The humble and poised Audrey Hepburn made a great impact on film history with her memorable screen presence. Here are the top picks every fan–old and new–should see.

Roman Holiday (1953)

Roman Holiday awakened the world to the budding star. In this romantic film, Hepburn plays a cooped up European princess who escapes her confinement. Once her character is discovered by an American journalist (Gregory Peck), he takes her on a comical journey in Rome. Yet unbeknownst to the princess, his intentions are to get the interview of a lifetime.

Sabrina (1954)

Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden create a tense love triangle in this classic movie. Bogart and Holden play wealthy brothers, and Heburn portrays their soft-spoken chauffeur’s daughter.

After a life-changing stay in Paris, Sabrina Fairchild (Hepburn) takes her newfound sophistication back to her childhood home. Spoiled David Larrabee notices the changes in Sabrina and falls for her. But so does his thick-skinned older brother, Linus (Bogart).

Sabrina also established a Hepburn’s life-long relationship with famous designer Hubert de Givenchy who created her timeless ball gown in the film.

Funny Face (1957)

Lanky, but intelligent, Jo Stockton (Hepburn) attracts the eye of fashion photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire). After he discovers the unique look of Stockton, she gets offered a modeling contract but quickly becomes swept up in the egotistical world of fashion.

In the movie, both Astaire and Hepburn provide the main entertainment with their dancing skills in this Gershwin-infused musical comedy.
