In the 50’s with films like, Roman Holiday,(for which she won an Oscar), Funny Face, War & Peace and Sabrina, Audrey Hepburn leaped into leading lady status with a surge like none other. But some feel her best work was done in the 1960’s with one of the best known roles as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, or Eliza Doolitle in My Fair Lady (even though her voice was dubbed in the singing parts).
But not only was Audrey a great talent on screen, she was a great person off screen. Her work with UNICEF, made the organization a household name.
Beautiful, elegant, quaint but strong, Hollywood had very few like Audrey.
