Today in history

On this day in 1953, “Roman Holiday,” featuring Audrey Hepburn in her first starring movie role, premiered in New York City.

Hepburn’s performance as a European princess who ditches her official duties and falls for an American journalist (played by Gregory Peck) while on tour in Rome, earned her an Academy

Award for Best Actress and instantly established her as a leading Hollywood star.
