Audrey Hepburn: The Magic of Audrey

Hepburn, Audrey: The Magic of Audrey

Audrey Hepburn remains an enduring icon of elegance and taste, whether through her famous films Breakfast at Tiffany's, Roman Holiday, and My Fair Lady; or through her various charities, which she supported right up until her death from colon cancer in 1993. In many ways, her story reads like a fairy tale. She was born in Brussels, Belgium, on the 4th of May, 1929, into a well-to-do family with aristocratic connections. She studied ballet before moving into acting where, seemingly overnight, the young girl from the chorus line became an award winning screen star and a worldwide sensation. As in most fairy tales, Audrey's story had a dark side. Her father left the family and her mother moved them to Holland in the early 1930s as Europe was besieged by Hitler's Germany. The horrors of war stayed with Audrey, and she used her experiences to help others in need through her charity work for UNICEF. In the end, she was as well-known for her compassion as she was for her creative spirit. Produced by Switch International. 2013 SCA 60 min.
