Audrey Hepburn's first screen test

The British Film Institute is teaming up with Hewlett-Packard to publicize more than 300 film clips from their vast archives. A new "mediateque," a sort of mini-film theatre, will open March 14 in London's South Bank and will be completely free and open to the public. Audrey Hepburn's first screen test ever will be available, along with Queen Elizabeth II's coronation and early Victorian films. BFI also hopes to release around 300 more clips before the end of the year to the general public. You can read more here.

If you have access to cable TV, tomorrow night (Friday, Feb. 23) TLC is airing "The Greatest Fashion Icons In Film." You're right in figuring that Audrey will be featured! There's not much information about this show yet, but if you can, watch it! I'm sure it will be interesting, and maybe someone will be kind enough to tape it and share the Audrey-relevant parts with those who don't have cable. You can read more here.

Thanks for the info about the TLC show. Hopefully they will play it again as there are already so many good movies on TCM tonight!

or maybe we'll TiVo it.
