    Agents of SMOOCHJuly 5, 2020Virtual Summer Vacation: Roman Holiday
    13 Princess Anna's Day Off

    Our Virtual Vacation continues with this bonus episode! Join us on our first Crossover Mission with Shelly Brisbin and her Lions, Towers & Shields Podcast.

    We offer you a summer movie set in Rome. Directed by William Wyler, and starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, Roman Holiday tells the story of an American newspaper reporter who meets a princess and liberates her from the confinement of her royal station for a romantic adventure in 1950s Rome for a classic royal and the commoner tale. The people and the scenery are beautiful, and the actors have lovely chemistry. This is among the earliest, and best of the 1950s-60s films that took Americans to a Europe that had finally begun recovering from the horrors of World War II.
