A Quarter of a Million Dollars . . . To Die For
Audrey Hepburn only appeared in 26 motion pictures and a few television shows, but her acting reputation and motion picture fame is the equal of any actor who has ever appeared on the big screen. She is credited with starring in five of the top 100 movies of all time, a number equaled only by Humphry Bogart.
Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929 in Brussels, Belgium. Her mother was a wealthy Dutch Baroness from Arnhem, Netherlands. Her young years began with wealthy education and friends, learning to live an aristocratic genteel lifestyle in Britain and Europe.
When World War 2 began, her father had left the family and her mother took her back home to Arnhem in the Netherlands. When Nazi soldiers invaded the city, Audrey and her mother hid from them, often going without food to the point of malnutrition. She and her mother sometimes ate tulip bulbs and baked grass into loaves of bread during those days. Her uncle was executed by the Nazis for helping the resistance, and rumors exist that Audrey was also part of the resistance.
After years of near malnutrition during the war, in May of 1945 the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration arrived with food supplies, helping to bring her years of starvation to an end. After Audrey Hepburn became famous and wealthy from motion pictures, she devoted most of her life to helping the United Nations UNICEF fund that provides for children and mothers in desperate need.
In this spy thriller, she is the widow of a spy who stole a quarter of a million dollars with the help of four spy buddies during the war. With her husband dead, and supposedly in possession of the money, the surviving spies believe that she has the money, and her life is in great danger. Five strange men will put themselves into her life, and she needs to trust one of them to help her avoid death from the others, but which one should she trust? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
