Kimberly Farr gives a solid performance of a major biography. Donald Spoto's testament to the life and work of Audrey Hepburn celebrates not only her life but also her famous film characters. Farr's voice is pleasantly rich. She reads with an effortless tempo, seamlessly transitioning between descriptions and dialogue. Fans of Hollywood trivia will savor the "making of" stories of Hepburn's films and the detailed descriptions of filmmaking in the '50s and '60s. Devotees of Hepburn will enjoy the unfolding of her life from nearly starved war survivor to leading lady to ambassador for UNICEF. A remarkable life is gracefully presented in a beautifully read biography. R.F. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
