Audrey Hepburn, who lived from 1929 to 1993, was a legendary actress who was in many films.
To commemorate Hepburn’s professional acting career, I have created the following chronological list of her top 10 best movies.
Honorable mentions: The Children’s Hour, Funny Face, and Robin and Marian.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #10: Two for the Road
The first movie on my list of the top 10 best Audrey Hepburn movies is Two for the Road. It was released in 1967, and stars Hepburn and Albert Finney. Hepburn received a Golden Globe nomination for her role as a woman in southern France who is examining her relationship with her husband, a character played by Finney.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #9: Love in the Afternoon
Another great movie that the actress was in that deserves to be on this list is Love in the Afternoon. The movie also stars Gary Cooper and is directed by Billy Wilder.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #8: How to Steal a Million
The1966 heist comedy movie How to Steal a Million, which stars Hepburn and Peter O’Toole, received stellar critical reviews and was a commercial success. Like many of the movie starring the beautiful actress, it is worth watching.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #7: Wait Until Dark
Another critical and commercial success was Wait Until Dark, which also stars Alan Arkin. Film critic Bosley Crowther enjoyed watching Hepburn’s performance in the movie. In his words, “the sweetness with which Miss Hepburn plays the poignant role, the quickness with which she changes and the skill with which she manifests terror attract sympathy and anxiety to her and give her genuine solidity in the final scenes.”
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #6: The Nun’s Story
Katharine Hepburn received an Academy Award nomination for her role as a nun in The Nun’s Story. Like many of her movies, it received wonderful reviews and fared well at the box office.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #5: Sabrina
Hepburn also received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in Sabrina. She ended up not winning the award, but her performance helped cement her significance as an excellent actress and fashion icon. The movie has a wonderful cast, as Humphrey Bogart and William Holden both had roles in it.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #4: My Fair Lady
One movie that everyone who enjoys watching movies should view is My Fair Lady. The movie received eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It was also a commercial success.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #3: Roman Holiday
Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress in the 1953 movie Roman Holiday. I could have included this movie as one of the top two Audrey Hepburn movies, but the next two proved to be more popular over the years.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #2: Charade
My favorite movie starring the legendary actress is Charade. This 1963 mystery movie also had an excellent cast, as it also featured James Coburn, Cary Grant, and Walter Matthau. Hepburn was in turn dramatic and comedic in this classic adventure. It still holds integrity after all of these years.
Top 10 Best Audrey Hepburn Movies #1: Breakfast at Tiffany’s
The last movie on my list of the top 10 best Audrey Hepburn movies is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The consensus of the movie on Rotten Tomatoes sums up the movie perfectly: “It contains some ugly anachronisms, but Blake Edwards is at his funniest in this iconic classic, and Audrey Hepburn absolutely lights up the screen.” In short, if you enjoy watching romantic comedies, than you should view this movie.
