Classic old black and white movie, the way I remember movies being. Wish they played more of these on tv as they used to.

I saw this movie in 1954 and loved it then. This time, I still enjoyed it, but over the years have become a bit more cynical. Loved the romantic story, and the actors, two of my all time favourites... Read more

Audrey Hepburn is beautiful. Watched it knowing it was one of the old classics and while it was a bit slow it was also good to see one of the old school movies. A must for everyone to see, if only to see how it was done in the old days.

We weren't at all sure about this one, but it turned out to be a very enjoyable film. Loved seeing 1950s Rome, even if it was black and white. Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck are fabulous.

Audrey Hepburn was angelic and lovely as the modern princess of her time and is partnered by the excellent acting of Gregory Peck as the newspaperman.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was great to see Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck again after all these years. You kinda miss the old type movies like this

Nice, feel-good Sunday afternoon type movie. Hadn't previously watched any of the old classic black and whites so was pleasantly surprised to get a few laughs and the already mentioned, feel-good factor out of this.

This movie was brilliant and I really enjoyed it. An absolute must if you're an Audrey Hepburn fan. Shot in black in white, this added to the movie rather than detracted from it. Highly recommended.
