There is more to an Icon (like Audrey Hepburn) then their look!

I had two different conversations about Audrey Hepburn with two young women recently.  Happily they knew who she was but sadly they didn’t even know she was an actress. They only knew that she was a beautiful Icon that was very famous.

They have seen the look a likes in commercials or the ads in magazines with old pictures of her.  But they have never seen one of her movies.

When  I told them that she was an amazing actress who won an Oscar and a Tony. I explained about how wonderful she was and what my favorite movies were.

Do you want to know the first question they asked me? Both of them, asked me the same question.

“Are they in black and white?  I don’t watch black and white movies.”

Does this break any other classic movie fans hearts? They have been able to make color movies since the 1930’s. It is a choice to make a black and white movie. They are not just classics they are a style.

On top of that to miss black and white movies of amazing actors like Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and Spencer Tracy is more then a shame it is a disaster.

But the biggest disappointment was they had never seen one of Audrey’s movies.  Not one.

So I told them about two of my favorite Audrey Hepburn movies (in color of course) very different and special.

I hope the next time I see them they watched Charade and How To Steal A Million. But audrey in sabrinabecause they won’t watch black and white they will miss Sabrina. Sad, huh?
