Audrey Hepburn Movies: The List of the Very Best
Best Audrey Hepburn Movies of All Time
I have always been a huge Audrey fan, and I have seen all her films! However, this list is just one persons' opinion from 10 to number 1!
Let the countdown begin!
10. War and Peace (1956)
Short Plot: At the start of the 19th century, Napoleon's forces controlled much of Europe. In Russia, one of the few countries still unconquered, the army prepares to face Napoleon's troops in Austria. Pierre, who is not interested in fighting, goes through a dramatic change when his father dies. He is attracted to Natasha Rostov (Audrey Hepburn), Nicholas's sister, but gives in to petty desires and marries the shallow, materialistic Princess Helene (Anita Ekberg).
Other Stars: Henry Fonda, Herbert Lom
Awards:3 Oscar nominations, 4 other wins and 7 nominations
9. Wait Until Dark (1967)
Short Plot: Audrey Hepburn plays Susy Hendrix. Mike and Carlino are small time thugs who
find a woman's body in Susy's apartment. Susy's blindness is the key leading to the mystery drug doll in her apartment.
Other Stars: Alan Arkin, Richard Crenna
Awards:1 Oscar nomination, 1 other win and 3 nominations
8. Two for the Road (1967)
Short Plot: A very funny comedy that can be slightly confusing because it tracks the beginning, middle and near the end of a marriage. Adorable and perfect, this movie gives you the downs and outs of relationships with the beautiful south of France as the backdrop.
Other Stars: Albert Finney
Awards:1 Oscar nomination, 4 other wins and 4 nominations
7. Funny Face (1957)
Short Plot: Fantastic musical! Audrey was originally a dancer and she's having so much fun in this one! Audrey Hepburn is noticed by a fashion photographer in a bookstore. It develops in to so much more.

6. The Nun's Story (1959)
Short Plot: Gabrielle Van Der Mal (Audrey) gave up everything to become a nun. But her faith and her vows are forever being tested: in the missionary Congo hospital where she assists the handsome Dr. Fortunati and then at the mother house in France when World War II breaks out and nuns are forbidden by the order to take sides.
Other Stars: Peter Finch

5. Charade (1963)

Left penniless in Paris with police thinking it was her, Reggie realizes she's in serious trouble--her husband stole money from three shady men and they want their money back. Charming and amusing Cary Grant, comes to Reggie's aid. But he too has secrets and hidden loyalties.
Other Stars: Cary Grant, Walter Matthau
Awards:1 Oscar nomination, 5 other wins and 5 nominations
4. Sabrina (1954)
Plot: Sabrina (Audrey) is the daughter of the Larrabee family's chauffeur and
has been in love with David Larrabee all her life. David is
spoiled and a playboy, never noticing Sabrina for
years. After Sabrina goes to Paris, she returns an attractive and sophisticated woman, and David is now attracted to her.
David's brother Linus sees this and fears that David's wedding
with a very rich woman may be compromised and gets in the way!

3. Roman Holiday (1953)
Plot: A modern day princess (Audrey) escapes from her
royal duties on a trip to Rome, and in disguise, falls in
love with an American reporter. Amazing story line and acting. Such a classic!
Other Stars: Gregory Peck
Awards:Won 3 Oscars, 5 other wins and 11 nominations
2. Breakfast at Tiffanys (1961)
Short Plot: Brilliant, brilliant script. Audrey plays Holly Golightly, a woman who is surviving on money given to her by men. Holly is a deliciously eccentric New York socialite who is determined to marry a millionaire, but is second-guessed by the up-stairs writer who is a gigolo of sorts. Great Henry Mancini music, great costumes, great plot, great romance, great quotes, what's not to love? A classic must-see and absolutely charming and perfect.
Other Stars: George Peppard, Patricia Neal
Awards: Won 2 Oscars, 7 other wins and 7 nominations
1. My Fair Lady (1964)
Short Plot: Another musical with such great songs to sing along to. Audrey Hepburn plays Eliza Doolittle, a poor and unrefined flower girl living off the streets. Professor Higgins, a linguist makes a bet wanting to turn Eliza into a refined socialite, able to be passed of as a princess. This is truly a remarkable princess story with fantastic actors!
