Died 20 January 1993 (aged 63) Tolochenaz, Switzerland.
Lived through the German occupation of The Netherlands during the Second World War.
Active as an actress from 1948 “Dutch in Seven Lessons”…
…to 1989 “Always”.
Ranked by the American Film Institute as the third greatest female screen legend in Golden Age Hollywood (behind Katharine Hepburn and Bette Davis).
Audrey shot to stardom in my favourite film of hers; “Roman Holiday” (1953) in which there are a number of humorous lines. My choice…
“I’ve never been alone with a man before, even with my dress on. With my dress off, it’s MOST unusual.”.

In 1989 Audrey was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF.
