Movie Recommendation: Perfect for a Dreary Winter Day

Type: Romantic classic

Actors: Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, Eddie Albert

Director: William Wyler

Writers: Dalton Trumbo, Ian McLellan Hunter, John Dighton

Title:  “Roman Holiday”

Why:  “Roman Holiday” is like a breath of spring air, pure charm, pure delight, perfect for a dreary winter day.


  1. Such a wonderful movie. A princess gets time off to be a real person. And a jaded reporter doesn’t take advantage of her. At least as I remember.

    • You remember very well, Mona. It’s absolutely lovely when the reporter does the right thing. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Saw this movie when it first came out 50 years or so ago. I always thought Audrey Hepburn was one of the greatest actresses ever. Check out “Wait Until Dark” if you haven’t seen it.

    • She is great, David. I’ve loved many of her films. I watched “Wait Until Dark” once, but couldn’t sleep well for several days. The film was a subtle “creepy”, very well crafted. Since I’m a bit of a “lightweight” when it comes to suspense and horror, I read and write romance. Cheers, Ashley

  3. Great choice Ashley!!

    • Thank you so much, Casey. It’s been raining all day here in the DFW metroplex, so I thought this movie might cheer a few folks up. Cheers, Ashley

  4. Thanks for the advice. It’s cold and rainy here today. Time for some Roman Holiday on my couch with a cup of cocoa. I love Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. Ahhh.

    • Sounds perfect, Jolyse. Enjoy! Cheers, Ashley

  5. I love this movie, though it’s been quite awhile since I saw it. Will have to watch it again. 🙂

    • Hope you enjoy it even more than last time, Rosalie. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
