If all this film had going for it was the sparkling chemistry between the handsome Gregory Peck and the luminously lovely Audrey Hepburn it would still earn five stars. It has more, including great Rome location shots and a nice turn by Eddie "Green Acres" Albert as Peck's good-natured, conniving buddy.

But ultimately the film belongs to Hepburn, starring here in her first major role. She is simply wonderful and she would be wonderful in many more movies to come. Audrey Hepburn had a rare quality of love, so that when she gazed adoringly at her co-star with those big and very expressive brown eyes you not only believed she loved him, you fell a little in love with him too. Even actors who seemed oddly miscast, like her "Sabrina" co-star Humphrey Bogart--with whom reportedly she did not get along--or Gary Cooper, who was just a tad too old for her in "Love in the Afternoon." (Cary Grant was born to play both those roles and proved it in 1963's charming "Charade.")

If you've never seen this movie and have wondered what all the fuss was about the late great Audrey, find a copy of "Roman Holiday" and prepare to be dazzled. There's a reason this movie has been imitated endlessly over the years.

Delightful film which was Audrey Hepburnā€™s debut and earned her an Academy Award. Beautifully filmed in Rome. Although it was a choice to film in black and white, I think that it would have worked even better in colour

This is an all around great movie. Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck were wonderful and William Wyler was a great director. The film is not dated at all, but just reflects the times it was made in. It may seem naive, but it is fresh and innocent. There are greater films of art but, you can't get much more 5 star than this.

I agree they don't, maybe can't, make movies like this anymore. Her naivete and innocence, and his kindness, would perhaps not be believable. But the chemistry between them -- that can't be faked if it isn't there. And it is there.
