Six Pix: Audrey Hepburn

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

A little bit of a departure for this Six Pix. Instead of posters were highlighting some iconic photos from Audrey Hepburn’s filmography.

Included are: Roman Holiday (1953); My Fair Lady (1964); Breakfast At Tiffany’s (1961); Sabrina (1954); The Children’s Hour (1962); and Funny Face (1957).

In Roman Holiday Princess Ann decides to let her hair down, literally and figuratively. Henry Higgins looks down at his creation, the newly-transformed Eliza Doolittle. We get to see an image of budding womanhood in Sabrina. And, of course, there’s the iconic image of Holly Golightly brown-bagging it outside of Tiffany’s. As great as all six of these images are, my favorite among them is The Children’s Hour: In a single shot it depicts the impending devastation as a spoiled child tells an untrue tale while a horrified Karen and incredulous Martha helplessly look on, their fate sealed.

Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below! (And please feel free to suggest future topics.)
