Movie Details

Remarkable historic parks and gardens -- including gardens that have been restored at the American historical landmark, Mt. Vernon, and the varied public gardens of Paris -- are featured in this volume of the award-winning PBS series hosted by elegant actress Audrey Hepburn. Hepburn, wearing graceful dresses, wanders along the garden paths, makes observations about the flowers, and reads excerpts from poetry and literature. Narration by actor Michael York provides historical background and other intriguing information. The series visits more than 50 lovely gardens around the world, each volume having a specific theme. ~ Alice Duncan, Rovi
