For the first time ever on 4K, the 1953 romantic comedy Roman Holiday features a legendary, Oscar-winning performance from Breakfast at Tiffany’s‘ Audrey Hepburn (in her first starring role).

It’s the story of a modern-day princess who, rebelling against the royal obligations, explores Rome on her own. She soon meets an American newspaperman (Gregory Peck, To Kill a Mockingbird) who pretends ignorance of her true identity, in the hopes of obtaining an exclusive story. Naturally, his plan falters as they inevitably fall in love.

Featuring Eddie Albert as a carefree cameraman pal, a classic Dalton Trumbo screenplay, expert direction from William Wyler, and featuring Edith Head’s Oscar-winning costumes, it’s a timeless romantic comedy considered to be one of the greatest films from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Oh, and there are a bunch of special features!
