A Star Danced: Life of Audrey Hepburn Summary


A celebration of the life of Audrey Hepburn. It tells the story of her life from her childhood in Nazi-occupied Holland, through early aspirations to become a ballet dancer, to her debut on the screen to instant and universal acclaim, and her years as one of Hollywood's most sought-after stars, to her later life working among the poorest children of the Third World. After a series of minor revue and film roles in London, Hepburn was spotted by Colette, who immediately decided to cast her for the central role in the Broadway adaptation of her last novel "Gigi". Soon afterwards she was offered a role alongside Gregory Peck in "Roman Holiday", for which she collected the Best Actress Oscar. More successful parts followed: she won the Tony Award for Best Actress for "Ondine", captivated audiences as Natasha in "War and Peace" and was highly praised for her serious role in "The Nun's Story". Robyn Karney's work in film includes writing and editing, film criticism and film story consultancy. She is the author of "Who's Who in Hollywood" and co-author with Ronald Bergan of Bloomsbury's "Foreign Film Guide".
