The Princess is Audrey Hepburn. The story goes that Greg Peck insisted on her getting equal star billing. It was intended as his vehicle; it becomes hers. And not just because she's so lovely, but also because she's such a deft comedian.
A gentle, charming little movie- bitter-sweet- but with pertinent things to say about royalty and the media. There's a paparazzo in it- only the term hadn't been coined yet. The sequence in which the Princess takes off recklessly on a vespa with the photographer in pursuit is prescient.
How long before Hollywood orders up a remake?
