Audrey Hepburn 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993

There are few more illustrious stars in the history of Cinema than Audrey Hepburn, an actress known around the world for her talent and grace as much as for her charitable work. Involved with the Dutch Resistance during WWII when The Netherlands was occupied, the violence and evils she saw had a profound impact on her life and led her on a humanitarian path. Using her ballet training she picked up dancing credits in The West End after the year, which eventually led to minor roles in British films, though it wasn’t long before she won larger roles in Britain, Broadway, and finally Hollywood. Hepburn is one of a select few people who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Bafta, Oscar, and Tony awards as well as picking up multiple further nominations, and until her death she continued to perform sporadically and gain critical acclaim, while also spending time on the charities and causes she held dear.

    Audrey Hepburn was a true legend 🙂 Aside from Two for the Road, did you ever see Charade? That is a great one and it has been implied as the best Hitchcock film that Hitchcock never directed. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
