YMMV / Roman Holiday

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Irving Radovitch wants to publish photos of the princess, saying, "She's fair game, Joe! It's always open season on princesses." Over fifty years later, Princess Diana was killed in Paris after being chased by paparazzi.
  • Moe: If you want a really good definition of this character type, look no further than Audrey Hepburn's role.
  • Values Dissonance: Nowadays, a semiconscious, clearly drugged woman found on a park bench would be taken immediately to the hospital.
