Tomorrow is May 4th and on that day Audrey Hepburn was born in 1929. She’s no longer with us but we’re celebrating her all day long! You’ll probably see the Star Wars-themed hashtag #Maythe4thBeWithYou but I’m changing it to #Maythe4thBeWithAudrey with blog posts from contributing writers around the classic movie blogosphere and a look at her hidden feminism and her contributions to fashion in a special podcast. The piece features interviews with these wonderfully talented people I’ve been able to meet through #TCMParty. Learn more about them and give them a follow on Twitter:
TCM has a great lineup of Audrey Hepburn’s work that showcases her range that is rarely given credit. It kicks off at 7:15 am with what is widely considered her best dramatic film, The Nun’s Story. After that, head over to Paris for Love in the Afternoon at 9:45 am. At noon, one of her later screen films, Robin and Marian, with Sean Connery airs, it’s a beautiful love story. Then, the terrifying Wait Until Dark airs 2:00 pm, if you’ve never seen it, you’ll never be able to look at Alan Arkin the same way. Luckily, Audrey Hepburn is there to calm your nerves at her most charming in Sabrina at 4:00 pm. Ending the marathon is the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s at 6:00 pm.
Flickin’ Out will be updated throughout the day and on Twitter as the blog posts pour in. I can’t wait to share all of this great content to honor cinema’s fairest lady. May the 4th Be With Audrey!
