Audrey Hepburn became an overnight sensation in William Wyler's 1953 romance "Roman Holiday" as a bored princess who decides to slip away incognito while in Rome. She also finds love with American newspaper reporter Gregory Peck, who first befriends the princess because he thinks she will make a great story but then becomes smitten with her. Though it doesn't end happily ever after, there's no doubt that many female members of the audience traveled to the Eternal City to find their own Gregory Peck.
