I Heart Audrey











I really, really like Audrey Hepburn.


Like everyone else, I know she's classy and elegant and a style icon.


And I, like everyone else, wish I could dress like her.


She had tons of pretty black dresses.


Just one pretty black dress, and I'd be set for awhile.


But even without the pretty black dress, I'd be content just being her devoted fan.


Ever since I first watched My Fair Lady many, many moons ago, I've been in fandom-mode.




Then followed Roman Holiday...


and Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

This Christmas break, there'll be Funny Face.



Along with The Great Gatsby (which was...interesting)...

the three-disc set of Doris Day and Rock Hudson...



DVD, a family favorite, in Lt. Robin Crusoe...



Amadeus, which I had no idea existed until yesterday...and now it's broken.



Oh! And the ever-authentic Alamo, which I simply must watch with father dear.

I think I love old movies almost a little bit more than the ones we've got now.



You have a favorite?

As far as favorite classic movie idols go, I personally adore Miss Marilyn Monroe :)

Unfortunately, I have never seen Miss Monroe's work. Next on the list, perhaps?

I really love Roman Holiday. Good Call.

I can't believe y'all love Lt. Robin Crusoe. I did not know anyone besides me still loves this movie (Sloane loves it too now.)

The best, the very best movie ever made (in my humble opinion) is It's a Wonderful Life. If you haven't seen Harvey or Arsenic and Old Lace yet, you must. Another one I absolutely love is called You Were Never Lovelier. I do love old movies, though my favorite Hepburn is Katherine, not Audrey. LOVE her!

Jeffrey - Yes, as ridiculous as Lt. Robin Crusoe is, everyone laughed very, very hard.
Relyn - Gosh, I love both Harvey AND It's a Wonderful Life. I never ever get tired of them. As for Arsenic and Old Lace and the other Hepburn...that'll have to go on a list somewhere. :)
