HELENA GUTIERREZ’S (ADVANCED 1) RECOMMENDATION

Hi Gelo!

A few days ago was the 20th anniversary of Audrey Hepburn death. Audrey was more than a good actress; she had class, her natural grace made her become a fashion icon. But furthermore, she was generous and kind, and she reflected it all in her films, filling the screen with light.

She had also a very active humanitarian career, collaborating with UNICEF as Goodwill Ambassador and helping children in need all over the world.

She made some wonderful movies: With Roman Holiday (1953) she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. She is also well known for Sabrina (1954), War and Peace (1956), Charade (1963), My Fair Lady (1964), How to Steal a Million (1966)…but maybe, her most famous film is Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), where Hepburn’s performance of “Moon River” helped composer Henri Mancini and lyricist Johnny Mercer win an Oscar for Best Song.

I send you these links to the famous song in case you want to put it in your blog in Audrey’s remembrance.

If you prefer to remember her watching one of her movies, I would recommend without any doubt my favourite Audrey’s film: Love In The Afternoon (1957) titled as Ariane in Spain and directed by Billy Wilder. It’s an amazing comedy about a girl (Audrey Hepburn) who falls in love with a middle-aged playboy (Gary Cooper) while her father, a private detective (Maurice Chevalier), has been hired to entrap the playboy with the wife of a client.

I always like to watch this film in the original version, last year I had the opportunity of watching it on big screen at the cinema and I enjoyed it a lot. I didn’t find the trailer with subtitles, but I send you the beginning of the movie with Spanish subtitles, it’s very funny!
