BIOGRAPHY

Audrey Hepburn's reign as Hollywood's storybook princess lasted 15 years, long enough for her to be made a paradigm of sparkling charisma and class. From a traumatic youth in Nazi-occupied Europe, Hepburn effortlessly charmed her way into the hearts of producers, directors, co-stars and movie-goers alike, earning no less than drama's highest-profile honor for her first major film outing, "Roman Holiday" (1953). She seemed to define irrepressible, from her "Sabrina" (1954) through her deceptively sweet call girl in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) to her heartwarming rags-to-riches Eliza Doolittle in the film version of one of the last old school hit musicals, "My Fair Lady" (1964) to even late in her life when traveled the world as a high-profile spokeswoman for UNICEF. Her legacy on screen and off would be that of someone disarmingly defying her "place" and pedigree, transcending them, and in the process, becoming that rare movie star who men wanted to be with and women concurrently wanted to be.
