About this title

Synopsis:

Audrey Hepburn, slim, dark, almost waif-like, was a star in an age that favoured well-upholstered blondes; her vitality, innocence and beguiling eyes overrode contemporary conventions of beauty and transported her to the top of Hollywood's tree. In tracking down a number of her closest friends and relations, including international financier Lord Hanson, and talking for the first time to her two husbands, Paris has written the most complete biography of Hepburn to date.

Review:

Barry Paris loves Audrey Hepburn, and who can blame him? His exuberant profile of the movie star traces Hepburn's life from her childhood in the Netherlands (where she aided the Dutch resistence) through her Hollywood career (from her Oscar-winning performance in Roman Holiday to Steven Spielberg's Always). Paris, a veteran of Hollywood biography books, wants to free his readers of any false impressions that might sully the late star's reputation. The impression that Hepburn was a snob, he persuades us, was the result of an introverted character formed by her experiences during the war. This wartime experience both fed Hepburn's love of the spotlight and inspired a concern for the poor and powerless that compelled her to campaign for UNICEF from 1988 until her death in 1993. Some of the most fascinating material in this delightfully readable volume concerns the impact the ever-elegant Audrey Hepburn had on women's style and self-conception. If you don't already love her, Paris's book will at the least evoke admiration of her, if not enlist you in a movement for her beatification.
