Publicity photos of Audrey Hepburn and husband Mel Ferrer in the 1957 TV movie Mayerling.
Based on a true events, Mayerling is the tragic love story between Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria (portrayed by Mel Ferrer) and his mistress Baroness Mary Vetsera (played by Audrey Hepburn). This made for TV movie originally aired in 1957 and hasn’t been seen since. Visit this youtube channel to help get this film officially released for the first time since it’s original air date. Let’s make history! (Youtube Video: It’s rather long so skip ahead to 5:00 min and 6:50 min to see the lovely Audrey Hepburn in Mayerling.)
I am fully aware that Belle and her dress were modeled after Audrey and her dress in Roman Holiday, but I think Belle’s look is much similar to Audrey’s look in Mayerling. (seriously! the hair, the dress, everything!) This may be merely a coincidence, but I found it to be pretty interesting.
