Audrey Hepburn An Elegant Spirit – Summer Reading Classic Film Book vol. 4


Sean Hepburn Ferrer has written a beautiful memoir about his mother Audrey Hepburn. It is not a regular Hollywood biography mainly because Audrey Hepburn and her family didn’t live a “Hollywood life”. Instead Sean writes about a kind and humble woman who loved her family more than anything and who after her successful film career devoted her time to charity work as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. The book is full of photos from family albums and also publicity shots and film stills. Sean Hepburn Ferrer doesn’t go into detail about his mother’s film career. We all know the highlights so well and there are probably several biographies that mainly deal with Hepburn’s films. What SHF has accomplished here is a tribute to a beloved mother and best friend, not a film star. It is a joy to read and anyone who has ever enjoyed watching Audrey Hepburn films will surely enjoy this book as well! I haven’t seen all Audrey Hepburn’s films, I’ve never stumbled across her early films. Also Green Mansions is still on my must watch list.

    Nice review! There has been so much written about Audrey Hepburn that I’m sure it’s nice to get a family perspective.
