“Secret People” is a 1952 British drama film, written and directed by Thorold Dickinson and starring Valentina Cortese, Serge Reggiani and Audrey Hepburn. The film is mainly known for providing Audrey Hepburn with her first significant film role and for leading to her big breakthrough in “Roman Holiday” on September 18, 1951, shortly after “Secret People” was finished but before its premiere. Thorold Dickinson made a screen test with the young starlet and sent it to director William Wyler, who was in Rome preparing “Roman Holiday”. Wyler wrote a glowing note of thanks to Dickinson, saying that “as a result of the test, a number of the producers at Paramount have expressed interest in casting her (in Roman Holiday).”
