Mi-a fost dintotdeauna draga Audrey Hepburn, inca de la primul film in care am vazut-o, Weekend la Tifanny...Si n-am fost singura, talentul si dragalasenia ei au cucerit o lume si i-au adus multime de premii...Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, si Tony, fiind printre putinele persoane care au avut asemenea realizari. Si daca ar fi numai atat...dar activitatea ei ca "Ambasador de Buna Vointa" in cadrul UNICEF a fost extraordinara...
Una dintre prietenele mele coreene de pe fb o apreciaza f mult si a descoperit un blog unde cineva a facut o calatorie la Roma pe urmele unui film in care protagonisti au fost Audrey Hepburn si Gregory Peck, Roman Holiday sau Vacanze Romane... Mi-am propus sa-l vad (daca nu cumva nu l-am vazut deja si am uitat) de aceea voi insera aici linkul catre You Tube.
Am copiat explicatia de la videoclip dar rog prietenele care nu stiu engleza sa ma scuze, nu o voi traduce:
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
Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; 4 May
1929 -- 20 January 1993) was a British actress and humanitarian. Hepburn
was ranked as the third greatest female screen legend in the history of
American cinema and a place in the International Best Dressed List Hall
of Fame. She was active during the Hollywood's Golden Age.
in Ixelles, a district of Brussels, Hepburn spent her childhood between
Belgium, England and the Netherlands, including German-occupied Arnhem
during the Second World War, where she studied ballet with Sonia Gaskell
in Amsterdam before moving to London in 1948 to continue ballet
training with Marie Rambert and perform as a chorus girl in West End
musical theatre productions.
After appearing in several British
films and starring in the 1951 Broadway play Gigi, Hepburn played the
Academy Award-winning lead role in Roman Holiday (1953). Later
performing in successful films like Sabrina (1954), The Nun's Story
(1959), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Charade (1963), My Fair Lady
(1964) and Wait Until Dark (1967), Hepburn received Academy Award,
Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations and accrued a Tony Award for her
theatrical performance in the 1954 Broadway play Ondine. Hepburn remains
one of few people who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards.
appeared in fewer films as her life went on, devoting much of her later
life to UNICEF. Although contributing to the organisation since 1954,
she worked in some of the most profoundly disadvantaged communities of
Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. She was awarded
the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her work as a UNICEF
Goodwill Ambassador in late 1992, but a month later, aged 63, Hepburn
died of appendiceal cancer at her home in Switzerland in early 1993.
dedicated her last five years to this unending humanitarian work,
traveling throughout the developing world on behalf of UNICEF and
presenting to the rest of the world a provocative vision of children in
pain, struggling to survive, or just fighting for basic human rights.
1994, the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund was created by her sons, Sean
and Luca, and long time companion, Robert Wolders, in order to continue
Today, the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund supports many
organizations around the world dedicated to helping improve the lives
of children through various programs and initiatives.
