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

IMDB rating:6.8/10

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

IMDB rating:7.9/10

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

IMDB rating:7.4/10

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.

Other Stars: Fred Astaire

Awards:4 Oscar nominations, 1 other win and 5 nominations

IMDB rating:7.0/10

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

Awards:8 Oscar nominations, 13 other wins and 12 nominations

IMDB rating:7.6/10

5. Charade (1963)

Short Plot: Reggie (Audrey) is about to divorce her wealthy, cold, awful husband, but he's thrown from a train before she gets the chance. 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

IMDB rating:8.0/10

4. Sabrina (1954)

Short 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!

Other Stars: Humphery Bogart, William Holden

Awards:Won an Oscar, 4 other wins and 7 nominations

IMDB rating:7.8/10

3. Roman Holiday (1953)

Short 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

IMDB rating:8.1/10

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

IMDB rating:7.8/10

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!

Other Stars: Rex Harrison

Awards: Won 8 Oscars, 13 other wins and 10 nominations

IMDB rating:7.9/10

      My favorite will always be Funny Face. It was the first Audrey Hepburn movie I ever saw. Her character is probably my favorite because she is both intellectual and beautiful. She actually gets to sing in this movie and even though she isn't the most skillful and talented singer she still has a beautiful voice. I love the songs from it more than My Fair Lady probably because I'm a huge Gershwin fan. You get to see a lot of great work by Givenchy. She stars with none other than Fred Astaire who is always great. The shots of Paris are gorgeous. The part that has sold me the most though is Audrey's dancing. It's what she always wanted to do and she got to, Basal Metabolism is my favorite scene. I think this movie is so underrated even amongst Audrey fans. (It was also Audrey's favorite of her movies)

      LWWE: I must say, your "top 5" look awfully similar to my top 5! Glad to see there are still so many classic Audrey fans out there even today!

      Love the list, my top five are:

      5. Charade/ Funny Face (simply couldn't decide)

      4. Sabrina

      3. Roman Holiday

      2. Breakfast at Tiffany's

      1. My Fair Lady (I do musicals, and Audrey's character has made me decide that one way or another I'm going to play Eliza at some point in my life)

      Great list, though I've never seen Wait Until Dark, a Nun's Story or War and Peace... I'll add them to my list.

      mothermonster: I agree, the two for the road is a fantastic Audrey film, esp the outfits!

      AllsuretyBonds: She has a level of classiness you just don't see in actresses of today. Sabrina is an amazing movie!

      I have seen almost everyone of these movies. I adore Audrey Hepburn. She is such a talented beautiful person. Sabrina and Roman Holidays would have to be my two favorites.

      Very nice list of films and I love all the images, especially the original movie posters. "Two For the Road" is so underrated and before its time in the way it portrays a relationship. I too love our lady Audrey. :)

      I have heard that! I wonder why they dubbed her out? She sounded great on the Henry Mancini song... Indeed we must start a campaign. I would definitely buy the 'new' version with the 'original' singing voice! =) Great idea winsom!

      Great selections yenajeon. Did you know that Audrey sang Moon River with her own voice in Breakfast at Tiffany's? Warner Brothers has her singing tracks for My Fair Lady. Don't you think they could make a lot of money if they re-released it with her voice instead of the dubbed one? Let's start a campaign. =:)

      Classics never die. I think she will live on forever in our hearts she had more class than most actress ever will. They don't make them like that any more.
