I just watched another Audrey Hepburn movie, Roman Holiday. It was a good movie and her first as far as I know. The thing that I noticed was that so many movies have copied that one. Remember First Daughter with Katie Holmes and Chasing Liberty with Mandy Moore? Young woman tired of being smothered and having to be responsible all the time. Although I enjoyed both films they were not as good as Roman Holiday of course. And those movies didn’t have an ending like Roman Holiday. I mean we all expect happy endings, but sometimes that just can’t be as in Roman Holiday. Then there’s the episode of Gossip Girls entitled Roman Holiday. Can you figure out why?
I was glad to find that the entire movie was filmed in Rome and had actual Italians. A lot of times old movies just try passing people off… And I can glad say that I’ve been to some of the places showed in the film like the coliseum and the mouth of truth.
