Audrey Hepburn: a bio-bibliography
Though starring in only some twenty films and two engagements on Broadway, Audrey Hepburn earned her reputation through the quality of her work rather than the quantity of her performances. She was never driven by her career, and took years off between movies to spend with her family. As a child growing up in Arnhem when the Nazis invaded Holland, Hepburn witnessed the tragedy of war first-hand, and the impact of her experiences led her to a strong devotion to humanitarian causes. This book chronicles the career of Audrey Hepburn and sheds light on her private and enigmatic life. The brief biography included in the volume overviews her experiences and provides a context for her work as a performer. The entries that follow are devoted to her individual performances and include cast and credit information, plot synopses, excerpts from reviews, and critical commentary on her work. Entries are grouped in chapters devoted to her stage, film, radio, and television appearances, while appendices list her awards. An annotated bibliography lists and describes sources of additional information about this enchanting performer.
