Audrey Hepburn: In Her Own Words (Home Use) is a 1993 documentary about the beautiful screen legend with an introduction by her "Roman Holiday" co-star Gregory Peck. The actress recounts her life, both the triumphs and disappointments, in her own modest style. She describes the difficult childhood in war-torn Europe and how she found her way to the movie screen. Her memorable Hollywood career included classic films such as "My Fair Lady" and "Charade." Actor Robert Wolders, Ms. Hepburn's companion for many years, also joins the conversation and adds his personal insights. The film then follows Hepburn in her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. She always dedicated time to volunteer work, and this particular role allowed her to focus on children. She travels to Niger, where poverty and malnutrition cause deaths in a huge number of mothers and children. In Tanzania, Hepburn describes the horror of malaria affecting over 90% of the children under the age of five.
