4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful documentary on a great actress 11 Mar 2009
By Vanessa R. Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a very nice, well put together documentary of Audrey Hepburn. They have so many of the great people who've worked with her and those who were her close companions. It's a really nice insight of the great actress through the eyes of her friends/co-stars. PLUS, there are many interview clips of Audrey Hepburn, herself that I have never seen before. Audrey never really enjoyed talking about her life, but when she started working with UNICEF, Audrey thought it was a good idea to put herself out in the public so attention will be drawn on UNICEF and the countries they've helped.

Though the clips and interviews with these prominent people are rare and genuine, the quality of the sound and picture fall by the way side. For this, one star was taken off of my rating, but other than that, great buy.

Recommended to: Audrey Hepburn fans and Gregory Peck fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Loverly" remembrance of a true Hollywood original 27 Feb 2011
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
There's only ever been one Audrey Hepburn. This documentary, completed with the support of Hepburn's partner Robert Wolders and narrated by Roger Moore, presents a very intimate remembrance of the movie star who was every bit as beautiful on the inside as she ever was on the screen.

Hepburn starred in some of the great Hollywood romances ("Sabrina", "Funny Face", "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and her Academy Award-winning triumph, "Roman Holiday"); but the woman behind the screen was just as fascinating. Enduring the horrific German occupation of Holland during WW2, Hepburn and her mother moved to London after the liberation, where Audrey learned that too much precious time had been lost, and she'd never fulfil her dream to become a classical ballet dancer.

Acting really just fell into her lap. Minor roles in several British films (including "The Lavender Hill Mob") led to director William Wyler plucking her almost from out of the blue to co-star opposite Gregory Peck in "Roman Holiday". Almost at the same time, she enjoyed two hits on the Broadway stage ("Gigi", "Ondine", the latter earning Hepburn a Tony Award). The rest, as they say, is history. In retrospect it seems incredible that she even made it at all! She wasn't Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Sophia Loren or Elizabeth Taylor. But she was magic all the same. And audiences adored her.

This documentary is filled with clips from many of her fondly-regarded hits (and a few rarities) plus insights from those who knew Hepburn best (friend Connie Wald, son Sean Ferrer, director Stanley Donen and former husband Mel Ferrer chief among them). A "loverly" reminder of what true movie magic is all about...and why we're all still head-over-heels in love with Audrey Hepburn.

A great companion documentary for A&E Biography's "The Fairest Lady", which is available on the DVD for How to Steal a Million.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hollywood cover story 4 Jun 2009
By A. Lathrop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
General overview without a lot of unique details. Seen it all before. However, Audrey Hepburn is a wonderful subject to visit anytime you get the chance. Try to find the A&E Biography version DVD/VHS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somethings are timeless 29 July 2013
By Carol-Ann Dearnaley - Published on Amazon.com
It was a lovely remembrance of a very fine actress and a dedicated humanitarian. A very pleasant way to spend a little over an hour on a hot, muggy late summer afternoon.
