The Top 5 Audrey Hepburn Films

This has been an attribute suggestion I’& rsquo; ve been kicking around for a while, as well as the only continuous with it has actually been the subject for the very first one.

Audrey Hepburn had a movie career that covered five years as well as contained 27 films.

She was not just very skilled and magnificently, yet even more notably she was a modest and sensible class act that was able to bow out of the spotlight to be a household lady and humanitarian.

Her movies remain timeless, and also many ranking amongst the very best from the “& ldquo; Golden era of Hollywood.”

& rdquo; For the sake of this opinion item, I must state however that I have actually not seen every Audrey Hepburn film. Still, I’& rsquo; ve seen a good lots of, as well as these are the ones I find to be her ideal.

You are naturally encouraged to speak up in the comments with your own positions. I look forward to seeing what we agree and disagree on.

Without more ado, allow’& rsquo; s kick off the countdown with the 5th finest Audrey Hepburn film.

The Religious woman’& rsquo

; s Tale After leaving an affluent Belgian family to become a nun, Sibling Luke deals with her dedication to her vows throughout dilemma, dissatisfaction, as well as The second world war.

For whatever factor, “& ldquo; The Religious woman & rsquo; s Story & rdquo; appears to be one of the more underrated Hepburn motion pictures for a great deal of people today although that it was rather effective throughout its launch.

Maybe due to the fact that it’& rsquo; s a dramatization and also her more prominent movies were constantly charming funnies (and also a couple of musicals also). It might be a tad too long as well at virtually 2 and also a fifty percent hrs.

Still, I believe Audrey’& rsquo; s efficiency as Sis Luke is just one of her ideal.

It’& rsquo; s an effective movie, and one that certainly isn & rsquo; t as “& ldquo; enjoyable & rdquo; as the following couple of on the

list. If you place & rsquo; t seen this movie, based upon a novel of the exact same name which subsequently is based upon a real story, then you ought to do so.

Morning meal At Tiffany’&

rsquo; s A young New york city socialite becomes curious about a boy that has actually relocated right into her apartment building.

“& ldquo; Morning meal At Tiffany & rsquo; s & rdquo; is Audrey & rsquo; s most legendary movie. It & rsquo; s the timeless where she was THE celebrity. And also make no mistake regarding it, it IS an excellent as well as timeless standard.

This is a bit of unusual one for me, because in spite of her appeal being on full display throughout, Audrey’& rsquo; s character is kinda unlikable (to me) for suitable chunks of the movie.

It’& rsquo; s not also her smoking cigarettes as well as alcohol consumption (which aren’& rsquo; t things I & rsquo; m keen on), however rather her fascination with wanting/thinking she needs to wed for cash.

It’& rsquo; s a concern with her insaneness right approximately the actual end when she ultimately sees what is right before her (after lastly being, as well as truly so, scolded by the guy who enjoys her).

All points thought about, this was a really strong performance from Audrey (and also obviously George Peppard also).


Romance as well as thriller in Paris, as a woman is gone after by numerous men that desire a ton of money her murdered partner had swiped. Who can she rely on?

Audrey Hepburn. Cary Grant. What more needs to be said?

Anytime you can obtain a flick with this level of talent in it, a minimum of throughout that era in Hollywood, you recognize it’& rsquo; s mosting likely to be great. Both Give and also Hepburn got on top of their game in this thriller, and the twists throughout were wonderfully done.

Audrey was excellent in the “& ldquo; that can I trust? & rdquo; function, while Grant supplied an efficiency (as well as of course had the product to deal with) that allowed the visitor to continuously wonder whether he was a hero or a bad guy.

A real work of art throughout.

Roman Vacation

A bored and protected princess leaves her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome.

This was the initial Audrey Hepburn motion picture I ever watched, as well as I dare claim it is difficult to watch this and not fall in love with Audrey.

This was her first starring role, as well as the film that truly presented her to American audiences. She offered such a splendidly enjoyable performance as Princess Anne that she won the Academy Honor for Finest Starlet (in some way her only one).

Audrey oozed charm and also course in this enchanting comedy co-starring Gregory Peck (unquestionably a future subject for the Top 5 Countdown).

A film similar to this wouldn’& rsquo; t job today. That could manage such a function with the self-respect as well as appeal of Hepburn? Past that, if this were made today, both primary personalities would certainly obtain a steamy (but PG-13) sex scene their opening night together as well as it’& rsquo;d have the fairytale ending.

Thankfully this flick was made in the 1950’& rsquo; s, as well as was able to have course as well as a not commonly specified “& ldquo; pleased finishing & rdquo;(which is to claim it doesn & rsquo; t have the fairy tale finishing).

This is an absolute favorite of mine, and also if you have actually never seen an Audrey Hepburn movie, this is the one you need to start with.

Wait Till Dark

A just recently blinded lady is scared by a triad of troublemakers while they search for a heroin packed doll they think remains in her apartment or condo.

For me, this is by far Audrey’& rsquo; s best performance in a feature movie.

She excelled in enchanting funnies, like the aforementioned “& ldquo; Breakfast at Tiffany’& rsquo; s & rdquo; and also & ldquo; Roman Vacation, & rdquo; partly due to the fact that she was normally lovely.

She was not, nevertheless, blind, and yet if you didn’& rsquo; t understand any type of better then you could quickly think she was in fact blind in this movie. That takes acting skill, and also she provided in spades.

Audrey is put through the ringer in this movie, and also several folks consider it one of the most frightening movies ever made. Her efficiency was so on factor that her transition from seemingly naive and also relying on blind lady to wise, fearless and effective survivor was believable.

Audrey received an election for Finest Actress for this efficiency, and also with all due regard to the various other Hepburn (Katherine, who won for “& ldquo; Presume Who & rsquo; s Involving Dinner”& rdquo;-RRB-, need to have won.

That’& rsquo; s my take on the leading five Audrey Hepburn motion pictures. Currently I want your take.

Sound off in the comments below as well as allow me recognize where you’& rsquo;d ranking these or one you assume need to be on the checklist somewhere.
