AUDREY HEPBURN

BLU-RAY™ COLLECTION

Three of the Award Winner’s Most Noted Films in 
One Blu-ray Collection for the First Time

Sabrina ~ Funny Face ~ Breakfast at Tiffany’s

From Warner Bros. Home Entertainment September 30

 

Burbank, Calif. June 9, 2014 – Oscar®-winning actress, fashion icon, and philanthropist 
Audrey Hepburn was a talented performer known for her beauty, elegance and grace. Often imitated, she remains an indelible symbol of Hollywood glamour.

 

On September 30, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will remember Hepburn with the debut of a Blu-ray collection containing three of her most endearing films – Funny FaceSabrina, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The latter two account for two of her five Best Actress Academy Award® nominations[1]. The other Best Actress nominations were Wait Until DarkThe Nun's Story, and Roman Holiday, for which she took home the statue. She was also honored posthumously by the Academy with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1993.

 

About Audrey Hepburn[2]

Born in 1929 in Brussels, Ms. Hepburn spent part of her youth at an English boarding school and studied at The Netherlands’ Arnhem Conservatory. After World War II, she studied ballet in Amsterdam and London and made her stage debut in 1948 in the chorus of High Button Shoes. Additional small parts on the British stage were followed by appearances in English films, including the Alec Guinness classic The Lavender Hill Mob. Soon after, she came to America to take on the title role in the Broadway production Gigi and her career took off.

 

Ms. Hepburn is one of the few actresses to win the four major performance awards -- the above mentioned Academy Award for Roman Holiday, an Emmy® (1993; Outstanding Individual Achievement - Informational Programming Gardens of the World; episode "Flower Gardens"); and Tony Award® (1954; “Ondine,” Best Actress in a Play). She also is the recipient of a Grammy (1994; Deborah Raffin, Michael Viner, producers & Audrey Hepburn for “Audrey Hepburn's Enchanted Tales”).

 

Hepburn’s other popular films include War and Peace, The Children’s Hour, The Unforgiven, Charade, My Fair Lady, Two for the Road,and They All Laughed.

 

In her later years, acting took a back seat to Hepburn’s charity work. She became a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF in the late 1980s, traveling the world on humanitarian missions to raise awareness about children in need.

 

About the Films

 

Sabrina (1954)

Sabrina is charming, humorous and aglow with some of Hollywood's greatest stars. Humphrey Bogart, William Holden and Audrey Hepburn star in a Cinderella story directed by renowned filmmaker Billy Wilder (Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot). Bogie and Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island. Bogie's all work, Holden's all playboy. But when Sabrina, daughter of the family's chauffeur, returns from Paris all grown up and glamorous, the stage is set for some family fireworks as the brothers fall under the spell of Hepburn's delightful charms.

 

Special Features:

  • Audrey Hepburn: Fashion Icon
  • Sabrina's World
  • Supporting Sabrina
  • William Holden: The Paramount Years
  • Audrey Hepburn: In Her Own Words
  • Behind the Gates: Camera
  • Paramount in the '50s

 

 

 

Funny Face (1957)

In the Academy Award-nominated classic, Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire join forces, lending their song and dance talents to the timeless musical. When a fashion magazine mogul (Kay Thompson) and her head photographer, Dick Avery (Astaire) scout out a bookstore for their next photo shoot, Dick discovers the unique face of bookseller and amateur philosopher Jo Stockton (Audrey). Whisked off to Paris, Jo is soon transformed into a global supermodel…and finds herself falling for the photographer who first notices her sunny, funny face.

  • Paramount in The 50's

Holly Golightly (Hepburn) delights audiences as the carefree ingénue searching Manhattan for dream millionaire to marry. George Peppard plays the struggling, “sponsored” young writer who gets swept away in Holly’s chaotic-yet-enchanting lifestyle. Directed by Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther, Victor/Victoria), this two-time Oscar-winning film features Henry Mancini’s honored score, as well as his and Johnny Mercer’s Academy Award-winning song, “Moon River.”

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Since I haven't yet purchased Funny Face or Sabrina, why couldn't they have mastered Roman Holiday for Blu-ray and made THAT the set.

 

Well, those who already have the first two would complain they'd have to rebuy them again to get Roman Holiday. I guess nobody wins in this scenario. But I will have those two films in some way, shape, or form on Blu-ray.

SRP on this is awesome. I didn't buy Funny Face or Sabrina, and both are currently around $17 on Amazon apiece, so this is a steal as you essentially get those two and Breakfast at Tiffany's for $10 a pop (or less).

Already have the UK region free release

Now you listen to me, I'm an advertising man, not a red herring.

Hate is a strong word for it, but I'm not a fan either.

I dunno I just do.  Something about the whole thing rubs me the wrong way (though Cat is the best part!)

That scene at the end always gets me, so emotional, that's probably because i own a cat and i like rain.

 

My cat wants me to buy Shadow of the Cat, i just don't want to give it any bad idea's so i have resisted all of it's putting her head on my shoulder and purring attempts to make me crumble, instead i let it watch Cats & Dogs again, it's not happy cos the cats keep losing to those pesky dogs, i think if they make a Cats & Dogs 3 they need to make the dogs the bad guys this time around.

Yeah that's funny.

 

On a more serious note i remember reading about that dog attack and then watching the video, pretty amazing cat, i was a bit sad though that the dog which was in reality just a puppy was being destroyed rather than being re-trained and given to more responsible owners, i don't like such a young dog which has the potential through training to become better ending up dead.

 

I like this one too.

Cheaper to buy this than get "Funny Face" and "Sabrina" individually - I may jump for this.

I wouldn't buy this just for Funny Face as WB droped pratically all the of the special features from the Centennial Collection.

Already have the UK region free release

Unfortunately, so did I.  The Sabrina in that UK set in significantly inferior to the US release and the wrong AR.

 

Good Will got mine and I repurchased.


Paramount, please release DRAGONSLAYER on Blu-ray
