Audrey Hepburn Week: Movies - Audrey's Comeback and Final Roles

Audrey attempted a comeback in 1976, co-starring with Sean Connery, in the period piece Robin and Marian, which was moderately successful.

In 1979, Hepburn took the lead role of Elizabeth Roffe in the international production of Bloodline, re-teaming with director Terence Young (Wait Until Dark). She shared top billing with co-stars Alan Arkin, Ben Gazzara, James Mason and Romy Schneider.

Audrey's last starring role in a cinematic film was with Ben Gazzara in the 1981 comedy They All Laughed, directed by Peter Bogdanovich. The film was overshadowed by the murder of one of its stars, Bogdanovich's girlfriend, Dorothy Stratten; the film was released after Stratten's death but only in limited runs.

Audrey's last film role was a cameo appearance as an angel in Steven Spielberg's Always in 1988.
