I always liked Audrey Hepburn. For some unknown reason I was thinking of her a couple of days ago. What a beautiful woman, with a sophistication and style all her own. Here is a short bio about her from Wikipedia:
Audrey Hepburn is an actress British , born Edda (or Audrey ) Kathleen Ruston on May 4 1929 in Ixelles ( Belgium ), died January 20, 1993 in Tolochenaz ( Switzerland. She was nominated four times for Oscars. In 1999 , the American Film Institute and has distinguished itself as the third greatest actress of all time in the ranking behind Katharine Hepburn , with whom she has no relationship, and Bette Davis . She had a strong commitment to humanitarian causes. She was Ambassador of UNICEF between 1988 and 1992 and its work is now continued by the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund , a charity founded in 1994 , a year after her death from cancer of the appendix.
My favorite Audrey Hepburn movies, in no particular order are:
Charade, Two for the Road, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Roman Holiday, Wait Until Dark, Sabrina and Love in the Afternoon.
I have watched each of those movies a number of times.
I know you have seen the movie Moon River a bunch of times but check at this You Tube clip of Ms. Hepburn singing Moon River. Its delightful.
