Featuring ample film clips and rare footage of screen tests and interviews, "The Magic Of Audrey" captures the unique allure and charisma of one of the world’s most famous and photographed women.

Audrey Hepburn, who lit up the silver screen for decades with her beauty and elegance, is one of Hollywood's all time greatest stars.

The essence of grace and charm, she brought a certain "magic" quality to a myriad of memorable films from "Sabrina" to "Breakfast at Tiffany's," and from "Roman Holiday" to "My Fair Lady."

"The Magic Of Audrey" revisits her classic roles; the causes she championed; the people she loved, the clothes she wore and the fashions she inspired, and her leading men — including Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Gregory Peck.

An inspiration and role model, Audrey Hepburn devoted much of her time and effort in later years to her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations.

"My career is a complete mystery to me. It's been a total surprise since the first day. I never thought I was going to be an actress; I never thought I was going to be in movies. I never thought it would all happen the way it did." - Audrey Hepburn
