You've named 3 of my favorites. Also I'd say Roman Holiday is a must see. It was the film that made her a star and it just came out on DVD.

Love in the Afternoon and Sabrina are two other good romantic comedies staring her. Funny Face was good, but I'm hoping for a better DVD in the future as the film transfer has some issues.

And for something a bit more serious, The Children's Hour was was very good.

I've got to do something about Sabrina--I'm a huge Bogart and Billy Wilder fan, but I've never seen it!

After you've seen her classic films, try the odd but interesting Robin and Marion. Not the best film ever made, but it has an interesting-if-bleak message and a killer cast (Hepburn, Sean Connery, Richard Harris, Robert Shaw, Nicol Williamson, Denholm Elliot, and Ian Holm.)

I'll second Roman Holiday. It was on my priority list and I got it the day it was out. Very nicely done transfer. Its correct AR too. You can't go wrong. Nicely priced too if I recall.

In addition to several of the above, I also like Two for the Road and Wait Until Dark. Unfortunately, neither are on DVD yet.

The one that comes to mind immediately is Sabrina so that's my choice. The others mentioned are equally good, however.

I think a more appropriate question would be "bad audrey hepburn movies?." The answer: there are none...it's audrey hepburn. See them all.

I just Roman Holiday for the first time last week, and decided to check out some other Audrey Hepburn movies. I saw "Funny Face" last night. It was better than I though it would be. I don't think Audrey is necessarily a good singer, but she can sure dance. The story was a little slow, but it was fun. I think Audrey was perfect for the role.

I'm also looking into some Peck movies because of just seeing Roman Holiday (and with the latest events).

Breakfast at Tiffany's & Roman Holiday are my favorites. Funny Face is a close third.
