      The best of William Wheeler, the best of Dalton Trumbo, the best of Gregory Peck, and the best of Audrey Hepburn are in this movie, and they all join forces in that black and white image that is about to disappear in 1953, leaving the last classic.

      'Roman Holiday' movie review: The two forget each other

      In this world, there is always something called eternal. Such as love, such as "Roman Holiday". Although the two lovers could not get married, Rome became the witness of their eternal love. Perhaps, every girl once had a princess complex in her heart, fantasizing that one day she would be able to wear a crown and dress, surrounded by everyone, holding the prince's hand and carrying his white head with him. But one day, a real princess got tired of the dull palace life, secretly climbed over...

      only see half

      This movie was shown by the English teacher in the third year of junior high school. I remember that the middle school entrance examination was about to take place. The English teacher said that if we got the first grade in the English test, he would show us a movie. As a result, we really got to the first grade, and the teacher had to show us a movie later, and that movie was (Roman Holiday). That was the first time we knew Audrey Hepburn, the first time we discovered the angel on earth, the...

      first touch of love

      I am familiar with this classic film, but I have never seen it, because I saw the beautiful and romantic city of Rome in the popular broadcast of Flowers and Teenagers, and I immediately watched this film while the iron was hot. How would you rate Hepburn? Eternal goddess, I think Hepburn has always been an untouchable beauty. Because it is too beautiful, I would rather not look at it, otherwise it will be dwarfed by comparison. The elegance of a princess, the cuteness of a little girl. It...

      forever hepburn

      Today, with the rapid development of the film industry, it is a miracle that black and white films can be handed down for such a long time. It well represents the peak of the past, and it also tells us that it is not the brilliant technology of the film that really touches people's hearts. It's that touch of heart.
      Roman Holiday, that day is very short and very long, it is temporary and eternal, it represents the most beautiful part of our time, and every time I think of it, I am moved as...

      The process of watching the movie is happy, and the end is melancholy. The princess is so beautiful, the reality is so cruel, and freedom certainly wouldn't be so appealing without these responsibilities that you want to get rid of. Isn't life like this, swaying in the life that I yearn and tire...

      "It Happened One Night" followed the trend. Hepburn's final performance was really good, and she deservedly won the OSCAR Best Actress that year. 1. At the beginning, it seemed that Chairman Jiang was mentioned. . . . 2. The first reporter at the last press conference seemed to be called "Hitchcock". . . . . 3. Personally, I think the last kiss goodbye in the car is very perfunctory, and it is over after a hasty touch. . . ....
