The Audrey Hepburn 7-Movie Collection will come out on Blu-ray Disc Oct. 5 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which was originally released on Oct. 5, 1961, this collection includes Hepburn in My Fair Lady, Funny Face, Sabrina, Roman Holiday, Paris When It Sizzles, War and Peace and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The collection also includes access to digital copies of each film and legacy bonus content.
Based on Truman Capote’s best-selling novella, Breakfast at Tiffany’s made an indelible impact on movies, fashion and society. In director Blake Edwards’ timeless classic, Hepburn’s New York party girl Holly Golightly embarks on an entertaining, comedic adventure to find love in the big city.
Winner of eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, My Fair Lady also won the Best Picture — Musical/Comedy Golden Globe and was selected for the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry. Adapted from the Broadway stage hit, the film stars Rex Harrison as Professor Higgins, a role that earned him the Oscar for Best Actor, and Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle.
Set against the backdrop of the timeless City of Lights, Funny Face stars Hepburn as a bookstore clerk turned modeling sensation and Fred Astaire as the photographer who discovers her. Funny Face was the only pairing of the two stars and remains a love letter to Paris in the 1950s.
Humphrey Bogart and William Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island, New York in Sabrina. They have little in common, except that they’ve both taken notice of a beautiful, sophisticated young woman, possessing a delightful zest for living, suddenly in their midst — Sabrina Fairchild (Hepburn).
Hepburn lights up the screen in her first starring role opposite the charismatic Gregory Peck in the romantic comedy Roman Holiday. Ranked as the No. 4 greatest love story of all time by the American Film Institute, it earned 10 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and won the Best Actress award for Hepburn, Best Costume Design for legendary designer Edith Head and Best Writing for Dalton Trumbo (whose family accepted the trophy decades later as he was blacklisted at the time and couldn’t take credit for writing the movie).
Hepburn reunites with William Holden in the romantic comedy Paris When It Sizzles, making its Blu-ray debut. Hepburn is Gabrielle Simpson, the captivating young assistant to screenwriter Richard Benson (Holden), who has three days to finish his movie. Together, they write and revise a romance/mystery as they envision themselves in the lead roles.
Tolstoy’s literary masterpiece War and Peace comes to life in this epic of international conflict, spectacular adventure, gripping intrigue and tragic romance set against the sweeping backdrop of Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. Directed by King Vidor, the film stars Hepburn, Henry Fonda and Mel Ferrer.
