I had just tuned into, near the end, a charming movie from 1966, "How to Steal a Million," when Audrey Hepburn uttered the line, "Do I look alright?" to Peter O'Toole. I nearly choked. WHAT!?! - when did she not look better than alright. The juxtaposition of that line with that adorable beauty struck me as so absurdly humorous. I cannot think of a time when Audrey Hepburn was, at the least, charming and lovely or stunning and captivating.
I am hard pressed to think of an actress today that captures anything near that class, style or charm. What has happened to our movie culture? Can you think of someone who comes close?
I like Jennifer Anniston for many of the same reasons but she falls short by an order of magnitude. I like Sandra Bullock in interviews, she appears genuine, sweet and charming. But how about the class and style?
Are we too jaded? Is our culture too crude and boorish to enjoy decency, style, comportment, morality, etc...?
Audrey Hepburn was fantastic, definitely wholesome. I can't think of anyone that comes close, although I'd have to say with regards to class and finesse, I think Nicole Kidman and Angelina Jolie possess a bit of both.
