Rare Audrey Hepburn is a tumblr blog featuring rare and popular photographs of the 'S wonderful Audrey Hepburn. I do not own any of these pictures; I do my best to credit the photographers of each picture as well as providing the date the picture was taken. I encourage all to message me if you have additional information on the photographs posted. Every picture posted is a great find I've stumbled upon during my Audrey Hepburn pictorial hunt. Also, follow me at My Humble Fash.

theessentialeccentricity asked: What film, you think, would had been Audrey's favorite? What film do you think she was most comfortable in?

I’ve read that Audrey felt a deep connection to her role in The Nun’s Story and that that film meant a great deal to her.  I’ve also read that she loved Funny Face because it was always a dream of hers to dance with Fred Astaire. She also enjoyed Breakfast at Tiffany’s and mentioned in interviews that if she saw the film on TV she would watch it. 

courkupine asked: Have you seen Audrey's early movies where she had really small roles? I made an effort to watch them a few years ago, but I couldn't find them anywhere.

I have! I actually bought The Lavender Hill Mob on DVD for a buck at an estate sale for the sole purpose of watching Audrey’s 2 second cameo.  It was worth it! Haha. 

If you are interested:

You can watch Audrey Hepburn in Monte Carlo Baby on youtube here. Très mignon!

 Audrey in Young Wives’ Tale on youtube here.

Audrey in Laughter in Paradise on youtube here.

Audrey in Lavender Hill Mob on youtube here.

Audrey in The Secret People on youtube here.

mygolddarkparadise asked: Thank you SOO much ! Do you know how I can watch the "nuns hour" and wait until dark I really want too see them

You can rent and buy The Nun’s Story on Amazon Instant here ($1.99 for 24 hour rental is pretty reasonable).  You can also rent or buy it on iTunes but I don’t know how I can link to that page.

Wait Until Dark can be rented or bought here and you can purchase the DVD here.

Both are exceptional films and I’m personally waiting for them to be released on Blu Ray. I can only imagine how fantastic that last, terrifying scene in Wait Until Dark will look on Blu Ray.  *shivers* :)

elisabuso asked: Hey, it's Elisa, another time :) I'm guessing if there's a pic of Audrey and Rock Hudson... I looked for it in the net but I didn't find anything :(

I want to say that I have seen a picture of Audrey and Rock Hudson but if I have I can’t remember where or when.  I will definitely try locating a picture of the two for you. Thanks for the question! :)

Update: ANSWER.

mygolddarkparadise asked: Do you know where I can buy Audrey Hepburn movies ?

I’ve bought all of mine on/at Amazon, Target, and iTunes.  A bunch of Audrey films have been recently released on Blu Ray, if you’re interested I made a post about it here

tonyarawr asked: Have you seen the Audrey Hepburn CGI ad for galaxy chocolate? What did you think of it?

I have and I must admit I’m not wild about it. It was beautifully done and every time the song Moon River begins to play in the commercial my heart melts and my eyes begin to water, yet, I’m not terribly keen on a CGI Audrey Hepburn. I guess I’m just fond of the original Audrey.

veloursbleuu asked: Okay so I watched the Audrey Hepburn story I put off watching it because of the shitty reviews and I had nothing to do today but seriously Jennifer love Hewitt did a poor job!!!! In terms of Audrey's story and life in you opinion is it accurately portrayed ??

The Audrey Hepburn Story was a poorly executed TV movie.  However, I cannot fault Jennifer Love Hewitt for making the film; I imagine it’s every Audrey fan’s dream to star in a movie about the enchanting actress.  My main complaint about the film was that the entire plot seemed to focus on the fact that Audrey was beautiful (no doubt) and that everyone loved Audrey mainly because she was pretty.  They missed out on an opportunity to explore the real Audrey Hepburn and the hardships she endured during her short lifetime.  If someone was to ever make another film on Audrey (although I rather they didn’t) they should model it after the film My Week with Marilyn.  Center it around one time in Audrey’s life as oppose to trying to cram her entire life into an hour and 30 minutes.  To be honest, I wouldn’t be opposed to a film about the production of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  There was a lot of drama during the filming of BAT that would make for a great movie. If you want to know more about the filming of Breakfast at Tiffany’s this is a great book to read: Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman. I also wrote a review of the book HERE.

ihideinmymusic asked: Do you know of ANY photographs with Jackie Bouvier/Kennedy/Onassis and Audrey? I heard Audrey was her style icon.

I can’t say that I do but I will definitely look for some.  I’ve also heard that. I’ve read/been told that she cut her hair short after seeing Audrey’s short haircut but that could all be conjecture. (Here’s a picture of Jackie in 1954. Looks cute!)image

xhollygolightly asked: What's your favourite Audrey film??

Sabrina. The movie may be about Sabrina falling for the cold and emotionally unavailable Linus Larrabee but to me it will always be about a young woman venturing to Paris to “let in la vie en rose”.

Thomas Fairchild: He’s still David Larrabee, and you’re still the chauffeur’s daughter. And you’re still reaching for the moon. 
Sabrina Fairchild: No, father. The moon is reaching for me.
