The Academy Award-winning Roman Holiday*, now 67 years old, manages to charm and warm and conjure as many smiles today as it did back in 1953. A testament to the stars aligning so magically. I suppose those stars align like that on any legendary collaborative art, but there is something so bewitching about the result here. The scene where Bradley and Princess Ann first meet, with Peck’s perfectly gentlemanly response and Hepburn’s sleepy, drunk-like meandering as she is shuffled from a public bench to the safety of Bradley’s apartment is still one of the most fun and well-timed sequences there is. Very highly recommended.
