AUDREY HEPBURN: UP CLOSE & PERSONAL
February 4-25, 2023 • Every Saturday at 11am.
Four timeless classics starring one of the screen’s most legendary actresses introduced and hosted by film scholar Elliot Lavine!
Saturday, February 4:
CHARADE (1963) This exciting romantic thriller, very much in the Hitchcock mode, paired Audrey with Cary Grant and it resulted in one of her most popular films. Her amazing co-stars are Walter Matthau, James Coburn, and George Kennedy. Henry Mancini’s memorable score is a plus! Directed by Stanley Donen. 114 mins.
Saturday, February 11:
ROMAN HOLIDAY (1953) The film that put Audrey Hepburn on the map; she won an Oscar for her portrayal of a young princess who yearns for the simple pleasures of life and love. Co-starring Gregory Peck, Eddie Albert. Directed by William Wyler. 119 mins.
Saturday, February 18:
FUNNY FACE (1957) Audrey teams up with Fred Astaire in this exuberant musical, loosely based on the persona of fashion photographer Richard Avedon, who turns our reluctant heroine into a top model in Paris. Lavish production design and a great Gershwin score make this an unforgettable experience. Co-starring Kay Thompson. Directed by Stanley Donen. 103 mins.
Saturday, February 25:
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S (1961) Probably the film most closely associated with the star. She shines most luminously as Holly Golightly, the heroine of Truman Capote’s novella, here modified to mollify the censors. Nevertheless, the film strikes many honest, emotional chords, creating in the end one of the most perfect love stories to come out of Hollywood. Co-starring George Peppard, Patricia Neal, and Buddy Ebsen. Directed by Blake Edwards. 115 mins.
