General Admission

Acclaimed as one of the most elegant and debonair British actresses ever to work in Hollywood, Audrey Hepburn (1929–1993) graced such classic movies as Roman Holiday (1953), Sabrina (1954), Funny Face (1957), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) and My Fair Lady (1964) with memorable, iconographic appearances (she won an Oscar for Roman Holiday).

Wootton chronicles the life and glittering career of this actor, dancer, model and style icon: from growing up in Nazi-occupied Holland to ballerina training in London, Hollywood stardom and her Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, Tony, Grammy and Emmy wins; he also covers her later years, when she was best known for her tireless humanitarian work with UNICEF – for which she received the 1992 Presidential Medal of Freedom.
