Box-set collection of five of Audrey Hepburn's most famous films. In her Hollywood debut 'Roman Holiday' (1953), Hepburn won an Academy Award as Princess Anne, the bored royal who absconds from her duties and meets up with Gregory Peck's American ex-pat journalist. Billy Wilder directs her in 'Sabrina Fair' (1954) as the shy daughter of a wealthy family's chauffeur, who returns from two years in Paris as a sophisticated young woman. The musical romantic comedy 'Funny Face' (1957) sees Hepburn playing alongside Fred Astaire to the music of Gershwin as a young bookshop clerk transformed into an international fashion model. Adapted from the Truman Capote novella, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961) sees Hepburn in her archetypal role as dizzy call-girl Holly Golightly, trying not to fall for George Peppard's failed writer in New York. In 'Paris When it Sizzles' (1964), Hepburn plays a secretary hired to help alcoholic writer Richard Benson (William Holden) finish up a screenplay for a Hollywood producer, with only two days until the end of his deadline.

Both celebrated as a landmark achievement in the development of film form and reviled for its racist characterisations and affirmation of the Ku Klux Klan, D W Griffith's epic account of the American Civil War and its aftermath is still one of the most controversial films ever made.

Things go from bad to worse when Ben Cameron's little sister dies at the hands of Gus, a black farmhand, and Ben dons a Ku Klux Klan mask both to avenge her death and to come to the rescue of his beloved girlfriend (Lillian Gish), who has been kidnapped by a corrupt mixed-race governor.

Classic comedy from Ernst Lubitsch in which a conman finds himself torn between two beautiful women.
