New Poster For Restored Roman Holiday
Hepburn and Peck. Now with handy map!
Audrey Hepburn's Ann is back to remind us that K-Middz isn't the only game in Princesstown. The heroine of William Wyler's glorious romance Roman Holiday, restored and re-released to celebrate its 50th birthday, shares this rather lovely new promo poster with her can-they-can't-they paramour Gregory Peck and his battered Vespa.
In the mould of a fairy tale, Paramount's classic tells the story of a chance encounter between Peck's reporter and Hepburn's princess, out on a rare - and unauthorised - foray into Rome. Ann, bored by her regimented life and the suffocating attentions of her attendants, slips away and finds her capering around town with an initially oblivious hack.
There's enough chemistry between the leads to fry Beaker's circuits and Wyler keeps the gallivant through Fellini country running at a clip throughout, as love begins to bloom between them.
Roman Holiday is back in cinemas on July 19. It's not in 3D.
