an Oscar-winning performance) stars as a cosseted European princess who goes AWOL in Rome and is soon taken under the wing of tabloid journalist Gregory Peck and his photographer sidekick Eddie Albert. She thinks the boys don’t suspect who she really is … but they’re clued in and sense a sensational story if they can just keep Audrey’s handlers from retrieving her too soon. The essence of 1950s chic.

Dove Review

In a world where you are told what to do every minute of the day, it might encourage some to want to go AWOL. This delightful classic takes the viewer on an adventure of one princess who takes a day off. Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn along with Eddie Albert team together to make this a family night movie. Set in the 1950s scenes of Rome as the guys take the lovely Princess on a tour she will never forget.

Classic movies are always a delight to watch because of the way things were filmed then plus the restrictions were so different than today. This classic movie is awarded the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
