'Summertime'

The other Hepburn -- Katharine -- earned an Oscar nomination for 1955's "Summertime," David Lean's sumptuous romantic drama set in Venice based on Arthur Laurents' play "The Time of the Cuckoo." Hepburn plays Jane Hudson, a middle-aged single secretary who goes to the Italian city for her first vacation abroad and ends up falling in love for the first time with a handsome Italian named Renato (Rossano Brazzi). She is completely head over heels when she learns he is married with children. Sigh.
