While Audrey Hepburn news may have suddenly come to a halt, there’s still plenty to look at here. Today I’ve uploaded four new picture galleries for you! First is a gallery of various pictures taken throughout the 1960s, from magazines, fashion shoots, candids, etc, 81 pictures at this point. Go here for the pictures.

Once again, my apologies for not posting this weekend, but there really is no news! The one thing to come in this weekend was about figure skating competitions. Apparently skater Kimmie Meissner skated to music from Sabrina for the 2007 Nationals and ended up taking first place. It’s hard to figure out which performance was the one the papers are talking about, since different sources post different pictures (either a blue or a red dress, depending on who you read), but I’ve watched both clips on You Tube and didn’t hear Sabrina soundtrack music to either — at least not the original 1954 Sabrina. Does anyone have any further information? You can read more about the Nationals and Kimmie’s performance here.
If you’ve noticed that news updates here have been a little spotty lately, now you know why. I’ve been working hard to try and get these stinking things done! So, for the 100th post, I give you 570 screengrabs from How to Steal a Million. Continue reading “How to Steal a Million screengrabs!”
A few years ago there was a fantastic Italian/English Audrey Hepburn fansite run by a wonderful young lady by the name of Sandra. She was very kind to me when The Fabulous Audrey Hepburn was just starting, and one Christmas she sent her international friends a copy of an Italian comic book called Julia. It was about a young woman who solved crimes, and the character was obviously based on Audrey. The comic itself was very good (from what I could translate — my Italian is about as rusty as can be), and it’s being turned into a PC game! An Italian development company by the name of Artematica is developing it, but no word is out yet on the plot. You can find a little more information here, and if I can get around to it, I’ll scan more of my comic for you to go through.
And a big thank you to Sandra for giving me this comic in the first place. Her site, sadly, is no longer around, but her impact on me still lingers and I’m sure she’s still the same fantastic person she was back then. Thank you, Sandy!
Time Magazine wrote their own tribute to our lovely Audrey on the 14th anniversary of her death. At first, I was wishing I had just posted their story instead of writing my own awkwardly expressed tribute, but the more I read, the more I was disgusted that this article was printed by no less than Time. While starting out as a lovely remembrance for one of the few top-notch celebrities who lived their life drama-free and managed to turn their life into something meaningful, it quickly degenerates into a crass article that you’d think was talking about Lindsay Lohan or some other tartlet that isn’t held very high in anyone’s esteem.

14 years ago today, Audrey left us. It’s hard to believe, really, especially when you see her nearly every day in some way, shape, or form. It’s nearly impossible to get away from her, when you get right down to it. From seeing her unique face stenciled on a sidewalk or mailbox to passing a girl on the street in ballet flats and capri pants, Audrey Hepburn is everywhere. Continue reading “Audrey Hepburn May 4, 1929 – January 20, 1993”
Sirius satellite radio will launch a new weekly radio show titled “Barbara Walters’ Best of the Very Best,” and for the first installment, an interview with Audrey Hepburn will be featured! The first week’s episode is about leading ladies, and besides Audrey, actress Diane Keaton and Sophia Loren (a real-life friend of Audrey’s) will also be featured. In Audrey’s interview, she confesses to falling a little in love with all of her leading men, and hopes that out of all her film roles, she would be remembered for Roman Holiday. The first episode will air Monday, January 22 from 6-7 pm EST on channel 102. For more information, go here. Continue reading “Hear Barbara Walters interview Audrey Hepburn”
There’s a new review up on The Fabulous Audrey Hepburn for The Children’s Hour, for those of you who need or like reviews. And with all the other reviews on the site, if you have seen the film or read the book, please feel free to leave your own review! I know people like hearing from other fans as to what they like and don’t like, and you really do help out. Go here for the review.
Edit: The day after I wrote this review, another one comes from AfterEllen.com! The review is a very good one, written by and for people who deal in real life with what Karen and Martha went through in The Children’s Hour. While the review does contain a couple of smaller spoilers, I would definitely recommend reading it, and I think it says a lot for the film when a reader says that it’s still one of the best gay/lesbian films around.
There’s yet another new picture book coming out on Audrey! This one, called Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s: Photographs by Howell Conant, features pictures of Audrey onset for publicity photos and candid pictures during filming of her most iconic film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The description on GermanArtBooks.com, which has the most information I can find yet, says that there are also fashion shoots, but it’s unclear if they are Tiffany’s related or not. All photos in the book were taken by Conant, who was also a good friend of Grace Kelly’s, and there is some text written by actress Leslie Caron (who was often referred to as “The Other Audrey Hepburn”). And here is the release information for various countries — at least as much as I could find at this time: Continue reading “"Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s" — a new book!”
Actually, maybe the headline should read “How Not To Cook Sabrina -Style,” since this article is about soufflés. We’ve long held the misconception that they’re incredibly hard to make and more delicate than eggshells, but The Chicagoist is out to prove that rumor wrong. A soufflé is sort of like a crème brûlée when it comes to ingredients and cooking, but the important part of the cooking of a soufflé is to not let it be exposed to any cool drafts while cooking or else it will collapse. (Can you tell I love to cook?) So here they give you an easier version of Martha Stewart’s chocolate soufflé recipe that it’s hard to fail on (though if you read the comments, step #2 forgets to stipulate that you are working with the egg yolks, not the whites. Big difference.) Also, cream of tartar is, in fact, important to the recipe because it stabilizes the eggs and prevents it from becoming chocolate soup. Unless you’re into that sort of thing, of course. So, without further ado, a chocolate soufflé recipe that even Sabrina Fairchild at her unhappiest couldn’t mess up.
Edit: Forgetting the cream of tartar will not, in fact, leave you with chocolate soup. I think the only way you can really get that is to pull a Sabrina and forget to turn the oven on at all. 🙂
