Best known for her performances in Roman Holiday (1953), Sabrina, (1954), and Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), Audrey Hepburn is an icon of cinema and style. Throughout her life she was cool, with not a hair out of place. But Hepburn’s life was more than just wearing fashionable sunglasses and tossing off witty lines -- she was a humanitarian, a ballet dancer, and a survivor of German occupation in World War II. Hepburn came from money, but she experienced hardships both economic and personal that gave her a unique look at the world, one that she used to help people after giving up her film career.
