NOTES

Received Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1992

Hepburn was one of only eight individuals (Rita Moreno, Mel Brooks, Helen Hayes, John Gielgud, Richard Rodgers, Marvin Hamlisch and Mike Nichols are the others) to have won all four of the major entertainment awards (Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy) in competition.

"I myself was born with an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give it. That's what I'd like to think maybe has been the appeal. People have recognized something in me they have themselves--the need to receive affection and the need to give it." --Audrey Hepburn, from The New York Times, April 22, 1991.

"It was no accident that Miss Hepburn so often played Cinderella. That fairy tale suited her own life, as a child of Belgian, Dutch and English heritage (hence the distinctive, unidentifiable accent) who emerged from the Nazi-coccupied Netherlands to become a dancer, model and bit player. The writer Colette was the fairy godmother who saw in this radiant ingenue the makings of her own heroine, Gigi, and insisted Miss Hepburn play the role on stage. For the first of many times, she was transformed ever so appropriately from duckling to swan." --Janet Maslin in The New York Times, April 21, 1991.
