Roman Holiday

Filmed on location in Rome, Roman Holiday garnered an Academy Award for the 24-year-old Audrey Hepburn. On a diplomatic visit to Rome, Princess Anne (Hepburn) escapes her royal retainers and scampers incognito through the Eternal City. She meets American journalist Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck), who, recognizing a hot news story, pretends that he doesn’t recognize her and offers to give her a guided tour of Rome.

The short film Trevi (Corey Shaff and Richard P. Rogers, 1988, 17 minutes) precedes the screening.
