(500) Films of Empire - Day 307

241 - Roman Holiday - 3 stars
When I first started watching this tale of a Princess hiding out in Rome being accompianed by a US reporter looking to get a story, I thought I was watching a European version of It Happened One Night, which has a rather similar story.
Saying that there is enough chemistry between Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn (can't believe this was only her first major performance as she lights up the screen) and Rome is stunning to look at, as it was all filmed on location.
A nice refreshing (and realistic) ending to the film helped it get some extra credit from me who was rather dubious as to how a princess and a reporter would live happily ever after.

Days remaining - 58 Films remaining - 62
