I've found in a lot of her films Audrey Hepburn is paired with men too old to be her romantic lead. Often they are old enough to be her father: Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant.

Yes, but I love Cary Grant so much that I didn't really mind it that much.
He didn't like being paired with such young actresses either though.

Wait Until The Dark is such a thriller.
Not her stereotypical role, but she pulled it off perfectly.
I got shivers when i watched it

For me, she was best in Breakfast at Tiffany's. She was so charming and elegant and quirky at the same time.
Love love love it.

Yes she was great with Gregory Peck. He wasn't graying or wrinkled like Cary Grant or Fred Astaire. But he was still a little old for my taste.

Wait Until Dark has one of the scariest scenes in the history of cinema!!!
I get chills when I rewatch it and know what's going to happen.

So I watched "Wait Until Dark" yesterday, and all I can say is WOW.

What a great movie. For anyone who thinks Audrey isn't that great of an actress, you should see that movie. She plays a very convincing blind woman, and I found myself forgetting that she can actually see.
I give that movie 5 out of 5 Stars

I agreeShe is extremely beautiful, loves ballet (like me), has a great fashion sense, had a wonderful career and also did alot of charity. She is my role model

I have it right now, but I haven't watched it yet. I will either watch it today or in the next couple of days. I'll definitely let you know.
