Roman Holiday Reviews

Tony Sloman
Radio Times

Immaculately directed by William Wyler, and written and played with style and grace, this is a film to treasure, both for its endearing action and marvellous performances.

Little White Lies

Hepburn represents all western cinema, finally allowed out to play on the cobbled streets of postwar Europe.

Total Film

Hepburn and Peck revel in their shared duplicity but almost take a backseat to the splendour of the Italian capital, which has rarely been given so much lens-love since.

The Paramount crew that worked on Roman Holiday reminded me of expert marksmen who had made "charm" their target and seldom if ever missed it.

The reason Roman Holiday works is because it understands Hepburn's place in the pantheon of Silver Screen icons

The newcomer named Audrey Hepburn gives the popular old romantic nonsense a reality it has seldom had before.

Mixes the romantic comedy formula of an unlikely couple slowly falling in love with some classic slapstick to create a movie that's tough not to be delighted by.

If only more filmmakers would remember that not all fairy-tale romances need to have a pat, happily-ever-after ending.

It's a beautiful snapshot into the past, both for the historic look of Rome and to witness the birth of the romantic comedy.

Delicious and delectable Audrey's Oscar-winning American debut. But not such a difficult feat with William Wyler backing you up.

[Wyler] times the chuckles with a never-flagging pace, puts heart into the laughs, endows the footage with some boff bits of business and points up some tender, poignant scenes in using the smart script and the cast to the utmost advantage.

Wyler lays out all the elements with care and precision, but the romantic comedy never comes together -- it's charm by computer.

EmanuelLevy.Com

Wyler's direction is heavyhanded (imagine what Lubitsch or Capra would have done with the romantic tale), but the actors (Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, and Eddie Albert) are charming and on-location shoot in Rome is major benefit even if the film is b/w.
