rare insight into Audrey Hepburn

No Comments 14 July 2007

There’s a new video on You Tube from a made-for-TV biography that I don’t think I’ve ever seen. The clip that was uploaded was from a Chinese airing, but maybe it’s been aired in English-speaking countries? Either way, it’s fantastic interviews with Mel Ferrer, Henry Mancini (composer of “Moon River”), Stanley Donen (director of Funny Face and Two For the Road), and Hubert de Givenchy. It’s a really fascinating segment to watch and gives more insight into Audrey’s career and relationships with these men, you really just have to see it to appreciate it. I certainly can’t do it justice!

watch Charade for free!

A lesser-known piece of information for you: the fantastic Audrey Hepburn/Cary Grant feature Charade has actually slipped into the public domain! I don’t know how it happened, but it has, which means you technically don’t have to pay to watch or own this fantastic film. While I still recommend at least watching the Criterion Collection edition of this film with the commentary by director Stanley Donen and writer Peter Stone (those two men are hilarious!), I completely understand the $40 price tag being a little much for a lot of Audrey fans out there. In the meantime, though, you can sit in the comfort of your computer chair and watch this stylish caper completely free on You Tube:

First up, the lovely Lotta has sent us a great find. It seems that in Finland in 1955 there was an Audrey Hepburn lookalike contest, and the grand prize was a trip to Stockholm! If you can read Finnish, then there’s a short article here, and you can see a small picture of the winner. There is also a link to a short video about the contest on that page, or you can just click here. It seems that even then, everyone wanted to look like Audrey.
