“Before I even met Audrey, I had a crush on her, and after I met her, just a day later, I felt as if we were old friends… Most men who worked with her felt both fatherly or brotherly about her, while harboring romantic feelings about her… She was the love of my life.”— William Holden

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. And the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.Audrey Kathleen Ruston aka Audrey Hepburn | 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUDREY!
There is no doubt that the princess did become a queen — not only on the screen. One of the most loved, one of the most skillful, one of the most intelligent, one of the most sensitive, charming actresses — and friends, in my life — but also in the later stages of her life, the UNICEF ambassador to the children of the world. The generosity, sensitivity, the nobility of her service to the children of the world and the mothers of the world will never be forgotten. – Gregory Peck on Audrey Hepburn

“It was not in Audrey’s character to complain, but the emotional content of the script and the slow pace were taking a toll on everyone, This was when Jim Garner was at his best. he had an off-the-wall humor, and when things got especially grim he would say something funny to break everyone up and literally save the day.” - Bob Willoughby
